The Bois de la Cambre in Brussels is one of the city’s most romantic spots on a summer night.
Head to the relaxed outdoor bar Le Kiosque in the middle of the woods to sit under the trees at red metal tables. You can drink coffee, a glass of white wine or an En Stoemelings beer served in a chunky glass.

But you need to book fast for these popular events. This can be done on the organisation's website.
