As the curtains fall on 2023, the Belgian capital of Brussels is proving itself more than ready to take on the challenge of hosting the best New Year’s Eve parties, club nights and festivities this 31 December.

Is Brussels good for New Year's Eve?

For music fans and partygoers in Brussels, waving in a new year isn’t really about glittery, over-the-top celebration. Instead, especially expect real, raw, and immersive experiences.

Belgium's capital has a rich music heritage, and this diversity is well and truly reflected in its clubbing scene, so you’re likely to be spoiled for choice. 

What do Belgians do at New Year's?

You may see New Year's Eve bring referred to as “Sint Sylvester Vooranvond” in Belgium.  Much like in other countries, revellers await the new year, and at midnight will toast to the following year and exchange kisses. 

In Brussels, those celebrating the New Year might also take a wander around Grand Place, the Esplanade of the Atomium and more of Brussels' famous landmarks and attractions.
