Day trip from Luxembourg to Brussels
I'm planning to visit Brussels from Luxembourg mid of June. We are 4 adults and one child, 7 years. I drive myself.
We love nature and scenic places and not a fan of museums.
What are must visit places and what all can we fit in a day? My plan is to leave Luxembourg at 4pm, stay over the night in a small city/ village and then reach to Brussels next day at 4pm.
We like to see as much as possible.
Any suggestions for driving route?

Could hed to Namur/Dinant area of great natural beauty and though not on direcdt route probably not far off.

Thanks PalenQ,

Can we stay over the night in Namur? Is it a good idea?

topping for you -maybe someone like Belgian tulips will see this and have more knowledge and suggestions.

Sorry, not that familiar with that part of the country. I always do Luxemburg-Brussel in one go. It's not that far.
There's a post here somewhere from another poster regarding this, I'll see if I can find it.

Here is some info;

Dinant rather than Namur. Perhaps Durbuy or Bastogne.

There's a castle just along the motorway that your 7-year old may enjoy; Lavaux Sainte Anne.

....and if you are interested in caves, have a look at Han-sur-Lesse Home - Domain of the Caves of Han
