Looking for European Trip mid-november: Belgium & Switzerland?

I'm looking for a trip to europe in mid november. I enjoy most exploring towns and cities, relaxing with a nice cup of coffee, and hiking in the wilderness.

I was thinking of doing Belgium/Switzerland during this time.

Any thoughts on if this is an ok idea?

It's hard to find a good European city in november!

I love Belgium!!

The paradise of chocolate, waffles, beers and fries :) 

And plenty of things to do and see.

Brussels is simply awesome. The Grand Place is to die for. Get lost in the small streets around Grand Place and see the Manneken Pis (he is tiny but worth a photo). If you finally go there do not miss the below:

- PLEASE have brunch at Peck 47 : they do the most amazing smoothies and egg dishes i have ever tasted. 

- have a beer at Delirium Cafe: they have thousands of beers, cool bar

- try out a Brussels Waffle Workshop and learn how to prepare, bake & enjoy your own delicious Belgian waffles ;)

If you go Belgium then i would totally go to Ghent and Bruges as well.

And if you go to Ghent have a waffle at the train station: there is a tiny shop that probably makes the best waffles EVER and have a coffee at Mokabon bvba. THE BEST COFFEE YOU HAVE EVER TASTED! (for real)

PS: i work for so if you need more help let me know ;)

That is very helpful! The one thing I am concerned about is the weather in mid november. I would love to visit Belgium some day, but wonder if it will be too cold/rainy then?

It is going to be a bit cold. That is for sure. But i think it adds to the city.. During summer you should visit countries like Italy, Greece, Spain, South of France.. I believe that November is great :) and as my Danish friends say: "“There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing!" :)

well.. it is going to be a bit cold. but i dont think it is that bad. normally November is cold but very bearable. January is worse.

Hi Josh,

You could come to Dublin - you would be warmly welcomed.

We do open fires, candlelight and good music like no other place on earth! AND you could hike part (or all of) the Wicklow Mountains There is a series of walks called the Wicklow Way that criss crosses about 129km of treks through the mountains, taking in Roundwood Glendalough 

and lots more. It is real wilderness in parts and can be really beautiful on a frosty November day.

Wherever you go have a blast!
