    A Place You Will Not Want To Leave

    Brussels is great for travellers. So much to see and do. So much history all around you, past and present. The culture of food is excellent and the choice of bars and drinks is unparalleled.

    Insider Tip:Go to Delerium Cafe. Everyone tells you to and there is a reason why - it's awesome. Try Kwak in the Kwak Glass.

    Grand Place (literally)

    Brussels is a beautiful city, with a great deal of things to see. We spent 2 days there, but I think one more would have been ideal to enter the museums and attractions. It is a fair sized city but is totally possible to go on walking to most places, although the metro system is very good and easy to use.

    Insider Tip:Museum Magritte is very nice and you can buy a combo to other two museums near it for a cheap price. Try to do the Comic Strips' walk, there are several murals around the city depicting famous characters like Tintin and Asterix. If you will be there for only two days, it is best to buy only a 24h ticket to the metro, because it actually entitles you to the day you buy and the next one.

    Amazing City You've Never Had on Your List

    Brussels is definitely a city that people think of as a stop over before Amsterdam, but really this city deserves some credit. It has AMAZING beer and beautiful buildings. If you have a chance to go during December, the Christmas markets are a sight to see!

    Insider Tip:Take the Sandemans walking tour, they will show you the city and you'll learn things about the city you never would've visited otherwise.

    The sandman beer tasting tour was definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Brussels. PLEASE.. I beg you, to go to Delirium café. Beer, drunk, hangover. Need I say more?

This city is also the EU capital full of official government offices to walk around just outside of the city.
