Images Of Brussels

Think of a city and you normally associate it with something. Think of Venice and images of canals flow into your head; imagine Paris and visions of the Eiffel Tower will come streaming into your mind. But Brussels is different. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what Brussels is famous for. The problem is, there are simply too many things to relate it to. This is where you will find Art Nouveau on every second street corner. It's also home to the European Union. Then you've got beer, chocolate, cartoon murals...the list goes on. Just ensure you have enough time to take it all in.

    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?

    Lovely city

    I simply love Brussels. I visited it twice in my first time in Europe. I miss it sometimes. Learn French and you will probably enjoy it even more.
