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.

    Brussels just wasn't for me

    I didn't particularly like Brussels. I didn't feel safe walking around at night and the beggers on the street were very forward in asking you for money. The city center is easy to walk around and the fries and waffles were great and CHEAP! But the rest of the city was very expensive in my opinion. We made the trip out to see the atomium which was really cool. Besides the city center, the rest of the city is a bit spread out and hard to get to. The attractions were pretty, but just not worth it.

    Insider Tip:Check out all of the little shops around the city and in the little narrow streets. Some of them are really cool and those people working the shops were probably the nicest people I met in the city.

    Special Beers

    Brussels is the place to go to have special beers!! Lots of fun to be had while going out. Dress nicely though, otherwise they wouldn't let you in.

    Insider Tip:Go to delirium!!!

    I love this city.

    Although my friends keep telling me Brussels is just a big modern city without too history. I love this city. It was a pity that I stayed there for only one day. The comic art center was cute. And with all the mussels, waffles fries and chocolate, it's one of the most lovable city in my opinion.

    brussels - exceeds in beer but lacks everyhting else

    if you are a budding beer connosieur then brussels is for you, some of the best beer and best bars in europe make a fantastic weekend bar crawl. however, if you are a foodie, party animal, culture vulture, etc etc... then there are much better cities very near by (amsterdam/bruge etc)

    Insider Tip:delerium cafe is just amazing. 3 floors of beer heaven. potentially the best beer bar in the world.

    Overall, the location did not too bad, I also clean inside the facility. However, the height of the first floor of the bed low tall people may be inconvenient. Otherwise, you generally satisfied.
