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 City Reviews

    Love, love, loved Brussels. Such a cool city. We went for a weekend which was definitely a good amount of time to see and enjoy everything. I'm a huge Audrey Hepburn fan and this was where she was born, so it was definitely on my list.

    Insider Tip:The Cheesecake factory was a great place to eat. Reasonable prices and delicious food. The Delerium Cafe was also a must-go.

    Very beautiful old town, the main square is really impressive, a lot of options to eat and drink good beers.

    Insider Tip:Go to the Delirium Cafe, we went there two nights and enjoyed a lot :)

    Lovely underrated city

    I really enjoyed Brussels! We took a 2.5 hour walking tour and the guide was obviously in love with the city, and it rubbed off on us. The city of chocolate, beer, and comic books could not be a bad thing. The architecture is beautiful, the food is good (waffles!), the people are nice and diverse.

    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.

    Insider Tip:Go to delirium!!!
