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

    Brussels is Great. Taste all the beer and chocolate.

    Brussels is bustling, even in the off season. It is very tourist oriented, but not so much that is distracts from the beautiful architecture and history.

    Insider Tip:For dinner, try to avoid the touristy strip of restaurants. You'll know it when you see it. Ask a local for a recommendation.

    Don't only go to Brussels

    When visiting Belgium, don't only stop by Brussels. Flanders and Wallonie has so much to offer! Make sure to grab the Use-it map, it's amazing! Also, visit the European Parliament. It's free, interactive, and really, really informative/interesting! Plus, it's free.

    Half love half hate

    The only city made me so mad and so in love with. I was cheated hundreds of euros and wet by the heavy rain here, I was also met with so many fantastic museums and chocolate and waffle and one of my friends who lend me emergent money here.

    Insider Tip:Be careful! If someone asks you to dismantle money for him to park the car, you can just step up and punch him on the face. He is a cheater.

    Brussels, the city of many

    Go walk around the city. Do not take the metro, it is very small. Check out not only the old city centre, but the area with the EU buildings as well.

    Insider Tip:Go up the parking lot.

    Great food, very artsy and beautiful city, not too touristy, not too much to do in comparison to other cities, but a nice city to walk around and eat.

    Insider Tip:If travelling alone and don't want to eat in a restaurant, just stick to eating waffles, fries, and kebap stores. You will not be disappointed.
