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.

    Belgium as I saw it

    I pretty much just went to Brussels to visit a friend and see the European Parliament, so didn't stay there for a whole long time, but one thing I definitely noticed: it is an expensive city. Pretty enough though, worth a visit, but don't disregard the rest of Belgium for it...

    Insider Tip:The very inner city centre is over-filled with tourists and it's expensive.. walk through it once, then go venture further outside. Walk around, discover what Brussels has to offer. The USE-IT (http://www.use-it.travel/home) maps ARE AWESOME. Make sure you pop by the shop and get a free one. Belgium waffles are a MUST.

    Brussels City Review

    I really enjoy Beer. I really enjoy chocolate. I really enjoy Cheese. I really enjoy medieval towns. Therefore, I really had an awesome time in Brussels, Belgium. In retrospect I would have spent more time here and less time in Amsterdam, but then again I don't smoke or partake in prostitution.

    Insider Tip:If you walk to the Cantillon Brewery, make sure you know where you are going because it's annoying to get lost in that area. (Maybe a tad bit sketchy)

    A weekend in Brussells

    Brussels was an amazing city, with friendly people, incredibly relaxed atmosphere and just a generally cool vibe. however if ancient churches and religious relics aren't your thing, it might not be the place for you.

    Insider Tip:Parking lot 58 has a panoramic view of the city- full 360 of the city.

    Brussels

    Not the most attractive city. In the older central part, it is nice but on the outskirts, its comparable to Detroit

    Awesome, but don't stay too long!!

    Brussels is a beautiful city, but doesn't really offer more than 3 days of activities, especially if you take the Sandeman's free tour (which is awesome, as usual). It's an extremely walkable city, despite the hills.

    Insider Tip:Walking down from the Albert plaza, you can find great food at better prices! Ah, frites...
