A rainy day in Brussels! I learned more in four hours about EU visiting the centre so it is well worth the time going there. There is a lot of effort put down by the EU in this centre, recommended.

To be fair, it's a few office blocks so nothing to shout home about but in my opinion it's the hub of Europe, we read about 'Brussels' every day and it was worth the visit just to see where decisions that affect our lives are made. Apart from a couple of large blocks, lots of smaller offices seem to be... More

The EU Quarter just has a tonne of big buildings and not much else to be honest. The buildings aren't pretty, they're pretty ugly and could have been made to look a lot better seeing as the architect probably knew it would be a tourist attraction in the coming years. When we visited, there was also building work being done... More

Some of the worst examples of modern architecture I have encountered - particularly the building of the EU commission. Not sure this is the best way to spend the taxpayers' money. Dead on the weekends, plenty of construction - but they do have a Carrefour open on the weekends there at the Schumann station.

This area is the home / office of the EU. Most of people think it is boring, but if you have time, you can visit and see how the EU works. The buildings there are huge and very pretty. Highly recommended!

A work place, not worth a visit. There are office buildings all around, expensive small restaurants with bad quality catering the people that work there and have no choice at lunch time. Dead area after 6pm or on weekends.

The EU Quarter best moment to visit is on a Thursday afternoon. Go to Place Luxembourg in front of the European Parliament and see where your tax money goes when all Eurocrats start their weekends. ;) The neighbourhood itself is practically died out on the weekends (Friday through Sunday). There are some beautiful parks with great architecture though. Worth visiting:... More
