As my hotel was beyond 300 on Louise Avenue, I hopped on bus 38 to De Bruckere and after its terminal I just had to walk 300 meters to the St. Catherine's Church and nominated place. The weather was lovely with "plein soleil" (full sunshine) last May and the Church presented both its faces: the white cleaned entrance facade and... More

During December and beginning of January, the Place Sainte-Catherine/Sint-Kathelijn sees "Plaisirs d'Hivers/Winterpret". I go there every year. There is an open air skating ring, a Christmas market, usually a touristic exhibition. And of course the permanent attractions of the place: a lot of excellent restaurants, affordable hotels, open air degustation of oysters (not for me), all open until late. I... More

The centre of Brussels is taken over by lots of festive cheer - this year it is 29th November to 5th January. The streets are decorated with zillions of lights, some themed like the signs of the zodiac.The Grand-Place was just beautiful as every half hour the historic buildings were lit up by coloured lighting which seemed to dance to...

Avoid Brussels. It is a filthy ,tired place with empty shops, beggars on the streets, surly waiters, rip- off stalls at the Xmas Market, and, to crown it all, a railway station that defies comprehension.. we stayed two hours and that's about 1he 59 too long. Go to Bruges- safer, cleaner and takes pride in itself. Brussels needs to clean... More

More relaxed than Grand Place this is a lovely location to sit and watch the world go by. Beers by the water are lovely but beware if you have a few Duvells! Plenty of places nearby to eat and sample the local delicacies and of course frites and mussels with mayo!

The plazas in Brussels are well used and this is no exception. The fountains, churches and other interesting buildings make it a nice place to see, but at night the many restaurants make the choice of places to eat difficult. But then again,we never ate badly while in Brussels, so maybe the choices aren't really that tough!

Place Ste. Catherine has many restaurants and one can easily walk to the church. However the church is undergoing renovation and the inside cannot be seen now. The front part of the church has already been cleaned.

I've stayed in the St. Catherine district when visiting in Brussels several times now. I like the fact that it's on a Metro line, although it's only a short walk to Grand Place. There are several small hotels and B&B's nearby that make it relatively affordable for a tighter budget. Of course there's a large selection of excellent fish/seafood restaurants... More
