A beautiful square and some impressive architecture if you are visiting Brussels. On one side is the City Hall and opposite is the City Museum. There are plenty of cafes for a meal or just a traditional beer Still, it's stunning and no one who...More
This is a beautiful place at any time of year, but in December with the large Christmas tree it is amazing. There was a lights and music show in the evening. The Christmas market was in the streets all around the Grand Place, making for...More
Still one of the best and nicest place in Europe to visit especially around Xmas time. Lots of things to do , shops in the street etc.. Night time is nicer than day time due to lights. Watch pick pocket and be viligeant.

Seeing Brussels in two days isn’t going to be difficult. The Christmas market stalls take up two parts of the downtown area. Firstly around Bourse and leading up to Saint-Catherine. You’ll have time to do all these markets.
As for other things to do. Head up to the top of Mont-des-Art for the best view of Brussels, make sure you catch the light show around Grand Place and the museums near the Palace.
If you’re looking for something different then walk from Grand Sablon down Rue Haute where you’ll find great independent shops and antiques.
Two art galleries I can recommend are Mima and the newly opened Kanal, both very interesting g and within walking distance of each other.

Hi @roadman175! Tube. I advice you. I never used other public transports in Bruxelles. It’s not a huge city it’s a medium European Capital. Just tube and walking (not too much). The main touristic attractions are in centre and about Atomium there is tube stop. It’s really easy getting around it! You can find at Grand Place the main tourism office. If you wish you can also purchase a tourism city pass for 24-48-72 h or more (free public transports more shops and museum discount). Have fun in Bruxelles! Bye!

There are many trains from Brussels Airport to your destination via Brussels Central. If you are staying in centre, there are three big main stations with trains to all destination. Gare Nord, Central & Gare Midi. Enjoy your trip as Brussels is lovely especially if the sunshine!
I have to take some print outs of Thalys / other bookings. Are there any Internet Cafés with printing facilities near the Grand Place ? Thanks !

Brussels for 1 day; Eurostar queries, Metro and Mini Europe. (2 Replies)
Hi there, I am going to Bruges in June and has booked a ticket to Brussels with the understanding that my train ticket from Eurostar allows me to go to any Belgian station from Brussels Midi within 24 hours of the validity of the ticket. My train arrives in Brussels Midi at 2.03pm on the 15th June 09. My question is, 1. Am I right to say that I have to leave from Brussels Midi before 2.03pm on 16th June (the next day)to Bruges for the ticket to still be valid? ...More

Hey Qaminari Thank you very much. Your advise is the most informative one I've received from several website. I will research according to the information given. Regarding the part about locals not knowing the route, I just read it from reviews of the hostel I was going to book. A tourist explain that she has asked a receptionist who is a local at a certain shops for direction to this hostel and the receptionist doesn't know. I also read a few other reviews which said the same...More

Trip ro Belgium - Brugges or Brussels? (6 Replies)
**Bruges Hello. Im planning a 4 day holiday vacation to Belgium and I'm wondering if I should stay in Bruges or Brussels? I found a hotel in Brussels - opposite Bruxelles-Midi / Brussel-Zuid (Eurostar) station but alot of people are saying that it's safer to stay near Grand Place? This is my first holiday alone and I plan to visit both cities. Many thanks.

It's not so much safer as a great deal more pleasant (and convenient for sightseeing), and in any case, your Eurostar ticket covers you on a connecting train from Midi to Gare centrale, which is 5 mins walk from the Grand' Place. If the hotel you found opposite Gare du Midi is the Ibis Gare du Midi, there is another Ibis ("Off Grand' Place") about 1 minute's walk from Gare centrale, after the Méridien and Novotel.
