We spent quite a bit of time here, and learned a lot about the history of Brussels. Very quiet- I think we were actually the only tourists here so we had the place to ourselves. Get the audio guide- it is free and you will...More
The Halle Gate was my first port of call on our recent long weekend in Brussels/Antwerp.This is an absolutely, amazing tourist attraction and I would have to rate as one of the best things I have seen in my long weekend to Belgium.The Halle Gate...More
If you like cool old towers that use to be gates to the city, then this Porte de Hal is for you. If you don't speak or read French you might want to get the audio guide since everything else is only written in French.
Being the only remaining gate of the second surrounding wall of Brussels this is a must see. The gate is almost 600 years old and survived Emperor Joseph 2 order to demolish all gates because at the time it served as a prison. Same when...More
We visited the Halle Gate (‘Porte de Hal’ in French) on a freezing Sunday in March and thoroughly enjoyed it. This 14th gate is the sole remnant of the second circle of medieval city walls around Brussels. Its present picturesque appearance is not medieval though....More
Would’ve gotten a lot more out of it if the signage was also available in English. The English audio device helped but I think it only captures about half of what the signage available only in in French and Dutch does. Still it is worth...More
Some interesting stuff to see. It isn’t a big collection, but they have a few cool items. Very few, if any, English information plaques; but if you can read French, no probs. You can go right to the top — nice view. Worth 7 euros?...More
2 hours and felt like it was sufficient time to see everything

Porte De Hal/Hallepoort to Brussels Airport (6 Replies)
I was wondering what is the most economical way to get from Porte De Hal/Hallepoort to Brussels Airport. I see that STIB runs bus 12 and 21 to the airport but which is stop is closer to Porte De Hal/Hallepoort? What about De Lijn bus and the train, which station should I hop on for each and how to get to that station from Porte de Hal/Hallepoort? How much does the ticket cost for the bus and train? Thanks a lot.

< Total cost would therefore be €2 + €3.50 > No. Airport bus ticket is also valid on other buses/trams/metro. If you buy an Airport ticket at the start of the journey (e.g. at Hallepoort metro station), you could use it on the metro to Schuman and then on the airport bus 12 - total cost €3.50.
