Trip Type:
City break Events / festivals Shopping Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Try to enjoy the atmosphere itself and not try to visit as many different places in it as possible. Chill in some square or go try the aqua park. That represents the special atmosphere of Brussels.

Liked: The atmosphere of old cultural buildings and squares is relaxing and refreshing. The food was really nice too especially waffles.

Disliked: During our stay some places were closed due to reconstructing/fixing the buildings. We couldn't find such information anywhere before we actually reached these places.

Customer Travel Tip: If you can afford it, The Brussels Journey chocolate/beer tour was a fantastic start to my trip, and Marie was an excellent guide.

Liked: Beautiful - very picturesque.

Disliked: I only had a limited time so I stayed in the city, and thought at lot of things were overpriced (obviously that was due the location). If I had more time to explore I might not have felt that way as I would have ventured out further.
