Trip Type:
City break

Customer Travel Tip: Only buy the "Brussels card" if you are going to a lot of the places that you get free entry to, in a lot of the places I went to, people had not heard of it before. Also, in some museums they say you have free entry only for a few of the exhibitions and ask you to pay which isn't fair.

Liked: Great architecture and the shop windows are beautiful, many places to have a seat and eat something too

Disliked: Passport control when you come to Brussels is ridiculously slow, I lost my transfer to the hostel after waiting for over an hour in border control. Things open late and close early (10-18). Transit maps are confusing and never include all modes of transportation. Some tram stops are shown as one on the map but are a few minutes away although they have the same name! (Trying to get the tram line 7 at Princesse Elizabeth after getting off the 92 - supposedly both stop at Princesse Elizabeth - and it never showed up)

Customer Travel Tip: Dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear.

Liked: Beautiful market square Yummy chocolates

Disliked: The waffles were disappointing. Having to pay for tap water and to use the bathroom is ridiculous. Water should ALWAYS be free (like it is in Canada) :) I was charge 5 euros for a bottle of water at a restaurant my first night in Brussels. :(
