Brussels is not your 5 to 7 day city vacation spot, but it's worth a weekend getaway or a one day pit stop via rail to embrace Belgian culture. This city has many cultural offerings in the forms of palaces, parks, architecture, restaurants, flavorful chocolate, and tasteful beer.

The Capitol of Europe, Brussels doesn't have quite the pull of some of Europe's other nearby capitols like Paris, London, and Amsterdam, but it is still a great city with plenty of fun things to see. Oh yeah and forget what people say about German beer, the best beer in the world is Belgian.

I need to come back again when I have some more time. My one night in Brussels was lovely. After an epic taxi ride from the airport to the hotel ( 1 and a half hours for the 15 km ride ! ), I walked into the centre and found an amazing range of cafes, restaurants, bars and al-fresco dining. I sat down at a cafe, ordered some food and a beer and watched the world go by.
The centre is well pedestrianised and could keep me busy for a week exploring the little lanes and roads.
It was clean, felt safe and as I said, I want to head back again !

Brussels is a great town that's a quick trip from Paris on the train. There's lots of great history and architecture. It's also the administrative capital of the EU. I'd love to spend more time here.

I traveled to Brussels on my own, felt very safe here, and took the train to Bruges for the day, and to Grimbergen. The Beer in Belgium is reason enough to go, but the the Grand Place is gorgeous, and the Atomium is fun. The EU headquarters are here, and the oldest (?) shopping mall - The Galleries Lafayette. Oh and don't forget the chocolate!
