Brussels during Easter?

by InquisitiveTravelers

My husband and I have just discovered that our trip to Europe next year will coincide with Easter. Originally we were going to (unknowingly) fly from London to Rome on Easter; however we are thinking better of that idea and may arrive in Rome the following day to avoid the chaos. We have the option to spend Easter Sunday in Brussels (traveling on Eurostar from London) and want to know how the holiday might affect the city.

Specifically:
Will there be more people?
Will museums, sights, restaurants, etc. be closed or have limited hours?
Will transportation schedules (trains, metro) be affected?

We definitely want to go to Brussels but may choose the day before if Easter will greatly impact our experience there, since we will only have one day.

Any advice or information will be greatly appreciated!

Travel Tips for Brussels

Take a Bus Trip

by adite

If you don't know what are the must-see sites in the city and have just limited time to explore, the best thing to do is to take of the guided bus tours which take you around the city. There is information about the specific sites and their significance. It helps you get the bearings of the city and make the decision on what you would like to spend more time seeing. Besides, it's lovely to just go around and take a quick look of the pretty city that Brussels is.

Brussels Tip

by jtb2inky

Arriving early in the morning with my buddy, making our way to the Grand Place at 9:00 AM and having our first Belgian beer in Belgium. The way I figure, it was still 3:00 AM in the Eastern Time Zone of the United States, and it was last call at the local bar. Okay, its a stretch, but do you really need an excuse to drink a Belgian beer at 9:00 AM when you are on vacation?

lunch

by bakpakchik

I washed up and settled myself in the conservatory. There seemed to be no one around and I got a little upset thinking that everybody would probably be out till late. It was five right now. As I was sitting and
moping, two girls walked in and sat down. Turned out it was their first day in Brussels too and they had just been to the Grand Place and town center and had come back for a bit of a break before setting out for dinner. We sat around for an hour or so exchanging travel stories and life stories and then set out into the city.

The girls had already been around and they showed me the Grand Place, the town center, the covered market and …. Manekken Pis. I was rather disappointed. I thought it would be huge and placed in the center of the square or something, but it was rather tiny - barely three feet high - and tucked into a non-descript corner. After seeing all there was to see, we decided it was time to get some food. We walked into a little alley in the market area where waiters thrust their menus in our face and tried to lure us in with promises of low prices and great food, with a free drink or dessert thrown in. It took us nearly an hour to decide where to eat. After the meal we stopped at a little pub the girls had heard about from one of the guys at the hostel.

Godfried Van Bouillon

by belgianchocolate

'Godefroi of Bouillon' or 'Godfried van Bouillon'
was born in the year 1060 and died in
Jerusalem in 1100.

He was the son of aristocratic parents and
because of his dedication in the army of
Hendrik IV he became feudalist of
'neder-Lotharingen'.

In the year '1096' he decided to take part
of the first crusade to set free Jerusalem.
At that time Jerusalem and Palestina were
under Mohammedan seizure.

'Godfried' brought that mission to a good end
and he was offered the crown of the new
kingdom Jeruzalem.

Again this statue was an Idea by
king 'Leopold II'. The symbolic vallue of
a figure like 'Godfried of Bouillon' symbolized
that Belgium had some powerful
figures in the past. It was fun finding out why a statue of
Godefroi of Bouillon was standing here.
The symbolic value by reading a book
on king 'Leopold II'. (by Lucas Catherine)

The statue is in front of the
'Eglise Sint-Jacques sur Coudenberg
on the 'place royale'

The four seasons

by chicabonita

You find these four statues at one of the entrances to the Jubelpark just opposite of the Arc de Triumph.

The summer statue sympolises the season very good, one can really see how she is sweating ...
