9 hours in Brussels

by nyceagle1633

I have 7 hours in Brussels. I arrive to Brussels airport at 8 AM and leave at 6 PM. So, I figure, get on a train at 9 AM and be back at 4 PM to board my plane to Helsinki.

What train do I take to get to City Center of Brussels. Please give best tips of train line I take and where do I stop. And what can I do and see for these 7 enjoyable hours. Help VTers.

You can take a bus into the city, level O one floor down from the arrivals hall. You will find line 471 or 659. thirty minute service from platform C cost 3euros

Airport train station below the terminal basement level 1, four trains per hour to Brussels North, Brussels Central and Brussels Midi.

Been a decade since I was there, but just walking around checking out the city architecture, the main square, manniqun pis, is all fun.
Also, the Cantillon Gueze Brewery is worth a visit. Have a Rose Gambinus for me.

Try to visit the Musical Instruments Museum, if you have the time. Other than that, there's the usual sights: Grand Place, Manneken Pis and Jeanneken Pis, the Comic Strip Center, beer tasting, chocolate demonstrations (I recommend Planète Chocolat).

Indeed, take the train (not the bus as it'll take too much time and you don't have much of that) and get off the train at CENTRAL STATION. From there it's a short stroll to the places mentioned above : Grand Place, Rue du Boucher (street with many reastaurants, can be big fun), la Bourse etc etc. You have in total about 4 hours to spend and tht should more or less cover it...

Enjoy !

Travel Tips for Brussels

Home of the strip cartoon

by sourbugger

Belgium, and specifically Brussells is home to many stripcartoon writers.

Perhaps the most famous is Tintin, although the Smurfs and Asterix both have Belgian origins.

There are several shops which cater for people looking for books of cartoons and other spin-off products. We came across an excellent Tintin shop : their website is

www.forbiddenzone.net

Other shops can be found via the time-out website :

www.timeout.com/brussels/shop.xml?ar=1&cg=1

The shop even had full sized space suits for sale with the main characters inside.

There is also a "Stripmuseum", which in any other city might have other connotations : but here it refers only to the graphic art.

Grote Markt. King's House

by bugulma

First construction on the place was in XIII century from wood. In 1405 stone building appeared. In 1515-1536 during Charles V times the house was rebnovated in Gothic style. In 1860-1887 it was the great restoration and the building became the property of the city government as well as it is city museum nowadays.

sampling Cantillon's lambic

by richiecdisc

Though I went back to Belgium as part of a larger trip four years later I somehow never made it to Brussels again. I made a base in medieval Ghent and explored Bruges and Antwerp in more detail. Brussels just didn’t fit in. So it was with great anticipation that I was to return to this fair city with my new wife on my most recent trip to Belgium. It would unfortunately be for only one day on our way back to Germany but I’d get some reaffirmation of my initial pleasant surprise and she would get a glimpse however small of its wonders.

Many plans were made for this all too short day and when our connection from Ghent ran late it became readily apparent that a mere fraction of them would be realized. Factor in the dismal cold weather and the winter sundown hour at that latitude of about four in the afternoon and you can imagine how the word tease came into existence. After securing our room it was already lunchtime so off we set for Spinnekopke, where beer and beer infused cuisine meet head on and splendidly. Both were great but perhaps too long and drawn out a choice with so little time at our disposal. Since the great Cantillon Brewery was in the neighborhood we decided to make our way there before heading to the center of the city. Though not a big fan of brewery tours or even visits per se, this brewer of lambic is quite special and even Doreen was intrigued. That they are amongst our favorite beers in Belgium should be taken into consideration too. The small tour was well timed as we were there when the early incarnation of the nectar came flooding into the open fermenters that define true brewing. Sampling some of the wares with head brewer Jean VAN ROY, one of the great giants in Belgian brewing was only the icing on an already formidable cake. (continued below in Fondest Memory)

Murales

by Norali

Visiting the center of Brussels, especially the part from Manneken pis, then through the Marolles allows you to spot here and there some of the murales of Bruxelles.

Mostly inspired by comic strips characters, they are, in fact, reproductions of those characters. Drawers apply for authorization from authors of those comic strips to reproduce the drawings on the scale of walls...

To see some murales in Brussels, click here. This one is not inspired by comic strips, it is rather drawn to create a trompe-l'oeil effect. It is in Rue de l'épée, the one that is perpendicular to Rue Haute when you are at the foot of the lift at Poelaert place.

Smallest house of Brussels

by irisbe

At rue du Marché aux Fromages/Kaasmarkt 19 (thank you Norali & Gini), you will find Brussels’s smallest house.
It got into the media some years ago when it was for sale.
I had been looking out for it ever since but never realised it was in this popular “pita” street.
