Etterbeek Things to Do

  • Head to Maison Antoine for the best...

    Yes, experiencing the fries at Maison Antoine is an activity that one has to do in Brussels.The place is renowned in the whole Brussels for its non deep-freezed fries. Potatoes are peeled in there and fried for the day.It's a simple fritkot we have here. Yet, you find there locals from the whole Brussels longing for those Maison Antoine fries, EU...

  • Parc du cinquantenaire - Jubelpark &...

    Discover the park with its arches and museums. I read that King Leopold II had it fit out in 1880 by Gedeon Bordiau for a special purpose: Jubilee celebration of Belgium. The concern was then to liaise Brussels center to Tervueren countryside. In fact, Avenue de Tervueren-laan starts there and leads to cosy Tervueren area. Besides, nowadays, an...

Etterbeek Restaurants

  • Gourmets French cuisine !

    Well-located restaurant. Great layout. Orange-salmon walls just give a pinch of warmth... But with an open grill, it can't be different. Seats are comfortable.Really good food: fresh ingredients and an half -Italian-half-Argentinian chef who cooks French, Italian cuisine as well as grill dishes.I appreciate there ingredients quality. Yesterday June...

  • Go there for the food, not the setting. ...

    One thing is sure, don't go there for the setting. Rather clean but with some kitschy and amazing decorations. Three aquariums, quite common in Asian restaurants. Some animated waterfalls paintings. An animated buddha painting. It was fun going there. Yet, the personnel was rather nice so you are not tempted to laugh at the deco. Service is OK too....

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Etterbeek Shopping

  • Italian shoes in Rue des Tongres

    Brussels has international brands' boutiques. See them on Rue neuve with City2 mall and Inno department store (downtown). For more sophisticated and pricey clothing, rather go to Bd de Waterloo, Av. de la Toison d'or and Av. Louise. Those streets are located in same uptown area (Metro station: Porte de Namur, Louise). *My favourite places for a...

  • Fancy ice cream after walks and shopping...

    A must-do after sticky hot summer walks and shopping sprees: discover homemade Belgian speculoos ice-cream. Instead of sitting at the nearest Haagen-Dazs to refresh yourself, head to a Belgian (sometimes Italian-run) ice-cream parlour. I know some good of them, all located off the "tourist-trap" areas. The nearest I know is Aux Délices de Capoue....

Etterbeek Off The Beaten Path

  • Enjoying an evening in the Roseland -...

    The Albert Hall is a wonderful ballroom situated in the heart of Etterbeek in the neighborhood called "La Chasse". For the ones who have the chance to go to a ball or evening there, don't hesitate : it is a wonderful place! This big building is Art déco, created by the architect Meuleman in 1932. Il est composé de deux salles qui se superposent :...

  • View from top of the arches

    It is possible to visit the top of the arches in Jubelpark / 50aire. We did it during the Brussels meeting on Nov.30.This grants you with a nice view on the center of Brussels and the South. From far, you would see most of Brussels landmarks too. Plus, it is free. Entry is in Army and Military history museum. Enter the museum and it's at your left....

Etterbeek General

  • My Etterb?que

    This is rather funny. When I arrived in Brussels, I pronounced words ? la fran?aise. For that reason, I kept on saying "Etterb?que" instead of Etterbeek. Probably, you have to be francophone to seize the nuance in that. Anyway, I had some little embarrassement pronouncing such way but hey, I was a newcomer. That was when I went to this school, for...

  • Another type of murale

    Another type of murale.. just to remind you of the importance of Brussels as home of EU institutions.It is located accross the Leopold Park, the one next to the European parliament ("Les caprices des Dieux"). Both places are located in the EU Institutions area. Take the metro to Schuman station, where you step down. Then, go upstairs, you should...

  • EC area... a place to visit?

    Hmmm... To be honest, I never thought of the EU area as a place to visit. It took me a VTmeeting, in Brussels, on Nov.10 to really visit it as a tourist would have done. Yet, in my previous job, I used to pass nearby those buildings to join my place from work... Parc 50aire in nearby was far more interesting for me.Step down at Schuman metro...
