about 22 hours in brussels. suggestions to add to my plan

Jump to last reply

Will arrive in morning via brugge to brussels for slightly less than 24 hours; then back to the USA. My wife likes a general overview first; so plan would be the 10AM city tour bus that goes around for about 2-2 1/2 hours. At 2:30PM I hear there is a fantastic walking tour that runs between 2-3 hours. Would be interested in the Comic book museum (if still open when we finish); maybe some type of lunch or snack between these two tours. I am sure my wife would be curious regarding galeries st. hubert and seeing some chocalate stores. Would have some time in evening possibly to do something if it does not take too much effort. Not too interested in this gourmet walking tour; if already took a short boat ride in Brugge unsure the evening waterway cruise would be attractive since it goes through indurstrial areas. Possibilities:? This Tram Gourmet dinner? Or just one of the trams that goes thru the most stunning, picturesque areas? Still curious about this tram dinner-but do they go thruugh sites to see? I think not. I also know there is a crime problem in this city, so interested in a low profile. Suggestions/ideas. thank you.

    It already sounds like you have your day filled. I confess I don't know anything about the tours you mention (I googled the tram dinner - I guess it sounds like fun, but maybe you'd be better off going for an ordinary restaurant which just concentrates on food, as I don't think you'd see much at night. Just my 2 cents....). As for the crime problem, it's no worse than Paris. Two things I would say is a) there are a few areas I find a little bit seedy, and b) Bruxelles-Midi station seems to have a fair share of pickpockets or people prepared to steal luggage. Just be vigilant, even on board the train, but of course that applies everywhere you travel. As for the areas to avoid, these are not downright dangerous areas to avoid at all costs, just a little down-at-heel. I don't like the area around Bruxelles-Nord station, Rogier or Bourse, although if you are going to Place-St-Gery (bars / cafes, nightspots) or St-Catherine (seafood restaurants) you may need to pass through the latter. Many people dislike the area around Bruxelles-Midi too, which I don't mind quite so much. If you visit the Sunday morning markets near Midi it's not uncomfortable at all, there are so many people.
