Weekend in Brussels: Top Places to Visit

Belgium, Brussels Guide (B): Weekend in Brussels: Top Places to Visit

This beautiful city located in the middle of the country has a perfect combination between traditional European architecture and culture, and a vibrant nightlife. I must admit that I fell in love with this city at first sight.

The perfect city to walk around and feel immersed in a world that combines past, present and future visuals in the most harmonious way.

Although being a small city, it hosts many wonders from beautiful castles and cathedrals to restaurants and bars passing through amazing public spaces and arts and history museums.

Whether you are planning a trip to Belgium or you are visiting any other near by European country and want to spend a weekend at another city, Brussels is always a great option. It is very easy and convenient to get there; you can get there by bus, train, cars, planes and ferry (Eurolines bus costed me 30 euros for a return ticket from Amsterdam to Brussels).

Probably the most convenient is by train since you can take it from London or Paris and be in the middle of the city in just a few hours. However, if you decide to flight, the airport is very close by and you can take the Diabolo from the SNCB station and be in the center of the city in only 17 minutes. ......
