The lady and I are going for a couple of days in early January. Hot tips and things to do please.
Go to the Brel Institute and buy me souvenirs.
There is a decent flea market to my memory.
I've been about 10 times - just drink really in some of the odd bars - there's one near the main square which has coffins for tables and another with sinister looking puppets hanging from the ceiling - avoid the area next to the station as its a bit aggro. Oh and don't forget the BRel museum COLin
that was once a brothel Le Goupil de Fol (I think) and they serve really strong fruit wine and close when they feel like it - its all velvet curtains and old sofas and a jukebox rammed with Brel, Hardy, Vannier, you name it. Fantastic.
I even had my stag weekend in Brussels - I got freaked out by the Coffin Bar though
don't worry, that's very high on the list.
i think. sadly we didn't go to homo erectus :(
in Anderlecht. I might waive that option
it is very funny:
-Go to the oldest bar in towm, I remember not its name.
-Botanique, if there's a good gig on.
-Actor's Studio or Arenberg cinemas.
-If you like Chess, go to Le Greenwich bar, it is damn cool.
Go to all of these and you will enjoy yourself. The atomium is quite ugly up close, much nicer from further afield. Feel free to PM for any further information or anything.
and get your tectonick on!
