like...good to visit?
or is it shit? is it good or shit to visit?
Probably wouldn't want to spend more than that there, though.
That said, Belgium generally is good to visit, and quite small, with a comprehensive railway system, so if you're looking for a longer break, you can always travel round to other places in the coutry pretty easily.
It's not particularly cheap, but the beer is good, the people generally fairly friendly, and the architecture interesting.
combine it with Bruges and Antwerp and you've got a long weekend away that dreams are made of
Don't go on a Monday, though. Everywhere's closed.
If you like any of these Brussels is a winner
To drink beer. I have a list of bars but please enlighten me with your recommendations below (also I might pop into Brussels on the way back for a beer or so)...
It's opposite the much busier De Hobbit should you want a convenient one street crawl.
Cambrinus reckons it actually has more beers than Brugs Beertje but I don't know who counted.
De Kelk is good if you don't mind a bit of valk out of the centre.
I certainly don't mind a walk.
not when you're so close to several better cities (Antwerp and Gent spring immediately to mind)
They control this country from their unelected and undemocratic parliament: the EUSSR has ruined Great Britain
I'm there a lot with work, best advice is to get out of the centre a bit though. Really multicultural and some cool cultural stuff (clubs, music, art etc) a bit off the beaten track
