Tomorrow is Easter Monday and I was wondering what to do in Brussels. Everything seems to be closed (museums, shops, etc.). Are there any nice events happening in the city? A friend is visiting from out of town and we want to find an activity to pass the day.
Thanks in advance!
Would like to plan 3 days of "bicycle loop" trips from Brugge to the countryside and return.. with each trip being around 40 to 60 KM. I found a great route planning tool on the web but its all in flemish. Happy to pay somone to help me "map out the routes" but would prefer not to be in an organized tour per se. Suggestions welcome!!!

I am visiting Bastogne from Canada. I would be coming via Paris. It looks like there is a train to Luxembourg, and then a bus to Bastogne. Is this correct and the best way to go about it or are there other options? From Bastogne I am going to Lille, France. Any suggestions? I would happily take accommodation recommendations as well. Thank you.

I have a friend from Italy coming over to Belgium, She will move to Mechelen from August to December for a traineeship.
She will have to search for a room: do you have any suggestion on how to find a low-cost accommodation in your city (e.g. useful websites, which are the most suitable areas of the city to find cheap rooms, if you have any information on families available for a sort of "aupair" exchange,...).

Hi, I am a travel agent and visiting Bruges as part of a cruise with 17 friends for a 'laid back' hen weekend. Our cruise stops at Zeebrugge on Sunday 11th May and we're going into Bruges for the day. I've been before a few years back but wasn't there on a Sunday... and I'm struggling to find a restaurant open on a Sunday in Bruges!! We don't mind the type of cuisine & price isn't important as we want something nice, but we would like something with outdoor seating so that (weather permitting!) we can dine outside. Preferably central and in a busy area so we can people watch :) but this isnt essential!
Also while I'm here if anyone can point me in the right direction of a company we can use for a private canal boat trip for 18 that would also be great.
Thank you in advance!
I have a few questions.
1) Is the tour guided?
2) Can a person who does not speak French enjoy the visit?
3)Would a nine year old enjoy this?
4) Is the Fort de Loncin a good place to visit?
I was wondering if someone with experience traveling from brussels could help us with planning the itinerary of our trip?
My husband and I are arriving in Brussels on April 11 and have a about a week in Europe (we fly out of brussels on April 20) This is the first time in many years that our work trips have left us with free time after so we really want to take advantage of our extra week :)
We would like to visit Bruges, Ghent, Paris and Amsterdam in a week. I'm trying to figure out which are the best ways/dates to route the Thalys train schedule so we can spend less time traveling but still trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible.
I was thinking of staying in brussels on 4/12 ( we have both been here a lot for work and don't want to tour the city again), do a day trip to Ghent and Bruges on 4/13 (anyone have good recommendations on whether to take train/bus/guided tour company?), leave brussels for Paris on 4/14, take train from Paris to Amsterdam on 4/16 and take train from Amsterdam back to brussels on 4/19.
The alternative would be doing brussels-Paris-Amsterdam-brussels-Bruges/Ghent-brussels. Or brussels-Amsterdam-Paris-brussels-Bruges/Ghent-brussels.
Any and all advice on which routes to take, which train/bus/your companies to use would be very much appreciated. Also, do we need to rent a car at any point, because we would really prefer not to.
Thank you all in advance!
love to ride bike from doubletree hilton to bastogone if possible bttle of bulge buff what advice
What kind of transportation is there between Ieper and Brugge and where do I get the schedules.
I have lived in nine countries, so please, don't argue me this: don't you ever go to restaurants either in France or in Brussels unless you like to be laughed and stolen at. It is in their mentality to be dishonest and rip people blatantly off. They are malicious by nature, they represent the hardcore of the greedy dishonest money-grabber hand palms rubber coin-counter.
They dont serve or cook having in mind delivering a good service to let you satisfied, nothing of the sort. They calculate every bit on how to rip you off. They will write culinary rhetoric in their menus, but you will find yourself with 80% of your plate stuffed with raw dry lettuce and raw mushrooms, and then a slice of meat most of which is all bone, and they will call that roast beef texas style and size accompanied by rich garniture à la brusselesse etc etc,
Today I was in Brussels and I left 3 restaurants without eating after scanning the menus. I found the prices blatantly insulting and I let know the waiter on leaving. I had the money, but I refused to feed the pockets of a dishonest practice. Besides, they will only let you pay with cards if you spend more than 20 Euros, which is bastardly insulting again. Anything about 1 Euro is accepted everywhere.
While I am very much against fast food crap restaurants, if you are in France, you are better off in some filthy McDonalds than in any standard restaurant. Believe me, it is a matter of protecting your dignity from being insulted.
If you go to Spain, that is the place I can recommend you to stop by restaurants. They will serve 3 full plates, because that is the way it is eaten in Spain. A first large dish which can be anything from paella, to cooked beans with ham chorizo, or pasta dish, you name it, then second dish will be a filet of meat or fish so large that it will go out of your plate, the third will be any dessert you can think of plus you get for free all the bread you want, all the water you want and one pint of wine, all that will cost you around 10 Euros.
In Belgium or in France that would be about 60 euros.
If it is about restaurants (and mostly hotels too), avoid the French people and their cousins the Belgians. Other countries in Europe like England or Germany they are more decent, they have some values and they care about providing good service. It will not be as cheap as in Spain, but they will be as honest as possible.
I am a tourist guide by the way. I know what I am talking about. 20 years in the profession
But the best advice, eat at home, and invite your friends home, it is healthier, cheaper and you make better friends.

Are there archery clubs or commercial facilities in Belgium offering hire equipment plus range to visitors? I'd love to pull a bow during visit there later in the year but would not wish to carry equipment with me. Thank, in anticipation, de p.
Hi, my friend goes to Antwerp this weekend. She is looking for a nice, bit more upscale, fine dining romantic restaurant to celebrate that she and her husband are 15 years together.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
