      Does anyone know where to buy apple tea, like they have in Turkey, especially the granule type? All the 'epiciers' in the city seem to have now become Indian, who don't sell this. I have been looking for some months fruitlessly.

    • Limited mobility

      Brussels Yesterday

      I am going to be in Brussels for 5 days with my husband. He is not disabled but he is 86 years old. He can get about OK but is quite slow and we don't want to be walking vast distances or negotiating lots of steps. We are well-travelled and like museums, art, history, music. Any tips about getting around in Brussels? Also any advice about what to avoid.

    • Bastogne - Best way to go and cheap good accommodation

      Bastogne Jul 3, 2014 at 6:53 PM

      Hello, i am from Portugal and I will be visiting Bastogne next year. As i have family in Antweerp and i will make a visit, i would be coming from there. So, there is any train from Antweerp to Bastogne? Or i need to go by train to Brussels and then catch a bus to Bastogne as i read on the net? For this last option i will loose almost day to get there and i really want to avoid it. Well, i know that i will need to rent a car with GPS to discover the region. So what do you recommend, where i can rent a car with low cost prices? It's better in Antweerp or more close like Brussels.? I wish to find the best way, fast and cheap to get there. Or are there other options? From Bastogne i want to discover the region, www2 places and museums: Poteau, Malmedy, La Gleize, Grandmenil, La Roche en Ardenne, Houffalize, Foy, Bois Jaques and maybe, maybe Dinant, Celles and Florennes. Without this last 3 places that i know are a little far from Bastogne, do you think 2 days is enough? I want to stay in Bastogne, visit the region and back to Bastogne to sleep and when finish all, back to family in Antweerp again. Any suggestions? I would like accommodation recommendations as well. Good but cheap. Thank you.

      As an airline employee with only a 54 hour layover in Brussels, I need to ask the best route to get to see the places my Father talked about so much when he was fighting with the 101st Airborne Division. I cannot determine train schedules and ask all those with information to give me your best suggestions to use the one full day I have in the best way. Also welcome any suggestions re seeing Brussels and maybe Ghent.

      Is it ok to rent a car in Belgium?

      Belgium Jul 7, 2014 at 6:03 PM

      After an exhausting walking trip in London and Paris -- most especially .... We have decided to rent a car in Belgium and we plan to use it as a day trip outside of Belgium. Is it easy to rent a car in Belgium ? I figured it's a left hand drive just like what we have in the US and they drive on the left side too so it should be fairly easy. I hope my assumption is correct. Also any car rental agencies you can recommend which is cheap? Thanks!

      Overnight stay in Brugge

      by rlg2706 Online Now Feb 3, 2012 at 11:07 AM

      I am travelling to Belgium to stay with friends in the west of the country in the summer. I am considering having an overnight stay in Brugge on the way there, partly to break the journey and also because it is a place that I have always wanted to visit. I will have my 3 children with me aged 14, 11 and 9 and wonder what Brugge has to interest them. I am very easily pleased but my children less so and I do not want cries of "I'm bored" throughout our time there! If Brugge is not a place for kids of that age, I may be better to carry on to our destination. Any advice greatly appreciated.....

      The English version isn´t working. Did I understand right, that this is open every day? Is there English tours every day? Should the tour be booked?
      When is the latest tour? I´m not even sure, if this all is told at the page..

      Night-time at Brugge?

      by Turska Online Now Apr 6, 2010 at 1:27 PM

      We are going to Brugge by car in the summer.We were planning to be over night,but now we have started to think,that maybe we could go to Gent for night.Hotels are more expensive at Brugge,and I started to wonder,is there anything special at night-time?I noticed that there is no night-life-tips at VT at all.
      I don´t mean nightclubs or anything"wild",but would we miss anything,if we would come in the morning,and leave before dark?
      Sometimes we have been n very lovely and romantic town a day (like Rothenburg ob der Tauber) and when we like to go eat late at night,there has been only 2-3 restaurants open,and whole town so quiet,that it would have been the same if we would have slept at another town.

      Boat Hire In Brugge

      We are going to be in Brugge over New Year. We would like to see the city and surroundings by canal, however I hear the boat trips do not run in Dec/Jan.

      Can anyone tell me if it is possible to hire a small boat? I am a professional Boatmaster and RYA Inland Waterways Instructor, so I am well qualified to handle small craft on canals.

      All the best

      by bagrat712 Online Now Jul 13, 2008 at 11:43 AM

      During a recent visit to Brugge we visited the Jerusalem Church. Off the main area is a small room of worship where there is a cross covered by a grille. Within the cross there is a glass panel - does anyone know what is within this panel? Also, up the stairs to the alter, again there are glass panels, this time on the alter. These glass panels have something behind them, does anyone know what these items are? We were unable to get close enough to have a proper look. The guide books and web sites don't seem to give any information.

    • Name of adorable restaurant in Brugge run by Natalie?

      by kellelyn Online Now Jan 12, 2008 at 7:03 AM

      Hello. I know that this is a long-shot, but I'm trying to recall the name of a restaurant in Brugge run by a lovely young woman. I think her name might have been Natalie? We visited on a very cold day in November, and I think that my brain was too frozen to remember the name. The tables had a book containing a story about how the restaurant opened. It was very small. The menu was simple, omelettes, salads, coffee, soup. Specials were written on little chalk-boards at each table. The coffee area and cash register were at the entrance. The walls were exposed brick. It was down a little side street. I've spent way too many hours looking for the name. My now-fiance proposed the same day that we visited this restaurant! Any suggestions by locals or those who visited would be greatly appreciated. I want the name so that I can return on our anniversary next year! Thanks so much!
