I was wondering if you would happen to know of any nice clubs in Brussels (or near Brussels) where I can go with my significant other where they have good music and good drinks. We want something sophisticated but not too "stiff". We're in our twenties/thirties.
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Next Saturday is our anniversary and we would like to go to a charming restaurant in Brussels (or near Brussels) that is fit for our 1-year anniversary :-)
All suggestions are welcome!
Thank you in advance for helping me make our first anniversary very memorable!
Hello, I'm going to be working in Mechelen for a few months and I decided to find a place in Brussels and take the train everyday to go to work. I have found this place, the European Trainees Residence which is located not too far from the Gare du Nord. I thought it was great, I've seen the pictures and it looks brand new and very comfortable/affordable.
However, I've been going through some reviews about the neighborhood and it doesn't look that great after all.. I have tried to find some reviews of this place but I don't seem to find any.
I've also read that Gare du Nord is an unsafe place to be at any time of the day and night.. This residence is located Rue Traversiere, not too far from Botanique metro station. I've read that the Botanique area is the Turkish ghetto area, to be avoided...
I'd like to know if I should avoid this area and not go to this place.. knowing that I'm a female student...
Thank you in advance!
hello, i intend to visit bruges in january, what is the weather like there ? and what are the best things to do in bruges in 2 days besides taking a trip in the bruges canals? and i want a clean affordable place to stay there for 1 night.. thanks in advance :)
This is a long shot! Last July/August I asked for advice on this site for a suitable stop-over in Belgium. Someone suggested Durbuy and on his recommendation we booked a hotel there. We really, really loved it and had a fabulous few days there. I had never heard of the place before and was so glad to discover it.
I intended thanking the person who made the suggestion but cannot find the post. I can find my post making the request and two replies but not the one suggesting Durbuy. It could have only been this site (Trip Advisor is the only other one I use.)
Anyway, many thanks and - Durbuy is a lovely little town - a chateau, restaurants, pleasant shops, villagy atmosphere, river activities and the hotel we stayed in - Hotel Sanglier Des Ardennes, was great.
Maybe the BeNeLux VT members can help me find an answer to this riddle: As I was touring the Ardenne river valleys last weekend, I was also trying to visit Durbuy. I did manage to enter the village, somewhat bewildered by the many cars that were parking well out of the place already. But then, as soon as I entered Durbuy -- boy, this IS a crowded place! Even though the houses looked very picturesque, I tried to get away from these masses as quickly as I could which proved difficult because there also was a first class traffic jam. What's the matter with this place? What makes it so popular that apparently all of Liege and half of Brussels plus a third of the Netherlands is squeezing into this tiny village???
Are there still summer holidays in Belgium?
definitely coming back, but during less popular times
