24 Hours in Brussels

24 Hours in Brussels

Traveling for business can be tiring and stressful, but sometimes it is good to take a day off and just visit the city where you are doing business.  So here are our recommendations for spending a day in Brussels:

  1. Start the day off right and grab a light breakfast & coffee at Kaffabar.  Or get some Belgium waffles from Peck 47.
  2. If you are into Scuba Diving, head for the world’s deepest indoor non-chlorinated scuba diving pool at Nemo 33 and after working up an appetite exploring the simulated caves, get lunch at their Thai restaurant and watch the other divers.
  3. Some of the best chocolate in the world comes from Belgium and if you are interested in the history check out the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate.
  4. History buffs will like the Royal Palace of Brussels, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium & the Gaasbeek Castle.
  5. A great lookout point to see the city of Brussels can be done from Infantry Memorial of Brussels.
  6. Shopping can be done in many locations check out Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, the Marche Aux Puces de Bruxelles & the De Biertempel.
  7. For dinner enjoy Belgian food in Le BistroLe Chou de Bruxelles or Fin de Siecle.
  8. And what trip wouldn’t be complete without sampling a bit of the local nightlife, try out:
    • Delirium – an experience in and of itself serving 3162 different beers
    • Poechenellekelder – unique decor and an extensive list of Belgian beer
    • Fuse – If you like a good techno club then this is the place for you.

Whatever your taste or whatever your time frame, make sure to experience a little bit of the Brussels city while on your trip, you won’t be disappointed.
