Going to Bruxelles, need help.

Postby IHateUsernames » Mon Oct 13, 2003 2:26 pm

Im going to Bruxelles, this friday and coming home monday.

But I cant speak french, and I dont know what to see.

So, I ask you, what is the greatest sights in Bruxelles?

And the most used french sentences and signs. Just the basic.

Don't worry about your French, Ihateusernames, almost everybody in Belgium speaks English, and definitely in Brussels.

I haven't been to Brussels for many years, but the Market place, which is the main town square, is a must see. It is famous for it's beautiful architecture. In general, architecture is the main feature of Brussels, you have everything from guild halls and cathedrals from the Middle ages, to the purest Art Deco. Apart from that, I suppose you should eat chips (French fries) and clams :D And choclate, of course!

Finally, I'm back. I had a great trip and it was more fun than I thought it would be.

I never got around to the museums, but I'll survive.

Glad to hear you'll survive. ;) So what did you see?

Where should I start?

We saw Grand Place and the beautiful architecture there. And we saw the Toy Museum (my little sister and her friend wanted to see it, so I tagged along. Quite a nice place and worth a visit)

And we saw the only place in the world that are allowed to brew lambic. Terible beer IMO. The only reason they are still allowed to brew beer there are that they have a EU something. The hyigene there is terible.

And, of course, we had clams.

And we saw the Atomium. I cant believe they charge people for seeing that.

The rest of the time was spent looking at architecture and shopping, and some museums I have forgotten.
