Brussels, Belgium Master Thread
« on: July 18, 2011, 09:28:51 PM »
We have a stopover in Brussels next week from 8am-7pm. What is there good to see, do, kosher places to eat and daven? How far from the airport to city? How do you get there?
We are a young couple with a 7 month old baby. Thanks!

I assume you leave your luggage checked in, and just have your hand luggage/stroller with you.

At the arrivals, instead of walking straight out of the airport, go right (your 2 o'clock, not extreme right), and take the elevator to the bottom floor.
You buy there a train ticket to Brussels central station.
You take a short ride to brussels north, where you switch train to brussels central.

Kosher restaurants in brussels are: Balthasar, Da Bruno.

Check online for their opening times.

You might want to consider seeing antwerp or brughes or ghent.

Thank you so much for your ideas.. Are the restaurants expensive? Also where can we change dollars for euros to purchase train tickets?
You would give us a guided tour for free in brussels??

@moish: how come I didn't know you were in BRU

@cr123: I added a little * to point out Antwerp.

I'm a nice guy, not more than that ;-)

There is every hour a bus to antwerp, which takes 50 mins. It leaves both Antwerp and the airport @ the hour (7am, 8am, etc).

You arrive at the central station in Antwerp, which on itself is worth a look.
