Go-pass is 1 line per direction, worth it on any ride above 45 mins, I'd estimate.

Resto's in Brussels, very few, and call each one with specific dates and hours, or you might well be dissappointed.

One of them closed recently, but don't recall which one.
balshetzer or whatever is occasionally open. De bronu ceased to exist.

Amsterdam is also possible if you want.
As is Paris, but the train often cost a lot.

To AMS the price fluctuations are less aggressive, and could fit the one day outings better.

Not sure how long you're staying for but the PH Paris is about 2 hours away by train.

It's a nice hotel, but seriously?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Never heard they offer free kosher, (or kosher at all), but hey I don't know everything.

Read through the thread. SuperFlyer, I'm landing in BRU Monday evening and leaving Thursday evening. Thinking of taking a train that first night to AMS, spending Tuesday and Wednesday there, taking a train Wednesday night to ANR, taking a train Thursday morning to Ghent/Bruges and then taking a train back to ANR and train back to BRU to catch my 7PM flight.

Think that's possible? Do I need to buy the train tickets ahead of time?

It is possible, but the Thursday would be quite rushed.

The only train you might want to consider buying ahead of time are the Belgium AMS tickets, if you intend on using the high speed train.

Start Thursday as early as possible.

To avoid rushing, do you suggest doing Belgium on Tuesday so I'm not pressured to catch a flight and then going late at night to AMS. Have 1.5 days in AMS, coming back Thursday afternoon to catch the flight out of BRU?

Yeah, that's going to be the plan. Might even train to Antwerp the evening I land in Brussels, so it's one less train I have to take in the morning. Just going to see where I find a better hotel deal.

1st pic description... Yes for all those following politics, they do sell sodastream in belguim 8)
2nd pic... the grand grand central station.
3rd pic....a really old shul in the hear of the jewelry district of antwerp
4th pic.. IS IT REALLY WORTH GOING TO BELGIUM WITHOUT TRYING THEIR FAMOUS BEER????

anyway if anyone is in Antwerp superflyer is a great guy to get in touch with. he may even show ya around. thanks.
and this is of course all thanks to dans deals!
