Have a feast in either small or star restaurants of Brussels. Try the famous Belgium fries or waffles.

Shopping lovers have a broad variety of choice in Brussels. The Rue Neuve and its brands, the Sablon and its antiques, the Place du Jeu de Balle and its flea market as well as the Avenue de la Toison d’Or and its luxury goods, are prescribed!

    Slow and old train. |
    "I think the Euro star should be quite new and comfort. But the seat, and inside of train, is old. It's gives bad impression. And it becomes slow after land on England, at last, it's delay on arrival. "

    Convenient, Comfortable, Cool |
    "We had no difficulty booking the tickets from India. We misplaced one printout but having access to the booking reference we had no difficulty getting a ticket issued at the station. (Only do remember that such tickets need to be endorsed at the stands near the platform). The seats were comfortable. The berths for the night journey were okay. There is food available on the day trains at reasonable prices. Overall definitely recommended. "

    "Unfortunately Wifi connection was bad. Compare to the bus the cost was too high "

  • Bad Experience on my trip |
    "It was a very bad experience to take the train in Nord station from Brussels to Frankfurt, my first journey to Germany. All trains are cancelled without prior announcement. No email was received. We know that until we took the train to this station. The staff in Brussels didn't help much and lost in temper to explain what we could do. Finally, we had to go to Midi Station to take coach to Koln and took another train to Frankfurt. It took us more than 12 hours. "
