I loved Brussels. Just a short train ride to Ghent, Bruges, and Ostend. I felt very safe there. I chose to stay there for Christmas and was not disappointed. Many establishments were open on Christmas Day. Fantastic art museum. A little cheese shop that was to die for. My hotel was a short walk from the Central Station.Posted: September 18, 2023
I was surprised by Brussels. I was there and enjoyed going around. There are lots of beautiful places, nice shops, and colorful markets and also in the evening, I remember a lively atmosphere and music. I stayed very near Grand Place, taking also day trips by bus to Ghent, Antwerp, and Bruges. I loved the whole experience in the city.Posted: July 28, 2023
Brussels is a great place to live in as a student,there's loads of transport and people to meet . It's small, cozy and some neighborhoods are really alive. But if you're traveling here I would recommend not staying too too long since after a while there's nothing to visit or to do for free anymore here. But it's still enjoyable if you like to chill.Posted: July 19, 2023Experienced: May, 2023
I went on a short trip to Brussel to visit my friend I spent there 4 nights. I had the best time, friendliest people and it was so easy to get around and I practiced my French although they speak another dialect but they were really nice and patient with me . Food was cheap and best thrifting experience 😍 They have shops where you by clothes and accessories by the kilo, so you basically weigh the stuff you want and you pay the bare minimum I got soooo many stuff for under 30€ I haven't tried many Belgian meals but the brunch meals are a must as well as the sweets ofc we had Belgian waffles which were funnily shaped as vaginas and penises 😂😂 It's really safe we were two girls roaming around brussels late at night and gladly we didn't encounter any problems with anyone. So an overall perfect experience 👌Posted: June 19, 2023Experienced: December, 2022
I went to Brussels in Belgium with a friend a few months ago. Really loved it. It’s a big city but with a small-town vibe. We took a day trip to Luxembourg, which was also really pretty. We booked a bus, and it’s really cheap (FlixBus). If we’ve had more days I would have liked to do a day trip to Bruge as well, as I’ve heard it’s really nice.Posted: June 11, 2023
I was only there for 2 days but I walked everywhere and felt pretty safe. The only place I felt was a little sketchy was the bus station at late night because sadly there were a lot of homeless people there.Posted: April 23, 2023
I recently travelled to Brussels alone and I loved it! I felt really safe, the hostel was great and there was plenty to do! Plus, I loved belgium waffles and belgian chocolate. I took a walking tour which was brilliant and showed me all the best historic sites, and gave brilliant recommendations for where to eat etc.Posted: December 14, 2022
For sight seeing I recommend Queen galleries, sablon, royal palace, mont des arts (where you have nice musuems close by, I recommend to go see at least from the outside the museum of instruments and the bozar musuem, that are in beautiful buildings). For drinks and brewery delirium is a good popular choice and is really in the center and old narrow streets, the brussel beer project is nice too. For cocktails the vertigo is nice bar down from the Sablon (area where you can get a lot of chocolates) and is in old and quite unique building. Around the Halles St Gery there are nice bars and the atmosphere is quite festive usually. Around the "parvis de Saint gilles" there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants, I personnally like the "ce piace", and not far from that a nice brunch place is "le petit mercado". The "place de jeu de balles" is also nice, it has a flee market, lots of antics, bars and restaurants, its nice to wander around in the streets and you can walk a bit in the neighbourhood and go in front of pieter bruegels (an old famous painter) house and go see the palace of justice by going with an elevator and have a view of the city. Another area that is nice and quite lively is place Flagey, you can go to get fries on the place and then have a drink at the Belga for example, and if you walk a bit follow the ponds of ixelles and go to the abbaye de la cambre and walk in the parc around.Posted: November 20, 2022

Mini Europe is cool, the atominon building is really cool, have a meal in the top sphere. Downtown is great, lots of places to get good food, lots of chocolate, be sure to get the fries with the dipping sauces.Posted: October 1, 2022
Hi! I'm an ambivert girl (neither intro- nor extrovert) who loves meeting people! I have traveled a lot already, in my not (yet) so long life, and am continuing to do so, on my own. I love to help were I can, and I do so gladly. My motto would probably be "stay curious and explore". ☺️

Hey everyone!! My name is Aurore, but you can say Aurora if it feels more natural to you (I love how "Aurora" sounds). I'm a 23 years-old student in Brussels (I study law, in the hope of maybe working for a charity that gives legal advice to migrants). I love to travel and discover new cultures and new people! I love chill travels where I take my time for exemple to sunbathe, swim, or hike to a nice spot to picnick there. I love sports and nature! I also love to discover history and culture, even though I don't like spending all day in museums. I also like walking around in cities. I'm going to Greece (Thessaloniki) this August with my sister. But when she goes back home on the 26th, I'd like to stay a bit longer in Greece, or I'd also love to visit the neighbouring countries. I've been to a trip around Greece a long time ago, and I have an awesome memory of this trip but I want to see more of Greece! I'll be happy to try and give you tips about Belgium or countries I've been to (I say "try" because even in my own city I feel like such a tourist, I never know what bars to recommend and I get lost quickly 😂). And I'd be happy to help you practice French if you want! I'm only fluent in French and English but if you're patient with me and speak slowly we can also communicate in German or Dutch. And I intend on learning the basics of Greece before my trip. I'm vegan and would be happy if you don't mind me using your kitchen to cook a vegan meal for you, or with you :) Oh and I'm queer (not saying that to look for a date, just in case you feel more comfortable around other queer people) ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I'm a linguist, avid reader, and lover of words and puzzles. I love a good stimulating conversation or activity; board games and escape rooms top the list. I look forward to talking with intelligent and interesting people, and ultimately would like to do in-person activities with someone who is also vaccinated!
