Solo travel experience

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.

Local experience

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.

Solo travel experience

For Brussels I really recommend the Lace Museum, the Comic Strips Museum and the Chocolate Museum. Also walking around the old town and seeing Manneken Pis are a must. There is also a museum in the main square where you can see different outfits for Manneken Pis for different occasions, it's really cool!
