Postcards from Brussels, Belgium

I am posting my favourite postcards from Brussels, the capital city of Belgium. This place is a center of European culture (being called by many “the European Village”) where you can explore the beautiful parks, trendy restaurants and bars while eating chocolate like crazy and craving some waffles (this is what I was doing all day long). Hope you like them.

What was your first impression of Brussels (if you have ever been there)?

Get insured

"It will never happen to me" said every person before it happened to them. Accidents happen at home and abroad. The difference is that they are usually more costly when you're in a foreign country. That's why travelling without insurance is a bad idea. There's just no excuse to put yourself in such a risk.

>>voice from the crowd<< Travel insurance is too expensive!

>>voice of the common sense<< If you can't afford travel insurance then you can't afford to travel.

Don't take chances and get yourself insured now. Check out our budget travel insurance page.

  • I love the picture of you in the sweet shop, like a little kid in a sweet shop :-)

    I’ve been to Brussels once and found it to be very expensive. I was inter-railing so jumped onto the train and went to Antwerp instead (which is gorgeous).

    Whilst in Brussels I did get a corkscrew designed on the famous statue of the little boy in the city ;-)

    • Thanks a lot. I also like this photo. Being in this shop full of candies and my favourite chocolate I felt like a little kid. I was tasting different kinds of sweets like I used to do it when I was little and it felt great! Brussels was not that expensive for me. After Brussels I went to Oslo, so I wanted Oslo prices to be like Brussels prices :-(. Never been to Antwerp, but will surely go there one day. Lucky you! Wish I could get a corkscrew like that.

    • Hey Debbie. Thanks a lot. I loved Brussels! So picturesque. Never been to Barcelona though, visited Malaga only during mu studies. Of course I will send them out on Twitter and Facebook. Thanks a lot sweetie.

    • You were unlucky. The weather was good when I visited Brussels – not to cold, but raining a little. Thanks, I’m so glad you liked them. Wishing you good luck with your next trip to Brussels :-).

  • Lovely photos! I visited Brussels two years and I was blown away by how lovely the city was. So beautiful and the people were very friendly!

    • Hey Aryn! Thanks a lot, that is so true – Brussels does blow away by its loveliness and charm and people are extremely friendly.

  • Beautiful photos! And such a varied collection of shots – I love it! I’m happy that you mixed food photos in with the scenery, since those are the two things that pretty much make or break a city for me ;).

  • You’re pictures look amazing! I live in Belgium (Antwerp) and I must say you captured the Belgian specialties perfectly! Brussels is a fun city but I recommend you to come to Antwerp. You will love it for sure, it’s smaller but the charm in that city is ten times bigger! Keep traveling, proud to have you in Belgium :)

    • I’ve heard of Antwerp from one of the bloggers and he said the same thing. I really regret not going there, only if I could turn back time… :-( Maybe next time. I’m so happy you liked it! I’m proud of these postcards!

    • Thanks Miret, I did have a wonderful time there, but unfortunately I didn’t manage to get to Switzerland, maybe next time :) so we can have some nice coffee and fancy lunch together ;-)

  • I’ve always loved your Postcards posts. These are such beautiful photos and really highlight Brussels. We were only there for a day and judging from this, we missed out on a lot of great architecture. Where’s the Mannekin Pis shot? :) We really enjoyed our visit there and how can you not with all those chocolate samples? We hope to visit again soon.

    • Thanks Mary! I will post more photos of the Mannekin Pis later on in my next Brussels notes :):) I have a few good shots of this little funny kid :P I was craving a lot of chocolate in Brussels, could resist the temptation!

  • This photo post reminds me of my own trip to Belgium a few years ago! I was there around New Year’s and it was FREEZING. I spent most of my time in art museums and bars trying to avoid the cold. Good thing Belgium has a great beer and chocolate scene, it helped keep me warm!

  • I work in Brussels and I recognize a lot of those places! Always funny to see a city where you spend a lot of time through the eyes of a traveller :-)
