Last June, I spent the weekend in Brussels with my colleagues and our partners. There was 12 of us in total and I was put in charge or organising the accomodation, travel and itinerary. After plenty of research, one thing became clear…when in Brussels, waffles and beer were essentials.
After lots of research, I found a beautiful house on Airbnb which we had for the weekend. It had plenty of bedrooms, a fantastic communal area for drinks in the evening and some outside space too. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Brussels in a big group, I’d recommend taking a look at the house here.
So we all travelled to Brussels via Eurostar on the Saturday morning and arrived at the house. After having a quick look around we headed out to enjoy some lunch before exploring. I was amazed with how beautiful Brussels is, especially the amazing buildings.
The itinerary was left pretty clear so that everybody could visit wherever they liked and explore the city as they fancied however I did book one thing; a waffle workshop. Tucked away in a small building in the centre of Brussels, we took part in a waffle workshop and got to create our own traditional Belgium waffles and add toppings etc. I was really impressed with how easy the waffles were to make as I definitely expected them to be a lot more complicated and tricky to get it right but I was pleasantly surprised.
As well as the waffle workshop, we enjoyed plenty of other delicious food throughout the weekend. One thing that really surprised me was the breakfast menu in Brussels. It seems that just about anything goes and a real mixture of food is thrown together which strangely worked really well.
And last but not least, the beer. I’m not a fan of beer but when in Brussels, it only seemed right that I at least tried it. We visited a beer cave which had loads of beer on tap with a selection of beers including fruity beers, which I decided to go for. The atmosphere in the beer cave was really cool as it was just tucked away on a normal street and is underground and even had a photobooth inside so of course, I was all over that.
Overall, Brussels was an amazing city which I would definitely recommend everybody visiting. Especially as it’s so close to the UK and so easy to get to via the Eurostar. There’s plenty to do and see and the food and drink is amazing.
Have you been to Brussels before?
