How To Have an Unforgettable Time in Brussels!

How to have an unforgettable time in Brussels!


Earlier this summer Ian and Henry headed out to Brussels to complete a project with @visitbrussels.  They had a great time and these were their top three tips from the trip!

1. Without a doubt having lunch underwater at Nemo 33 was the most extraordinary experience from our time in Brussels.  Although neither of us were experienced divers, we felt safe and comfortable after a 45 minute diving lesson.  The experience was like nothing else we’d ever done and incredibly surreal!  If you can image a giant fish bowl secured underwater upside down - you’ve imaged the Nemo 33 restaurant.  We had a vegan menu and the food was delicious.  And the champagne was the icing on top of the whole experience.


2. A helicopter tour of any city offers a unique perspective and can add so much to one’s understanding of the layout of the city.  Brussels is no different and a helicopter tour is an epic and exciting way to see the scale of the city.  It is also interesting to observe how surrounded the city is by forrest and castles, which was a big surprise for me!  Henry got some incredible shots of the forrest surrounding the city

3. The food and beer!  Make sure you enjoy the Belgium-Fries, as opposed to French-Fries, haha!  Additionally, the waffles and chocolates are some of the best we’ve ever had and really do live up the world class reputation.  Try and head to a beer festival if there is one on, or a pub with literally hundreds of options for beer.  We visited the Delirium cafe with over 2000 types of beer!


The XPO Creatives Team were hosted by the Brussels Tourism Board, Visit Brussels.  We would like to extend a big thank you to the Visit Brussels team for an amazing week in Brussels earlier this year - look forward to returning next year
