Hello all, I will be in Antwerp on business next week (4 nights, with 2 half days for sight-seeing) then heading to Brussels for 2 nights before heading back to the US.
I am thinking of using one of my days in Brussels to take the train to Brugges. It appears that we can see most of the major sights in Brussels (i.e. Grand Place, Manneken-Pis, etc. ) in one day. Would you Brussels experts agree with that? I don't want to short-change Brussels, but I also don't know if I will get back to Belgium any time soon!
If so, how long will the train take to Brugges? I'll go on the Brugges forum to figure out how many hours to spend there and what are the "must-see's."
Finally, we are staying at the Marriott in Brussels. Any suggestions for good pubs or cafes near there? We (my husband will be accompanying me) enjoy good food in a casual atmosphere, and trying different beers and wines.
Thanks in advance for your help!
