Grand Place / Grote Markt
Flight on time... but if u are planning to leave the Bruxelles airport in 5 minuts - forget it! The terminals are so long that u get tired after hundrets of meters walking just to go down then up and down again... so you walk and walk. I must admit the airport is quite ok, but they have to built some kind of people mover or airport metro to improve the acces to gates :D
From the airport there are at least two good ways to get into the town: 1 - by bus (lines 11 and 12)which takes u in about 25min to the 'Schuman' metro station, which is at the building of EU-comission, or: 2 - by train - the airport express takes u in few minutes to city centre and the main railway stations. My choose was the first option cuz my fried lives only 5min walk from 'Schuman' :D

The first view and i was in love with this city! when still on plane, just under the clouds while approaching the ground - u already can see how smart is it built. The straight streets with cute houses going up and down with cars parked at and not on the pavements (hahaha), so many green there... cute smal parks or green yards, that all make an impression of well thought urban space.

After eating something we went - or better said: we had a ride by metro :D:D:D to the city center - walking through Grand Place, Bourse, Boulevard Anspach, so many lights, so many people, so many new impressions, so many steps... i'm tired!
