Old school puppet theatre / pub. Mostly locals hang out here. Cash only and they do have specific times when kids can come.
On your visit to Brussels, you'll eventually wind up here as most visitors do. Lots of food vendors, lots of beautiful buildings to see and tons of photo ops.
A more college town feel but a lot more hip than Bruges. You come to Ghent to wander around and also to see the famous Gravensteen castle.
Bruges is often referred to as the Venice of the North (Meaning norther Europe). A great place to see the former powerhouse of nautical trading.
Not just known for their great chocolate and beer, Brussels is also home to the European Union.
