48 hours in Brussels – Day 1

It’s very simple to go from Amsterdam to Brussels. You can buy train tickets in Amsterdam central station ticket office. It’s better to buy in advance just to be safe. I took the Hispeed train Fyra that covers the distance between Amsterdam and Brussels in  less than 2 hours.

Grand Place

The first stop in Brussels was of course the Grand Place. For my surprise there was a giant bizarre Christmas tree in the middle of the square. I thought to myself wtf?

Chocolate shopping

Last time I was in Belgium I didn’t buy a single chocolate. Stupid, stupid me! This time I bought one box of chocolate in each chocolate store I found. I tried four famous brands: Neuhaus, Leonidas, Godiva and Pierre Marcolini. Although the most luxurious and expensive one is Pierre Marcolini my favorite was Neuhaus without a doubt.

Christmas Market

I simply loved the Christmas market. Maybe I was the indecent amount of champagne I drank that day… maybe not.
