The Brussels card was a brilliant asset to our trip. It gave us free transport around and free or discounted entry into the places we wanted to visit. The only negative thing I found was trying find the actual tourist office where I had to collect them from as signage was poor. The card is a defiant if you are taking a trip.
the most flexible way to see Brussels - worth every dime!!!
We loved this card! Free entry to so many Museums, free fares and discounts. It was brilliant.
The only inconvenience is that you cannot order it to a hotel or place of residence, but you have to collect it - and there are only 2 locations to do that. They also keep regular working hours which sucks if you want to go sightseeing from early morning, or you arrive in the evening :(
A great way to travel on the Metro and the added benefit of reduced admission to many venues.
We purchased a 72 hour card and really got our monies worth! Used it at as many museums and transportations that we could fit in! Good value!
The card was very useful and cost effective. You had access to some good venues and discounts in others. I can say that not all off the museums were as great but the card allowed to go into places that otherwise i would have not seen
We loved Brussels and the card worked great for us and we were able to use it on Christmas Day as the transportation was running and some of the Museums were open. Definitely worth the money spent!
This is a wonderful and very useful tool to use visiting a new city. Viator cost is very reasonable. The card enables you to use public transportation and visit most museum and places of interest. I wouldn't go without one!
I loved Brussels!!! There are so many cool places and museums and the Brussels Card is totally worth buying!!! Museums are not expensive but with the Card you can go to each of them as many times as you like. Most of them only work between 10AM and 5PM though and are closed on Mondays. And some of the participating venues are even closed on Tuesdays as well as on Mondays. If you want to visit the Botanical Garden you should probably avoid visiting Brussels on Monday and Tuesday... :)
A lot of free museum tours and free public transport for 48 hours. Definitely worth it! I just wish that the participating restaurants offered discounts instead of just free beer or coffee.
Brillant product! Made traveling around very easy and stress free. Really missed it when it ran out.
The Brussels card was great, with only two full days in Brussels and a long list of places to visit it saved a lot of time and money. The book that came with the card was also very helpful along with the free city map.
I found the Brussels card to be excellent value for money and easy to use on the transport systems. All the attractions are easily accessible and admission was speedy. I would recommend it to anyone planning to travel to Brussels.
Great value. Allows you access to public transport, discounts at museums, restaurants and pubs. Even includes admission to certain museums and facilities.
Great Value for Money! Plenty of things to do with the card that's provided, saw a significant savings and made it much easier not to have to spend on door entries.
As the first time, a year ago, I loved Brussels. Art Deco in architecture, Rene Magritte - the beauty I can relate to, and even more...
Superb value for money and so easy to use. Saved a lot of hassle on the Metro and trams, not to mention in the museums.
it's a very good experience, our guide explains everything in details and the condition of the bus is very good.

Travel cardspasses are great money - and time - savers. All of the best activities and tourist stops are covered in one low price, and no line waiting at the hottest attractions. Definitely recommended.
I feel the Brussels Card gave me some reassurance coming to a 'foreign land' not knowing their transport systems, so the 72-hr card gave me the freedom to travel on the metro whenever and wherever I wanted. I did notice however that there are no ticket checks and the turnstiles were always open, so the card wasn't needed as many locals just hopped on and off without validating any tickets in the yellow machines. Although I did pop my travel ticket in at the beginning of my trip. Was their transport free? I enjoyed the free entry at many museums and discounts at the Atomium, mini-Europe, and restaurants. I did a lot of walking as I discovered after day 1 it was quicker to get from Rogier Place to Grand Place on foot via the pedestrianised shopping street, Rue Neuve, than waiting 8 minutes for the metro to arrive. I did not understand the bus system, so I chose to either tram, metro or walk the town. Brussels is eclectically a beautiful architectural city and the people are courteous and make one feel welcome. Like any city, it also has its dirty streets and public places, but on the whole I enjoyed my visit and the taste of the food and art. I may be back some day again!
Very useful to have to visit different museums... but you can also buy the same card in Bruxelles for a similar price

It made it so easy to just go from museum to museum. I also feel like most of the museums preferred if you had the card. Having unlimited access to public transportation was also very helpful. Most of the museums are small so you have the chance to see a lot of them and it helps that they are fairly close together.
