4.1 / 5

based on 281 reviews

I decided to buy the 72h Brussels Card (museums + transport) through this app as we had to spend exactly 3 days in Brussels. We had made a calculation of the attractions we wanted to see + transport and in fact it was much more convenient to do the map. I highly recommend doing it 1) in 3 days you can really visit many museums 2) because the vehicles work perfectly and doing the day is not convenient, we have practically always used them knowing that we have included them !! The only flaw is that you have to go to the information center in Grand Place and show your voucher, from there they will print QR codes to be used in each museum indicated. As for transport: you must always go to the info center in Grand Place, they will print a 6-digit code to be entered in the red "GO TICKET" machines that you find at each bus / tram stop or in the metro, they will print the transport pass, passing it on the first vehicle will be activated!

I ordered a 72-hour card for each of us and I have to say that it was really worth it. We didn't have to pay an entrance fee anywhere and visited 3 museums and/or churches per day - including those that aren't even listed here. And when it comes to public transport - it couldn't be easier and is valid everywhere, whether bus, tram or metro. When scanning, you even get the remaining term of the card displayed. In general, public transport in Brussels - many a person could learn a lesson here. Clean and air-conditioned!!! The only tiny drawback - we first found out how activation via Go machines works via the City Card app and not from the staff when redeeming the voucher on site, so we only got more slips of paper with the necessary QR codes. And these Go machines are only at major hubs. You should already know that.

Amazing visit with sounds and lights and an incredible panoramic view of Brussels, in this atypical monument. To do absolutely.

Very practical , easy to use it and has bebe uses during last 4 days in Brussels. I would recommend!!! Alex Paz

Well worth the price, you will get your money's worth on it
