24 hours of free time in Brussels: Stay or Go?
May 20, 2014 9:09 AM Subscribe
In June, I'll be in Brussels for a conference. Sessions run from ~08:00 - 17:30 Monday - Thursday. However, I'll be getting into Brussels on Saturday around 16:30. Should I take the train to Ghent or Bruges, or should I spend Saturday evening / Sunday day in Brussels? If staying in Brussels, what should I do that I can't do in the evenings during the week?

I've never been to Belgium before and probably won't return (no fault of Belgium, just have countries higher on the list to see).
Special snowflake caveats:
* I don't drink alcohol
* I don't eat pork or shellfish
* I like chocolate somewhat, but couldn't spend the whole day doing a tasting crawl.
* I was considering hitting up both Comptoir Florian
and Chalet Robinson
sometime during the week.
