Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 560 reviews

Very practical this pass... reductions granted, which is not negligible and access to many museums for free. Finally, the multiple choice of activities offered allows you to discover Brussels in a cultural, fun and gastronomic way.

It is a bit cumbersome to have to pick up the QR code from the tourist information, but probably unavoidable for legal reasons.

card happily reimbursed for me since I was doing an intensive weekend of visits!

Very well set up, not the largest but a lot of nice vehicles

Definitely interesting to see. Has a second floor as well.
