Even more special offers for 2018
Once again the Brussels Card – the city’s all-in museum pass – is offering even more this year. Available for 24, 48 or 72 hours, the Brussels Card now gives free entry to 39 museums in Brussels (including all the major ones in the capital) and 24 discounts in tourist attractions, on guided tours, in shops, restaurants and bars, along with a free map of the city and a map showing the museums.
There is also the option of adding STIB public transport or unlimited use of the Hop on Hop off buses to your Brussels Card. So the whole of Brussels is there in just one card. All you have to do is scan it when you enter a museum or get on the bus, tram or metro.
New offers with the Brussels Card 2018
This new version offers several new benefits. Added to the already long list of museums you can enter with the card are two newcomers: Train World (open since 2015) and the Jewish Museum of Belgium, which is attracting attention this year with a few choice exhibitions such as Amy Winehouse, A Family Portrait from May.
The offers also include four new ones: 25% off City Runs, an original way of discovering the city by jogging, a free beer of the month from the Brussels Beer Project, the brewing cooperative in the heart of Brussels, 10% off the bill at the Belgian Comic Strip Centre’s restaurant Brasserie Horta, and 15% off Chez Léon, one of the top places to experience Belgian cuisine!
Discovering Brussels has never been so easy!
Choose the type of card that suits you. The Brussels Card is available for 24, 48 or 72 hours. If you also want to use the STIB bus, tram and metro network (including the Noctis bus and buses to and from Brussels Airport) free of charge, then opt for the card with the public transport option. If you would rather get around on a double-decker panoramic bus, then select the “Hop on Hop off” extra.
If you buy the Brussels Card online, you’ll be sent a voucher with a QR code that can be used as son as you arrive in Brussels in the city’s museums and on public transport*. You no longer need to stop off at an exchange point first!
* For public transport, you need a specific ticket that can be obtained from one of the many STIB ticket machines just by entering a unique code.
A practical guide and much more besides
Each Brussels Card comes with a completely up-to-date guide (90 pages, ENG/FR/DU) featuring all the museums and partners included with your Brussels Card. The museums in it are arranged by theme: ‘Art’, ‘Brussels’, ‘History’, ‘Gastronomy’, ‘Sciences’ and lastly seven ‘Best Kept Secrets’. This information pack is rounded off by a visit.brussels city map and the new edition of the museum map (February 2018) which shows 107 museums in Brussels and how to get there by public transport.
Visit more, pay less
As well as making visiting the city easier, the Brussels Card also allows you to save on admission prices. Here’s an example of the kind of savings you can make: a couple are spending 48 hours in Brussels, want to use public transport and plan to visit the Magritte Museum, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre, the Musical Instruments Museum, BOZAR (currently showing the Fernand Léger exhibition) and the Brussels City Museum.
They will also get a discount for the Atomium and when they have a guided tour of the City Hall. Without the Brussels Card, this would have cost them € 98, but with a Brussels Card containing the public transport option, they will only have to pay € 65, saving them € 33! This also includes the cost of the travel card itself, which does not have to be paid with a Brussels Card.
