Overview
More
Brussels by Water, touroperator based in the center of Brussels, organizes guided boat tours through the capital of Europe. These short cruises are organised on a daily basis from May till October. From the deck of a boat you will discover Brussels and its developments in a completely different way. You will explore a canal scenery with numerous new architectural projects and green sites, new museums and shopping malls, besides historical buildings and monuments. The canal has become one of these ‘new places to be’ in the capital. Even more surprising is the port of Brussels with his portal and industrial activities that penetrate deeply into the heart of the city. It is surprising and contrasty. Except from these 1 and 2 hour cruises you can also enjoy daytrips to the beautiful Scheldt area, Antwerp or the Inclined Plane of Ronquières. These guided day trips are organised on specific days and dates. Please check our website.

It really is a nice boat trip when you like to see the city from another point of view. Do not expect to have nice views of the city. It is more like exploring Brussels and the industrial life.

If you only speak English know that this trip will just be a boat ride for two hours. Guide only spoke French and Dutch. Looking at scraps of recycling materials was not that exciting.

10€ for this terrible 2h cruise? What a waste of time and money! There is nothing worth seeing, just mountains of industrial garbage along the river. Stay away!
