Parking is a disaster! Like really a disaster! No clear signs and it was a huge event with more than 10.000 dogs! It is like finding a needle in the hay. Also a lot more ATM is adviseable! Far not enough toilets.

Impressive from the outside...big old halls that had a wartime feel to them Built in the 1930's I believe Flooring very dodgy in parts and I saw many people have trouble on the wooden slats that covered the trunking underfloor Air Con was needed but varied from hall to hall Needs a face lift

I attended a convention in this location. Parking was decent, and the architecture was also interesting. Amenities were also decent. Prices for food were normal for a convention center.

If you visit the atomium you can take beautiful pictures of the views, including the Brussels expo. You have also information and documents from the expo in the museum 📜

You can easily spend whole day in this area. World famous Atomium, Mini Europe, Football Stadion etc. are all here. There is also a Heysel metro station near Expo, so easy to get. Definitely a must see area.
