For culture in Brussels: Saint-Gilles

quartier-saint-gilles-loger-hotel-bruxelles

The area attracts musicians, artists and writers, and also has a lively events calendar full of fun festivals. The lack of tourist attractions in Saint-Gilles means you’ll probably be able to save money on accommodation if you decide to stay here.
