Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

No. The best thing about living here is the ease of travel. However, there seems to be a lot of aggression towards us from other drivers (our plates make us stand out). They will cut you off left and right when driving as if to prove a point. Very frustrating. Never seen such aggression and we were posted in the Middle East. - Feb 2019


Absolutely. I've come to love Brussels and Belgium. - Feb 2019


Probably, but with more realistic expectations of the annoying things. - May 2018


Yes. Not that I had a choice. ;) - Jan 2018


It was a good place to live temporarily but I'm in no rush to go back. - Feb 2017


ABSOLUTELY!!! - Dec 2016


In a heart beat! That is why we have done two back to back tours here (with one SMA while husband was in Iraq in between). - Aug 2014


YES! I'm trying to figure out how to stay here without sending the officer away to a war zone! - Jul 2014


Yes. - Apr 2014


Of course. Brussels may not be the most exciting city in the world but you're at the heart of Western Europe. - Jan 2014


Absolutely! - Jan 2014


No. I would not go again because I now know how much the weather effects me. If you are someone from a rainy place (Portland, Seattle, etc.) then Brussels will be like that...on steroids! - Oct 2012


No. It is a very comfortable and affordable place to be, but a little dull if you are single and in your 20s. The lack of customer service can be frustrating also. - May 2012


Yes. Some people complain about Brussels, but it's an easy place to live. - Jan 2012


Probably not. - Nov 2011


Not sure. If nothing else in Western Europe were available, maybe. - Aug 2011


Not only would I still go, but I could easily settle here. This city is made for expats. - Jul 2011


No - its just too boring. - Jun 2011


I would - it's been an experience, but I wouldn't come back for a second tour. - Jun 2011


Sure. - Jun 2010


Yes. - Jun 2010


Yes, it is a great place to live. Only cautions are the housing, and the traffic. - Mar 2010


Yes...but I would work at the American Embassy instead of NATO. I would not wish the NATO experience on my worst enemy ! - Jul 2009
