When visiting Brussels,the best way to go around all the sites is to buy a one day ticket that costs 4.5 euros and it's valid for all trams, buses and metros (with a few exceptions, but they are shown at the pay-office). Pay caution, you need to punch the ticket on every journey you take. Strange, but they didn't accept credit cards for this, so you must have cash with you. I think only belgian cards work there, because there was a POS. If you go to the travel information center located in the train station they will explain everything you want to know and even give you a map with the city. From where you buy the ticket you can get also an tram and metro map which is very useful. With this you can see everything that is important to see in Bruxelles and it's so convenient to use. It's hard to get lost in Brussels if you only follow this map.
