The Smallest World-City
Brussels is a relatively safe European city. Beware of pick-pocketers, and at night avoid walking near the westward arc between North and Midi railway stations, and Rogier and De Brouckere Metro Stations. Money should always be kept in a safe place, and if you like, wear a money belt. If you are however a victim of crime be sure to contact the police as soon as possible in order to ascertain a secure travel insurance claim. In an emergency, call 101 (police and emergency medical serves). Ensure to carry personal ID and the address of your Brussels accommodation. Belgium in general has also seen "hate crimes" against visible minorities recently.
