Belgium as a tour and holiday destination
Belgium is often overlooked by its neighbours, Holland and France, but this country is well worth a trip.
Explore the majestic Brussels, a city divided between French and Flemish culture. A stroll through the glass-ceilinged, airy Galeries Saint Hubert is a perfect expression of all that is Belgian: the cafe culture, the rich aroma of chocolate wafting through the air, the quirky bookshops and the delicious Flemish restaurants, serving up moules-frites, mussels and chips. Discover the city’s Art Nouveau architecture, or see the heart of European politics.
The sleepy alter-ego of Brussels is Bruges. This small city is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe and it is easy to imagine a past not so long ago when wandering along the cobbled streets. Bruges is famous for its chocolate, breweries and diamonds, with a museum specially dedicated to each.
Belgium’s other major cities of Antwerp and Ghent have their own personalities too, creating the diverse and open country that Belgium is today.
