Belgium

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Belgium gleams with medieval splendour. Throughout the main Belgian cities like Brussels, Antwerp, and Ghent, you’re offered spectacular sights of well-preserved World Heritage landmarks, some dating back as far as the 15th century. Walking down quaint, cobbled alleys or cruising through the network of scenic waterways like the Bruges canals offers you charming scenes with rows of crow-stepped gables. 

Beyond the picturesque appeals, Belgium treats you to an essential gastronomic journey through more than just the chocolates, waffles, tarts, beers, and fries that it’s most famous for. Each Belgian city has an old quarter with old-fashioned bistros and medieval confectionaries. Moreover, Belgium is one of the more compact European countries, so you can experience more of it in a single visit.

  • Brussels

    Brussels is a bona fide multiethnic melting pot, and while its blend of cultures includes French, Flemish, North African, and Asian strands, the result is uniquely Belgian.  The trendy Belgian capital is known for producing some of the world’s best chocolates, and its love for fine dining has resulted in dozens of Michelin-starred restaurants and Art Deco brasseries in the city centre. A notable Brussels landmark is Grand Place, a beautiful main square that’s home to the stunning Gothic Town Hall and the Museum of the City of Brussels.
