Belgium: a tiny country that packs a major tourism punch

Straddling the age-old cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe, Belgium features two halves that have created a varied country rich with tourist attractions. Want to know what to do in Belgium? Book a hotel in Brussels and take day trips through the Flemish and Wallonia cities for an unforgettably satisfying holiday. Marvel at the Grand Place in Brussels, a vast market square surrounded by truly spectacular historic buildings, learn about Belgium’s Flemish art at museums, and don’t miss the famous Manneken Pis statue! History buffs will love the In Flanders Fields Museum (WWI) and the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History, located in Cinquantenaire Park in Brussels. The Tomorrowland Festival, one of the biggest electronic music festivals in the world, is held every summer in the city of Boom (30 minutes from Brussels) and is a must for EDM lovers. Tourists will not regret making day trips from Brussels to Bruges and Ghent, two small medieval towns crossed by charming canals, ideal for romantic canal cruises. If you like to travel in Europe, Belgium is a destination that will enchant you!
