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 and things to do. Book a quaint village hotel in the French south or travel through the Flemish cities in the north for an unforgettably satisfying holiday.

Belgium Your Way

A seaside trip on the Coast Tram is a favourite with couples who love old-fashioned romance. The longest tram in the world, it connects the towns and cities along the entire Belgian coast. Hop on and off all day for a reasonable flat rate. Go antiquing together at Sablon Market, one of the oldest flea markets in Europe. Peruse old silver and Art Deco pieces, and choose from lace handkerchiefs, corkscrews and old prints for some unique souvenirs.
Family playgrounds
Don’t have time for a full-fledged European tour with the family this year? Then opt for a visit to Mini-Europe in Brussels, where kids love towering over reproductions of over 400 miniature EU cities and buildings. Especially fun? Live-action models of trains, cable cars, mills and an erupting Mount Vesuvius. The Chocolate Line in Antwerp is a must for sampling Belgium’s famed export. Adults appreciate the shop’s majestic setting – the bedchamber and drawing room in Muir Palace, once home to Napoleon. Kids love sneaking a peek in the Chocolate Kitchen, where the whimsical creations are concocted.
Travelling with friends
Every member of your group is sure to find a beer they love at de Bier Tempel, close to Brussels’ Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Choose from among hundreds of Belgium’s unique brews, including Westvleteren, a rare monk-made ale. Have a surreal experience with your friends at the Magritte Museum, where over 200 of the artist’s original works are displayed. Don’t forget to take pictures of the awesome trompe-l’oeil exterior.

    By CEDRIC LIZOTTE / 23 July 2015
    It’s fashionable these days to go “off the beaten path” and “travel like a local”. However, each city has its classics that tourists can’t miss: it would be a shame to visit Paris without taking a look at the Eiffel Tower, or go to Mexico City without tasting a taco. So what’s a serious traveller to do? Do the classics right. In Brussels, there are a few Belgian food classics that are inevitable. The Belgians are said to have invented “French” fries. They’re known around the world for their beers. And Belgian chocolate is a source of national pride. Here’s how to avoid the tourist traps, get the real stuff where the locals get it and eat like a professional tourist!
