What to see in Belgium

Belgium Attractions


When it comes to world-class attractions and exciting sightseeing options Belgium packs a mighty punch for a country of such modest proportions. Take your pick from the heavyweight attractions and cosmopolitan thrills of the capital city Brussels, to the medieval charms of Bruges, and the lesser known historical treasures of Ghent. In between, you'll find welcoming people, great food and Europe's finest beer and chocolates to keep you energised.

Belgium is a year round destination too, although the countryside does look its best during the summer months of April to October. The transport infrastructure is excellent, and that makes getting around a true pleasure.

This is not a country to see from the confines of a tour bus, however. You need to get out on foot and explore the cobbled streets framed by medieval buildings; spend an afternoon on Grand Place watching the world go by; rent a bicycle and ride into the countryside alongside a burbling canal. However you choose to explore the pleasures of Belgium, spend some time here and you'll be rewarded with some of Europe's most underrated and wonderful attractions.
