Gorgeous landscapes, spectacular architecture, a vibrant music scene and of course, world-famous chocolate and waffles… the western European country of Belgium, on the North Sea Coast, is a food-lover’s paradise as well as an explorer’s dream!
The low-lying country, which shares borders with France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands has three main geographical regions, offering diversity of landscapes and attractions for visitors to explore. With vast coastal plains in the north-west, rolling hills centrally and wooded hills and valleys in the south-east, the country boasts a plethora of natural beauties. And you won’t be short of exercise here either – most of the country’s cities are easily (and best!) explored on foot.
Head to the buzzing capital city of Brussels on your Belgium holiday! There’s no shortage of attractions here, including its 90 museums, gorgeous green spaces, brilliant nightlife, diversity of festivals and of course, the country’s world-famous chocolate, waffles and beer!
The Grand Place, located in the capital’s central square, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, as a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by Brussel’s Town Hall, a variety of guildhalls and an array of beautiful century-old buildings.
Make sure to see the city’s Atomium on your Belgium holiday, an icon of the country standing over 100 metres tall offering breathtaking views over the capital. Explore the lively city’s infamous flea markets, sample the delicious local specialties, try some authentic Belgium craft beer, marvel at the landmark Manneken Pis and let loose with the city’s fantastic nightlife offerings…
Or why not choose Bruges, the capital of west Flanders, with its pretty canals, UNESCO centre, medieval buildings, cobbled streets and abundance of chocolate-offerings? The perfect spot for quiet, scenic walks, you can meander and dream away the hours on a holiday or day trip to beautiful Bruges! Take a stroll around the central plaza on your Belgium holiday and visit Groeningemuseum – explore Bruges on foot for a blissful Belgium escape.
The village and port of Zeebrugge is a great area and subdivision of Bruges, offering another idyllic spot for holiday detoxing from everyday life… or head to the historic port city of Antwerp, on the River Schelft, on your Belgium holiday! As Belgium’s second city, Antwerp is a fantastic part of the country to explore – particularly by bike! – with its plethora of monuments, museums and attractions, including the popular Antwerp Zoo and De Ruien, the Antwerp Canals. A visit to Steen Castle is a must on your Antwerp holiday; an impressive medieval fortress in the old city centre!
East of Brussels, you can find the charming city of Leuven, with its spectacular city hall, pretty botanical garden and breweries. Or escape to Ghent in north-west Belgium on your holiday, the country’s third largest city and a buzzing university town known for its mesmerising Gravensteen castle and Saint Peter’s Abbey and museum.
Venture to Liège along the Meuse River on your Belgium break, a French-speaking city with a medieval centre, fantastic Curtius Museum and magnificent Liege-Guillemins Station.
History-lovers should head to Ypres in West Flanders, for its popular, award-winning In Flanders Fields Museum; dedicated to the story of the First World War. The Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing is a war memorial and landmark in the town; one of four British and Commonwealth memorials to the missing in the battlefield area of the Ypres Salient in Belgian Flanders.
Or instead discover the Caves of Han-sur-Lesse on your Belgium holiday, now a major tourist attraction located on the outskirts of Han-sur-Lesse village.
Namur, the off-the-beaten-track capital city of the Wallonia region, is another great area, with its beautiful medieval fortress, sitting above the town, fantastic museums, cosy cafes and brilliant theatre…
And for those seeking blissful relaxation on their Belgium holiday, choose the town of Spa in the east, known for its mineral-rich thermal waters! Enjoy the town’s marvellous hot springs on your break for the ultimate day of tranquillity…
Belgium is clearly a destination for sweet-toothed travellers! The country produces over 170,000 tonnes of chocolate each year, offering more than 2,000 chocolate shops throughout its lands. These infamous chocolate shops can be found scattered across the country’s three regions (Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia) and diverse cities… a holiday foodie’s delight! Why not book a festive trip to Belgium with Travelopo and take advantage of the Christmas markets scattered across the country? There’s no better way to get in the festive spirit than by sampling an authentic Belgium waffle, dripping with chocolate…
With a temperate maritime climate, influenced by the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean, Belgium typically has cool summers and moderate winters, offering a year-round destination, depending on what type of trip you desire. July is the hottest month here, with an average temperature of 18*C.
