Ghent-Belgium

A guide to visiting Belgium

A small country in the shadow of huge world players such as France, Holland and Germany, it’s easy to see why Belgium has never quite been a tourist hotspot, however in recent years, it has started to slowly-but-surely become a favourite destination for city breaks, particularly in Bruges, Brussels or Ghent.

About Belgium

Rich in culture, steeped in history and graced with some of the most beautiful cities in Europe, there is so much to discover in Belgium.

Belgium’s Flanders region pays tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives during the wars, with cemetaries and battlefield sites scattered across the region. One of the best-known cities for this is Ypres, with memorials such as the Menin Gate dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives.

If you’re looking for food hotspots, you’ll be in the right place. There are countless chocolate shops all over Belgium but you could also indulge in some croquettes, waffles or moules et frites, accompanied by one of Belgium’s famous beers such as Duvel or Timmermans.
