Belgium is a land of good cultural, artistic, architectural and gustatory surprises, which a tourist guide to Belgium will try to show. On the shores of the North Sea, we discover the coastline and its memories of the Belle Époque, which transport us through the sweetness of Paul Delvaux's paintings after tasting a grilled sole. Then, we descend to Bruges the Legendary by forking through the Westhoek Natural Park and the cultural and natural sites marked by the First World War. Then it is Ghent and its architectural jewels, its medieval canals, a castle on the water... Before leaving Flanders, it is of course necessary to make a detour to Antwerp and its own identity. Limburg and its mining past will also attract curious visitors to the heart of the mines and Flemish Brabant will seduce beer and brewery lovers. And now Brussels is already showing its snout! Surrealism, Art Nouveau, temple of the comic strip, capital of Europe. Finally, more discreet in its communication but without having less to offer, Wallonia is undoubtedly worth a long visit. Waterloo and its lion's hill, Binche and its world-famous carnival, Namur and its citadel with its great paces, Dinant and its elegant rock... And how not to mention Liège, the ŽCité ArdenteŽ which houses in its heart offbeat artists, divine waffles. Finally, Bastogne and its commemorative sites on the Second World War thrill the Ardennes. Wherever you are in Belgium, the Kingdom promises a holiday without fuss.

When to go to Belgium?

The best time to travel to Belgium is between June and September, when temperatures become more pleasant and rains less frequent. February, for carnivals, and December, for Christmas markets, can also be the subject of a few days getaway. Belgium means folklore and tradition. Be sure to check the dates of the festivities in the cities you are visiting. Some parades sometimes cause heavy traffic jams in transport, such as during carnivals. As a worthy European capital: it is preferable to avoid the car to travel around Brussels on European summit days in particular.
