In the country of waffles, chocolates and chips

Belgium | Belgium is not only an ideal travel destination because of its pretty holiday homes but also because of its culinary delicacies. It is not only known for its tasty chocolates but also for Belgian maritime delicacies such as delicious mussels as well as being the home of chips. Therefore you will find in every town nearly on every corner a chip shop that offers those golden delicacies with a choice of an incredible amount of different sauces. The Belgian national dish is mussels with chips – and in Brussels you can find “Maison Antoine” at the Place Jourdan which is said to be the best chip shop in the world.

Next to chips and chocolate Belgium is also renowned for its beer. After all there are more than 300 breweries in the small Benelux country. Typical are the strong abbey beers or beers with fruity flavours. In the summer when served chilled they are the ideal refreshment after a long cycling tour.
However the absolute highlight and best reason for a holiday in Belgium are Belgian waffles. Whether prepared in a softer Brussels style or the sweeter Liège style served with fruit and/or chocolate they are an absolute treat with potential to turn into an addiction.

In Belgium you can spend a great holiday along the coast or in the Ardennes. The seaside has several seaside resorts such as Bredene, De Haan or De Panne that provide great relaxation and entertainment. The low mountain range region close to the German border on the other hand offers beautiful landscapes and many options for long hiking and cycling tours. Here you can also find the health resort Spa which became the epitome for wellness and relaxation baths across the globe. For motorsports enthusiasts more interesting than the healing springs and baths will be the legendary race course of Spa-Franchorchamps. The seven kilometre circuit winds through the Ardennes and is the annual venue of the Belgian Grand Prix.

Also a must for the itinerary is the region around Brussels. Discover the capital with its many sights, such as the Manneken Pis or the Atomium. Other cities worth visiting are the picturesque Bruges or the diamond city Antwerp. Alternative attractive destinations are Ghent, Liége, Charleroi or Hasselt.

    “The first time that I try a city break. I think that there seemed little dirty on the streets. Garbage / bottles / cans, etc. stood at the roadside. It is a mess, but otherwise beautiful surroundings. Funny facades doors and other quirky thing.”

    “Bus stop very close (about 2 minutes on foot), several bus connections to the center of Ghent; Timetable evening however "thinned "
    for Gent-Dampoort Railway Station is only 3 bus stops (or about 15 - 20 minute walk.), from there good connections in other Flemish towns. Train rides are cheap!
    Shops for daily needs are very close”

    “The environment is getting used to, especially if you come from another country and have never been there. One should not expect a holiday paradise, but the austere charm of a suburban harbor district. The proximity to the historic city center of Ghent etschädigt however it.”

    “I did not know Belgium before the holidays. I came with the idea to see Ostend and Bruges in particular.
    I saw them, but Ghent leaves me a much better memory, both in its architecture and hospitality. The people are friendly and we never tire of coming back and in this city. My wife and I rarely as market during this week, but we were referring to with pleasure in this city.”
