Take time to explore the city’s amazing architecture, which includes a blend of Art Nouveau buildings from the early 20th century and older palaces. A city of juxtapositions, you’ll find striking, stark concrete and glass structures alongside beautiful, ornate buildings. The food in Belgium is a delight for gastronomes. From luxurious Belgian chocolate and thick, hot waffles to fresh mussels swimming in butter and white wine, dining out is always decadent! The city comes alive after dark so whether you’re a techno fan or a jazz aficionado, there’s a night club for you.

Tips for Visiting Belgium
Take an umbrella and your waterproofs when visiting Belgium as it can be showery at any time of year. Summers (May-September) are mildly warm and pleasant so can be a good time to visit. However, this is the peak time to travel so cities can be very busy and prices may be increased to suit demand. Winters are cold in Belgium, but rarely below freezing because of the warm coastal wind. Spring or autumn may be the best time to visit when the weather is mild, and the crowds are less.
