Belgium

The homeland of the Flemish and Walloons is as attractive as its neighbors Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France. The Kingdom of Belgium borders the North Sea and is definitely worth a visit.

Did you know that Belgium is only about three-quarters the size of Switzerland, but has so many more inhabitants?

Flat country, the highlands of the Ardennes in the southeast and the North Sea coast. The picturesque villages and small towns promise a great travel experience. The Kingdom is a founding member of the European Economic Community (EEC), the predecessor of today's EU. In the capital, Brussels, is the headquarters of the European Union and the seat of NATO. Together with the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Belgium forms the union of the Benelux countries. The multilingualism of the country with Dutch-speaking north, French-speaking south, the bilingual capital in the center and a small German-speaking area in the east leads again and again to conflicts. Nevertheless, the Belgians are an uncomplicated and hospitable people. Whether you are inland or on the coast, you will find names that are reminiscent of recent history; for historically interested an absolute treat.

In the charming capital of Belgium, besides the famous beers, dedicate yourself to the imposing facades of the Grand Place and the "Eiffel Tower of Brussels", the 102-meter-high Atomium. Have fun discovering!

Gent

Gent

Almost a third of Ghent's 265,000 inhabitants are students. So it's no wonder that the city is young and innovative despite its historic backdrop. Regional, sustainable and veggie cuisine is a top priority. Time-honored buildings such as the Grafenburg, the Belfry and the cathedral can be enjoyed on a stroll along the canals. This is best done in the dark, when the Ghent lighting plan comes into play and everything is atmospherically illuminated. The highlight at the end: the Lamb of God Altar by the Van Eyck brothers is a must-see during any visit to Ghent.

Bruges
Bruges

An entire city center as a UNESCO World Heritage Site: you don't need more reasons to visit Bruges. But of course there are also the picturesque canals, the delicious chocolates and the top-class museums. Lovers of music and architecture are also drawn to the Concertgebouw. Bruges' concert hall is as impressive for its appearance as it is for its varied program. And then there is the De Halve Maan brewery, which transports its beer through the city using its own pipeline.
