    There are a number of Belgian cities that you definitely need to see:
    Brussels (with the Grand Place which is the nicest square in Europe!)
    Brugge (also called the Venice of the North because of its beautiful canals)

    Also, we have a beautiful small city called Durbuy in the Ardennes, which is a great place to go for beautiful walks in the middle of nature.

    If you like beer, Belgium is known worldwide for its hundreds of beers. I would suggest you follow the link below to learn more about it:

    Also, Belgium is THE country of chocolate. Our most famous chocolate maker is Pierre Marcolini. You can see his web site at the following link:
    Go to the Sablon shop location, the most prestigious one where you will taste these great chocolate creations. over 10 years ago

    Surely, Brussels besides the square ther are some nice museums. Brugge and Gent are well worth a visit. Also the city centre of Liege is nice. Hasselt is a nice city for shopping and not as expensive as Brussels or Antwerp.
    There are numerous nice small villages all over the country. over 9 years ago

    Take some time in Bruges, rent a bicycle (easy, flat riding), take an iPad and get a prepaid sim card from Base, then get lost (and never be lost at all due to the iPad's mapping).

    Wander through Bruges and find the middle of the 5 windmills. Across the street is a little cafe called (i think) Der Moller, have lunch, then ride along the canals to the tiny town of Damme for coffee. There is a nice working windmill at Damme which does not charge for a visit.

    Go past Damme on the bike trails toward Sluis, NL. Be sure to take time to wheel yourself across the canal on the free bike/pedestrian ferry (we went several times for no reason at all).

    We haven't found that one "knock out" restaurant in Bruges to go to dinner after a fun day (yet)...guess we'll go back for a third time to keep looking! over 9 years ago

    If you are driving, Dinant and Namur are worth a stop as well. Wander around the Citadel in Namur and ride up the incline to the fort/citadel above Dinant. over 9 years ago
