It is no secret that Belgium is a culinary delight, offering a divine array of authentic treats including beer, chocolate and waffles. If this enough to encourage you to visit this small but charming nation, you may be enticed by the array of historical architecture, collections of fine art and fantastic cultural events that take place throughout the year.

The capital city of Brussels is home to the Grand Place-Grote Markt, which is undoubtedly home to one of the most impressive squares in all of Europe. Here, you will find many historical 300-year-old buildings decorated with fascinating intricate features and it also offers a fantastic point from which to start your exploration of this impressive city.

Mechelen is often overlooked by visitors to Belgium, but those who make the journey are rewarded with a unique combination of historical architecture with contemporary features. 16th-century houses and impressively large churches combine with fun and quirky landmarks including the Museum of Toys and the Technopolis science museum.

Antwerp is widely regarded as an international diamond capital, with more than 85% of the world’s rough diamonds being traded within the city’s Diamond District. This, however, is not the only appealing feature of Antwerp, with many cultural landmarks including the former home of Baroque painter, Peter Paul Rubens, an array of fascinating churches and a vibrant fashion scene.

Belgium’s proximity to the UK also makes it a perfect option for a long weekend. You can arrive in Bruges via an ocean cruise and enjoy a taste of Belgium in landmarks such as the towering Belfry and the must-visit Choco-Story Museum (with free samples). Wherever you would like to go and however you would like to experience it, TravelQuest can create the perfect holiday for you.
