Belgium Vacation Spots

Brussels maintains a reputation for being a crossroads area for Europe, and is the capital of the European Union. The official languages are French and Dutch, though many languages are heard in the streets and social areas. The city is more than 1000 years old, and attesting to that is the variety of architectural styles found juxtaposed here: art nouveau next door to classical facades, perhaps across the street from a Gothic cathedral. Museums are also windows into the culture, such as the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, featuring 15th and 16th century Flemish paintings from each major artist. The star attraction in Brussels is the Grand’Place, a square with elaborately decorated guild houses and featuring the Hotel de Ville in Gothic style. It is a social, cultural, and civic center, with ceremonies, festivals, and a Sunday bird market. Actually, Brussels is home to a wealth of markets from fresh mussels to antiques. Visit the Place du Grand Sablon for special antique galleries and an array of delicious restaurant food. Entertainment options include classical and jazz festivals, top opera and ballet, and spirited nightclubs.

Wallonia and the Ardennes contain three major cities: Namur, Tournai, and Liege. Namur is famous for its citadel, a strategic bastion that withstood attacks and was improved and reconstructed several times. Vacationers can approach the citadel by cable car or a meandering road, and there they can see an excellent perspective on the town and two rivers. Also of note in Namur is the Treasury Priory of Oignies, featuring the 13th-century gold objects of Brother Hugo of Oignies. The Cathedral of Notre Dame stands out in Tournai with its five towers of early Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Museums like the Museum of Tapestry and the Muesum of Fine Arts here are of superior quality. Liege has a church heritage that helped it to grow into a prosperous technical community; the Palace of the Prince-Bishops is a remnant of this heritage. The Curtius Museum is actually a Mosan mansion from the 17th century. Spirited nightlife occurs in central Liege and on a river island.

The Flanders region is home to cities, canals, and quaint towns with fertile fields. Antwerp shows its history as a key trading port in the 1400’s and 1500’s through highly decorated mansions, and museums and churches that hold antique treasures. The Gothic Cathedral of our Lady contains two of local Peter Paul Rubens’s masterpiece works. Antwerp’s Diamond Museum allows visitors to realize how diamond mining and processing works, since the city provides the cut, polish, and trade of seventy percent of the world’s diamonds. Bruges is considered a medieval city, and the Belfry’s carillon from the 13th and 15th centuries still rings today. You can choose to stroll along streets, or take a boat along a canal to tour the city. Visit Ghent’s Castle of the Counts of Flanders. Leuven has an ostentatious Gothic Town Hall and one of the largest breweries globally, Interbrew. Mechelen has a vast amount of history, including the Palace of the Grand Council.
