BELGIUM Tourism

There are few places that feel more in the heart of Europe than this, a multilingual country smack-bang in the middle of Western Europe that Dutch-speaking Flemish in the north call Belgie, and French-speaking Walloons in the south call La Belgique. Indeed, it’s this north-south, cultural and linguistic divide that makes this unusually intimate country with such dreary wet weather so unexpectedly fascinating. Amble in the shade of sensual art nouveau architecture in its capital; give a nod to the EU headquarters; surrender to the sweet seduction of Europe’s finest chocolate; have a ball in Antwerp’s avant-garde fashion and dance clubs; down a fine local beer or three; and know this is what Belgians north and south call the good life.
