What to see and do in Belgium

As ever, if you can’t see it here then we can still plan it for you.

Artistry in Antwerp

Antwerp is Belgium’s epicentre for art, fashion and textiles. This is where the Antwerp Six made a radical breakthrough in catwalk fashion and inspiring the designers of today. Het Eilandje, the city’s oldest port, now brims with architectural masterpieces, boutiques and trendy restaurants, some uniquely set within converted warehouses. Explore the exhibitions at Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) before heading upstairs for panoramic views paired with Michelin-star dining.

The Battlefields of Belgium

There is more to discover outside the cities of Belgium. Visit Ypres for the sombre WWI war memorial of Flanders Fields, and the battle of Waterloo, where Napoleon met his final defeat. Take a whirl on a Vespa around the villages and beautiful hills of Flemish Ardennes, or for thrilling motor sports, the town of Spa hosts the iconic Formula One Belgian Grand Prix.

Beer in Brussels

From pale larger and golden ale to cherry beer and Lambic brew; Belgium is renowned all over the world for its tasty classics – and Belgian beer culture even features on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. In Brussels, with a professional beer guide by your side, we’ll take you to the best places to pick up a pint, before a special workshop and tasting session to get up to speed on the country’s finest. You’ll leave full bags of the delicious Trappist.

The best of Belgium


Nothing says business in the front, party in the back quite like Brussels.

This city has transitioned into a playground for creatives and foodies alike. Gastronomy takes a sizeable slice, with fine dining, master chocolatiers and beer cafés all showcasing artisanal methods. After a heritage fix around Brussels’ grand monuments and buildings, the sprawling murals of the Comic Strip Route are well-worth a visit. From Tintin to The Smurfs, the iconic characters created here highlight the capital’s creativity.


Where canals gracefully curve through its charming centre.

Here you’ll find brewhouses neatly tucked away between grand castles and green parks surrounded by picturesque streets. Experience a private beer tasting by the canal, then take a guided tour through the charming Market Square and across the Minnewater Bridge to Michelangelo’s statue of Madonna of Bruges. Detour along the way to Bruges’ top chocolatiers as you sample a tantalising selection of world-leading artisanal chocolates and truffles, before moving onto the simply irresistible waffle houses. We hope you have your sweet-tooth ready.


Ghent’s bold personality has made its mark on Belgium’s must-see list.

The younger generation has greatly dominated its delicious layers of food and culture, championing trendy hangouts all over, from the former red-light district to the genever micro-distilleries. This traditional urban spirit goes hand in hand with Ghent’s fascinating history and béguinages. 1898 The Post is our top choice of hotel for its perfect pairing of heritage with modern luxury. Spend an afternoon cruising along the waterways of the Old-Leie river before mooring by the quaint riverside restaurants for a spot of lunch in this enchanting city.
