Top attractions in Belgium
The capital of Brussels has some beautiful sights to see, including picturesque squares and buildings. The Grand Place should be at the top of anyone’s list, it’s the city’s large square which is surrounded by wonderful architecture which will take you back in time, some of them date back to the 14th-century. It’s a wonderful place to explore during the night time as the buildings which encircle the square are lit up and really makes this beautiful square.
Bruges is another quaint and charming city in Belgium, which attracts many tourists due to its great sites and Christmas markets. Visit Markt which is the city’s market square which like Brussels, has many historical buildings surrounding it. It’s a great place to bag a bargain with nice little gifts, or even just to have a walk around and admire the stark architecture.
Antwerp is a big city in Belgium, in fact it is the most populous in the country. It’s located on the River Scheldt and is very close to the Dutch border. Antwerp is home to one of the biggest ports in the world, ranking 2nd within Europe and hitting the top 20 globally. It is a multicultural city which boasts stunning cathedrals and museums. When in Antwerp, take a visit to Museum aan de Stroom, situated along the River Scheldt, it is the largest museum in Antwerp and is quite a recent cultural landmark, opening in 2011. Here, you can learn a whole lot more about the city of Antwerp.
Belgium isn’t particularly known for its coastline, more so for its charming and chic cities and towns. Nevertheless, a visit to Belgium’s coast can be quite surprising. Ostend, a city on the country’s coast, does actually have a long beach and a promenade which can be great for long walks whilst admiring the views. As well as having a long beach, the Mercator is also located here which is a ship dating back to the 1930’s, however now it has been converted into a museum open to the public.
De Panne is yet another Belgian coastal town, close to its border it shares with France. It is home to a beach, but also nature reserves such as Westhoek, which is a great visit for those who love the outdoors. A trip to the top of Kykhill Dune Park will provide you with wonderful views, particularly of the Dumont Quarter and the sea. Here in De Panne, you can catch the coastal tram, which takes you further east along the Belgian coastline.
