Nestled south of Holland, Belgium may be considered small in size, but its offerings are anything but diminutive. Embarking on the rivers of Belgium promises a tapestry of diversity. Experience the enchanting center of Ghent, known as "De Kuip" on a city tour, or venture to the medieval Water Castle Gravensteen to uncover hidden gems and notable highlights. Antwerp, a global hub for diamond trading, stands out as a treasure trove in itself. Another gem is Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where medieval lanes and canals transport you to the Venice of the North, eliciting admiration and indulgence. And let's not forget the unforgettable pleasure of Belgian chocolate. Exploring the richness of Belgium, where small size belies grand experiences.

Ghent, Belgium

Explore one of Belgium's most attractive cities, steeped in a rich heritage of medieval structures. Take a stroll through the picturesque center, where you can admire the bell tower with its 54 carillons or visit St. Bavo's Cathedral. The highlight of any visit is the impressive Gravensteen Castle from the 12th century, the only remaining medieval water castle with a nearly intact defense system in Flanders.


Antwerp, Belgium

Whether exploring museums or strolling through trendy shopping streets, Antwerp, the vibrant metropolis on the banks of the Scheldt River, is always worth a visit. Famous as the former Diamond City, Antwerp still sparkles in historical splendor. The Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady is likely a must-visit for every traveler - and rightfully so! Belgium's largest Gothic church houses precious treasures, including works by Rubens, 15th-century wall paintings, and much more.

Trip to the "Venice of the North"

Bruges, the "Venice of the North", enchants with romantic canals, Gothic architecture, and medieval charm. It's no wonder that UNESCO has recognized the entire historic center as a World Heritage Site. Stroll through the medieval labyrinth of alleys and canals, visit the historic Town Hall, and savor Belgian chocolate at the Grand Place. However, the city's history truly comes to life at the Basilica of the Holy Blood, where drops of Jesus Christ's blood are said to be preserved. Bruges is a timeless gem, revealing history and romance in every corner.


Brussels, Belgium

Discover Brussels, the capital of Belgium, renowned for its rich culture and historical landmarks. The green district of Leaken hosts the impressive Atomium and the expansive Royal Palace. In the city center, you'll marvel at the imposing Cathedral of Notre Dame and the striking EU District with its distinctive buildings. Let yourself be enchanted by the Royal Residence and the Justice Palace, contributing to the architectural diversity of the city.
