Belgium Tour Guide. Tourism. Vacation Packages. Brussels Travel Guide, Antwerpen Travel Guide Brussels, Belgium is split into three regions; the Walloon and Flemish sectors and the Brussels-Capital Region. Belgians in the southern Walloon region speak French and/or German dependent on the location, the Flemish community speaks Dutch, the small capital region is decidedly multi-lingual, with English spoken to some extent across the country. The three communities differ markedly in regards to culture, but all welcome visitors. History buffs will be in heaven, with traces of powerful dynasties that held the country during the medieval period still visible everywhere, especially in the town of Bruges, where Belgium’s 14th century ‘Golden Age’ is visibly remnant. The vibrant capital city of Brussels isn’t just a hub for European politicians; it’s also a center for culture, theater, great dining, nightlife and shopping, and holds guilded houses, Gothic buildings, a castle, the Royal Palace, as well as post-modern structures. Ghent is another place to head if magnificent architectural treasures appeal to you. The ‘Belgium is flat’ brigade may be surprised to learn that forests, caves, and cliffs of the Ardennes lie within the country’s borders. This spectacular region is home to deer, wild boar, and lynx, as well as charming little villages, ancient castles, and the fine city of Nemur, set along the River Meuse. Nemur is a great base for exploring the beauties of the Ardennes. The national art museums in Brussels and Antwerp display works by famous Belgian masters, and Brussels boasts 80 museums of all kinds, including a number covering both World Wars. Accommodation across the country varies from luxury five-star hotels to mid-range country inns and self-catered apartments. Standards are high, as are prices in the better Brussels hotels, but are surprisingly reasonable outside the urban centers. Dining out is popular and there’s a huge choice of cuisines available at all price points. Belgian cuisine has its regional variations and is filling and delicious, with seafood a favorite and mussels a specialty. Lovers of chocolate know full well that the Belgian version reign supreme, with impossible-to-resist chocolate shops on nearly every corner. It is also one of the best cities for beer.
