If your travels bring you to coastal Bruges, book a canal tour in this “Venice of the North.” You can also view six centuries of Belgian and Flemish paintings at the Groeningemuseum and climb the iconic Belfry’s 366 steps for a panorama of the city.
Further inland, Ghent serves as a picture book for Belgium architecture. Our accommodations make it easy to visit the medieval fortress of Gravensteen or the Gothic St Baafskathedraal. When viewing the Patershol area’s many 17th-century homes, take note of the street: design has remains unchanged since the 15th century.
In the capital city—Brussels, Belgium—hotel guests can enjoy both the latest fashions at Royal St Hubert Galleries and a touch of history at nearby Waterloo, the site of Napolean’s greatest defeat.
All this adventure is bound to make you hungry, so see the country from a different angle: your plate. For a taste of Belgium, our hotel’s guests should start with three big treats that originated here: chocolate, waffles and French fries (yes, these “French” favorites were created here). To wash it all down, reach for a beer from one of six Trappist breweries in the country or local Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s biggest brewer by volume.
