Key Points for Planners

Belgium is like a kumquat—small, surprising, and bursting with flavor. Friendly, multilingual, and engaging, it’s a superb choice for groups because it’s densely packed with an exceptional array of diverse experiences within (or within reach of) its major cities.

Key Locations

  • Antwerp
  • Bruges
  • Brussels
  • Ghent
It’s possible to attend a medieval festival, cavort in a castle, peruse a fine art museum, and find a new best friend in the world’s diamond trading capital—all in one busy day. Antwerp and Brussels offer the high life and the nightlife, the culture and the arts, 35 UNESCO World Heritage sites, museums, and architectural delights. Its museums display Old World Belgian masters like Rubens and Van Dyck as well as its modern era painters like surrealist René Magritte.
Smaller, picturesque towns like Ghent and Bruges provide a chance to escape from the modern world and time-travel through the sights and sounds of medieval times. Truly, there’s no more charming way to sightsee than from a boat wending through the town’s canals, unless perhaps it’s from a romantic perch in a horse-drawn carriage.

Belgium engages all five senses. Restaurants are plentiful, affordable, and decidedly European. Follow the scent of Belgium waffles baking while on a morning walk or refresh yourself on a hot afternoon with a pint of any of the country’s 1,000 (yes, 1,000) varieties of Belgian beer.
