Flights to Belgium
It is hard to think of a country that suits the phrase ‘good things come in small packages’ better than Belgium, a beacon for sophistication, international variety and of course, its chocolate. A gateway country to the nations that surround it, Belgium can be overlooked by its more famous neighbours of France and the Netherlands, however, this pastiche of the two cultures has grown to form a distinct character that is worth exploring.
Get swept up in the cities of Belgium
Visit cosmopolitan Brussels, a mixture of the Art Nouveau architecture, inspired by Horta and Hankar, and striking modern buildings that have ushered this city into being one of the most international in mainland Europe. However, there are still plenty of historical buildings that anchor Brussels in the Old World; tour the Grand Palace, the Town Hall and the Cathedral of Saints Michel and Gudul.
Then there is Antwerp, the capital of the country, worth seeing for the Cathedral of Our Lady alone, this industrial port city has had a huge cultural impact on the rest of the country, and is known for its excellent museums, art galleries and one of the finest zoos in Europe.
Or find your way to magical Bruges, a town seemingly plucked from a fairytale existence, where visitors can wander its UNESCO protected cobbled streets and explore the medieval churches, like the Basilica of the Holy Blood, in perhaps one of the most picturesque places in the world.
Take a trip through the Belgian countryside
Take a journey to Namur, the French side of Belgium where the landscape is replete with turreted castles, and manicured gardens. See the birthplace of the Emperor Charlemagne in the town of Liège, banked by the Meuse River on the Dutch side of the country. Or travel to quaint Mons, recently named the European City of Culture of 2015, where its pastel coloured buildings are punctuated by medieval churches that crowd around the town’s pretty squares.

When should you go?
Belgium’s summer (June-August) is the most popular time of year to visit this country, the weather sits at an average of 23°C, and you’re less likely to be rained on in this season. However, there’s not really a bad time to visit this country, as when winter rolls around (December-February) snow dusts the pretty towns, and the lakes freeze hard enough to pop on some skates and try a true Belgian winter tradition.
