Things to do in Belgium

Ghent, Belgium
For centuries, large armies and vast trading networks have treated Belgium as a crossroads of northern Europe, leaving the country with a complex legacy that offers a wealth of experiences for you to explore. You could sample the country’s signature foods, like frites, waffles and artisanal chocolates, on a walking tour in Antwerp. Or, watch traditional shrimp farmers tend their crustacean flock from horseback on the beaches of Oostduinkerke.

Our carefully chosen experiences capture the essence of Belgium and cover a wide range of interests — you can explore battlefields from both World Wars, enjoy a guided sampling of the country’s renowned beers or pedal along the coastal flats of Zwin Nature Park to drink in the peaceful quiet. Tour the Diamond District, a clearinghouse for most of the world’s diamonds, and learn the art and science of gem cutting, or simply cruise along Ghent’s canals, sipping Champagne as you enjoy the cityscape.
