Belgium is not a big country so touring holidays are easy and low on stress. If you do travel round, you’ll find interesting landscapes with the rivers, gorges and forest of the Ardennes at odds with the rolling plains that make up much of the countryside. There are well-preserved historic cities, castles and churches dotted all over the place and wide sandy beaches along the northern Flanders Coast. Ostend is the liveliest resort. For local color on your holiday in Belgium you can’t beat Bruges, Ghent and Tournai. Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp are strongest on culture. Ghent and Antwerp have the liveliest and most varied nightlife.
