Belgium Tourism

Belgium brings to mind images of exquisite lace, fine porcelain and melt in your mouth chocolates. Shouldering a legacy rich with culture, art and history, Belgium today is not just the seasoned traveller’s delight, but also a leading commercial and political centre of the European Union as also the headquarters of NATO.

It is a country of romantic beaches along the north, rocky highlands down south and rolling green countryside in between.

Whether it is Brussels, the capital city of Belgium that beckons you with it’s blend of old and new, or industrialized Antwerp the diamond centre of the world with it’s Gothic churches and quaint cobbled streets or a visit to a lace factory in Brugge - this and more, will make you want that visit to last forever. The land of van Eyck and Rubens is as ravishing now as the masterful brush strokes that captured and immortalized it centuries ago.

The people of Belgium love animals and you will find that most households have at least one pet animal.

Ever wondered who is the versatile artist behind the comic characters in Adventures of Tin Tin? It was Belgian called Herge. This comic strip has kept readers enthralled for over 80 years and continues to do so even today. Incidentally, Belgium is the largest producer of comic books!

There are 800 kinds of beer brewed in Belgium with an average consumption of 150 litres per person per year. The Belgians really know their beer and sure can down the mellow yellow liquid!
