Belgium Travel Guide
The ultimate guide to the coolest things to do and see when traveling in Belgium
I like to say that Belgium is weird. It’s this small little country but with a whole lot of culture. The capital, Brussels, is not just the capital of Belgium, but also the de facto center of European politics.
Because of that, you get this diverse and international mix of cultures, with the already unique and unusual Belgian culture. It’s a great little European country for urban exploration. Start here with my basic Belgium travel tips, or jump down below to read my latest Belgium travel blogs.
