Book online at Voyage Prive and enjoy a weekend in Belgium, the perfect place to soak up European history and culture while staying in luxurious accommodation.
Belgium is often overlooked as a holiday destination in favour of its bigger neighbours France and Germany, but this country has a lot to offer visitors and it can all be found in a relatively small area. Sitting at the crossroads of Western Europe, Belgium is steeped in history and has a fascinating culture with influences from the surrounding countries. If you go on a luxury holiday to Belgium, you can expect gorgeous hotels, excellent service, delicious food and stunning architecture. Most of the country's main towns and cities have picture-postcard centres that look like they've been pulled straight from a storybook, with Gothic buildings, quaint cafes and imposing town halls.
Belgium is a relatively small country, which means it's easy to visit various places during your stay. Most visitors' first stop is the capital, Brussels, where you can look at the Gothic architecture of the town square and visit the European Parliament. For romance and quaint surroundings, head to Bruges; sometimes called 'the Venice of the north', this is a picturesque city with canals and medieval buildings. If you like to keep busy on holiday, Antwerp is a port city with lots of cultural attractions to enjoy. You could visit the MAS museum, the Plantin-Moretus museum, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts and the zoo.
While you're appreciating the beautiful architecture and scenery, you can enjoy some of the food the country is famous for. Belgium is known for its smooth, rich, high quality chocolate, so head to one of the many chocolate shops to try some and buy plenty of gifts to take home. Belgian waffles are another must-eat - Brussels waffles are lighter and crisper than many other waffles found in Europe and are usually simply dusted with icing sugar. For those with less of a sweet tooth, mussels and boulettes (meatballs) are both popular Belgian dishes that are frequently served with fries. Be sure to order a beer with your meal, as the country has some of the finest brews in the world.
