Tips to explore Belgium

Discovering Belgium aims to give you some personal tips to enjoy Belgium. Nearly 400 articles are available to read in the blog. It’s divided into sub-topics, so you can more easily find what you are looking for.

The blog contains over 180 country walks. Many of them are short, family-friendly walks (e.g. 5 to 8 km). Others are more demanding hikes up to 24 km. All are categorized per province. They include directions to the starting point, public transport access, and downloadable maps and GPX tracks.

A range of nature projects are described. Many of them are ideal to encourage children or grandchildren to connect with nature. Other categories are CastlesMuseums, or Parks & Gardens to visit in Belgium.

Under History you can find articles on a variety of topics. Flanders Fields covers events during the First World War in Belgium. In Remarkable Belgians you can discover life stories of some interesting Belgians. In My Belgium you can read the recommendations of some of Discovering Belgium’s readers.

You could also start from the tab “Where to”. Here you can choose the region you wish to explore – Flanders or Wallonia – and then select the individual province. Or you could look at the map of all places.
