My good friend Hans De Keulenaer has created a list of 59 towns and cities to visit in Belgium. There’s now no excuse for wondering where to go on any weekend of the year!
They vary from the large well-known cities like Gent, Antwerp and Bruges to small, sometimes out-of-the-way or lesser known towns like Maaseik, Hoogstraten, Saint-Hubert or Huy. Each has a short description and a link to the town’s tourist office.
Coincidentally, Hans has a blog that is also called Discovering Belgium (on Blogspot) and is well worth a visit if you need some more ideas of where to go in Belgium.
Here is his list of 59 towns and cities in Belgium. Enjoy!
Thanks Tim! Hope you and the family are well.
Bravo how Hans found an adjective for each city…
Yes, impressive. They should be adopted by the tourist offices.
Nice list. I’ve been to only 24 of these towns (and live in one of them), that’s not even half of them! So much to see in this tiny country… It’s funny how to foreigners the distances are so small but to us Belgians, a place an hour away is far away! 😀
Yes, and of course it’s customary to travel more in a condensed week of vacation than when you have decades in front of you to explore these places.
Hi Denzil – You’ve already “sold me” on visiting Belgium – – but this very nice list gives me a good idea, a town-a-week for a year-and-a-month. Now if I can just persuade my bosses to grant a thirteen month sabbatical.
Send me their names and emails. I’ll have a word with them. After all, you’ve been working darn hard and you deserve a break. While I’m there I’ll mention that you need a rise too. And a Tesla. 13 months? Let’s go for 24 and have a party!
🙂 How did you know I want a Tesla!? Although driving around Milwaukee, I wonder if just running the heat & defroster would exhaust the battery.
You just sound like a Tesla kinda guy Robert. How do batteries get on in freezing weather I wonder?
Maybe I’d better stick with an older, coal-fired Rolls, a Silver Shadow would do nicely, thank you.
Handy to hang on to!
You live in a marvelous place. I’m jealous. Our taught history does not seem to go back much further than 1492 for some strange reason.
Well I realized my American history is pretty nonexistent. Never covered it at school. So I am putting that to rights. Just finished biography of Truman and am now on John Adams. Fascinating.
You have certainly skipped around, but both are important characters.
The difference between these two and the current one is huge.
Yes, those two understood responsibility and accountability. The current one understands he wants only favorable publicity.
Perhaps we should consider a year long holiday in Belgium. It would take us a year to thoroughly enjoy all these pretty places.
Lots of places I’ve never heard of on here, Denzil, and some of them very lovely, from what I can see. 🙂 🙂
Still many many for me yet to explore Jo!
Would love to visit every single one, great post ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€
