Situated in the heart of Western Europe, a hotel break in Belgium offers everything from rolling hills and romantic medieval cities to haute cuisine and the country’s legendary beer.
Thanks to its accessibility and the availability of cheap flights from many other European countries, it has never been easier to enjoy a hotel break in Belgium. Located at the crossroads of Europe’s Germanic and Romance cultures, Belgium offers delicious cuisine that reflects the country’s rich and diverse heritage, and is world-renowned for its remarkable array of beers. On a weekend hotel break in Belgium’s vibrant capital, Brussels, visitors can admire the baroque and gothic splendour of the guild houses on the Grand Place, the atmospheric cobbled streets and culinary delights of Rue des Bouchers and the neoclassical Royal Palace, home of the Belgian King. With a wide range of hotel accommodation in Belgium’s cities to suit every budget, other places of interest include the romantic city of Bruges, a popular tourist destination thanks to its charming canals and perfectly-preserved medieval architecture, and the nearby university town of Ghent, which combines its own medieval beauty with a lively nightlife and vibrant cultural scene. Belgium also offers plenty for visitors looking for an active holiday; the stunning Ardennes region is ideal for scenic hiking or kayaking trips, while an extensive, car-free network of national bicycle paths is perfect for exploring the country’s natural beauty on a picturesque bike tour.
