For a family holiday

Bruges, with its magnificent medieval charm, is an excellent choice for family outings – explore city sights, take a leisurely boat ride, or indulge in some delectable chocolate treats. Coastally-aligned Oostende is another great suggestion for a family-oriented beach holiday.

Antwerp's romantic flair makes it a favourite for couples. Explore dazzling diamond markets, elegant fashion boutiques, and cosy cafes. Alternatively, opt for a countryside retreat amidst the tranquil rolling hills of the Ardennes.

For a holiday with friends

A jaunt to Brussels is perfect for a friendly get-together. Discover its vibrant art scene, gastronomical delights and enjoy its pulsating nightlife. The lesser-trodden paths of Liege, boasting a thriving coffee culture and impressive landmarks, is another worthy option to consider.

When to Visit

Belgium's moderate and temperate maritime climate makes it a practical destination all year round, with each season offering its own distinct charm. The busiest period is from May to September where days are longer and warmer, making it an ideal time to discover Belgium's outdoor attractions and festivals.

Autumn offers a quieter yet no less delightful visitation period. The golden hues of foliage add a distinctive charm to the cities and countryside alike. February's relatively subdued crowd presents an attractive proposition for those seeking a cosy winter get-away and you might even get the chance to join in the festivities of carnival season. Regardless of when you choose to visit, Belgium is bound to present a memorable setting for your holiday.
