Belgium

Brussels is one of the forgotten capitals of Europe to go to on a city trip. You hear London, Paris, Amsterdam and Rome all the time, but people reacted even kind of surprised when I told them I was going to visit Brussels. Most people think of Antwerp, Ghent of Bruges when traveling to Belgium. Brussels feels like to have the position of the underdog. You can probably imagine how they reacted when I told them I was going to visit Brussels again for a second time one month later.

The Netherlands is just a stone's throw away from Belgium, so visiting Belgian cities has always been easy and fun to do for the Traveltomtom team. After visiting Brussels, Antwerp and Bruges, travel writer Ashley had set her mind on traveling to Ghent. After visiting Bruges in Summer 2021, people told us, if you liked Bruges then you should really visit Ghent. We were told Ghent was even nicer and one of the best places to visit in Belgium.

 

Even though we only live a 2,5 hour drive away from Bruges, we had never visited this beautiful city before. Bruges is a feast for the eyes and the mouth. There is so much to see, you won’t even get time to put your camera away. Plus, with over 60 chocolate stores, Bruges is a true chocolate city. Let us help you plan your next Bruges citytrip.
