Travellers and activities
There is no other place where chocolate is as famous and prestigious as in Belgium, and its capital, at least as far as most chocolate aficionados are concerned, is the World Capital of Chocolate. Brussels is home to Neuhaus, the shop where the world’s first chocolates were created nearly a century ago. You can easily spend an entire afternoon in this shop choosing among the many different types and shapes of heavenly chocolates.Belgium for beer lovers
While it is a tiny nation geographically, Belgium is a global powerhouse in terms of its beer. The beer culture is so vital to the fabric of the nation that it’s officially protected by a world cultural heritage by UNESCO. Make sure to try the nation’s finest craft beers, including the award-winning Tripel Karmeliet, Affligem Blond and Chimay Blue. And of course, visit one of the many breweries, which have the uncanny quality of being located in charming cities or the idyllic countryside. Make sure to check out the brewery Espace Chimay, run by monks, which has being brewing beer since 1862, or for more mainstream Belgium beer, the fascinating Stella Artois Brewery.Belgium for hikers
.There is a wonderful variety of trekking to be had in Belgium, from the High Fens Natural Reserve with its exceptional flora and fauna, to the Semois valley, with its delightful forest which is home to stags and wild hog, and Warche, which takes you on a tour past ragged rocks and beautiful deluges. But the number one hiking destination in Belgium is the Ardennes, a wild and beautifully scenic region in the southeast corner of the country, boasting lush forests, green, rolling hills, meandering rivers, stunning caves and the quaintest of villages.
Belgium is world-famous for beer. There are over 1100 varieties of beers made in Belgium and the country often produces international award winning varieties.
