This is a land of fairy-tale castles with manicured estates
and cities rooted in diverse cultures. The official languages of the Brussels-Capital Region – tucked in the Flanders Region - are French and Dutch. Dutch is spoken in the Flanders Region and you will hear German and French in the Wallonia Region
. From the hands of the Flemish masters, such as Peter Paul Rubens, Belgium museums house their works of art. Many of the cities could be considered active open-air museums
with some dating back over 2000 years - such as Tongeron in the Flemish province of Limburg, and Arlson in the province of Luxembourg in the Wallonia Region. Bruges, Ghent, Tournai and Mons were built around their town centre and herald their Middle Ages heritage in their architecture.
The flat landscape of the Flanders Region is transformed into the hills and valleys of the Walloon Region.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is at its southern tip. For leisure activities, Belgium has it all. You can walk on the beaches of the North Sea
and along the trails through the forests of the Ardenne. Fun-filled themed parks, horseback riding, boating and cycling, or a game of golf can fill your holiday days with exhilarating moments.
