Save Place
Domaine de Cambron, B-7940 Brugelette, Belgium
A former Cistercian Abbey doesn't seem a likely place to find elephants, giraffes and cheetahs, but that's exactly where you'll find Pairi Daiza Zoo and Botanical Garden. This 55-hectare (140-acre) park is one of Wallonia‘s top attractions and...

Chemin du Meunier 26, 6941 Ozo, Belgium
I love cheese. I also love goats. So when I learned of a dairy goat farm just outside of Durbuy, Belgium, open to the public, I had to visit. The Ozo Goat Farm consists of around 200 happy Alpine goats. They produce delicious cheeses available to...

Koningin Astridplein 20-26, 2018 Antwerpen, Belgium
With its super-convenient location, right beside Antwerp's central train station, there's no excuse not to visit the Antwerp Zoo. The zoo is very well maintained despite its age (circa 1853) and city-centre location. The animal habitats are...

Rue de la Sablonnière 2, 5503 Dinant, Belgium
While fields of sheep, cattle and horses are common sights in rural Belgium, you may do a double-take while passing by L'Autrucherie du Pont d'Amour, near Dinant. Yes those giant birds are ostriches (and a few emus, rheas and cassowaries). The...

Rue du Château 30, 7021 Mons, Belgium

Contrary to popular belief, the Battle of Waterloo took place in Belgium and not in England. The battle took place back on June 18th, 1815 and if most don't know who won, they at least know who lost. Every year the battle is celebrated but on...

Square de l'Atomium, 1020 Bruxelles, Belgium
I wasn't sure what to think when I first saw a picture of the Atomium in a Belgium guidebook, but it turned out to be one of the coolest kitschy tourist attractions I've ever visited. The Atomium was built for the World's Fair hosted by Brussels...

7070 Le Roeulx, Belgium
In spring, lots of forests in Belgium get covered in bluebells. You can see them in different places as you drive on the highway. This particular spot is in Le Roeulx and I think it's even better that the more famous one in Halle. It is right by a...

Bondgenotenlaan 108, 3000 Leuven, Belgium
Paying a wee visit to the Bittersweet Chocolatier, while visiting Leuven, is a must! Chocolate is everywhere in Belgium but chocolate with a twist is more difficult to find. The chocolate masters at Bittersweet are doing just that, giving...

Waterloo, Belgium
The reenactment takes place every year in Waterloo. This year it was in June and I could tell by the complexity of it all that it's a big thing in Belgium and people are really committed to portray a realistic picture of the real Battle of...
Save Place
8400 Ostend, Belgium
One of the main reason we go to Oostende is so that the kids, and us, can ride the cars and bicycles they have available for rent on the boardwalk. A lot of places offer them, and the variety of vehicles is pretty large. You can rent electric or...
Save Place
Bruges, Belgium
Mini ice sculpted Bruges at the The Snow & Ice Sculpture Festival Bruges 2013, Belgium. It's -6C inside and all worth it. It looks to me like the exhibit is a tad larger than in past years. The main theme this year is Disney's Frozen but my...
