See great museums such as the Magritte, dedicated to Belgium’s famous surrealist painter. In addition, historic Bastogne, made famous by the Battle of the Bulge in WWII.
Ask a Belgian where they like to travel within their country, many will tell you about the city of Ghent.
The historic center of Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is closed to cars, making it easily explored on foot.
It’s an impressive city, stunningly beautiful and culturally active, that you can also explore by boat along quiet canals.
Just remember that “If It’s Tuesday This Must Be Belgium” was a comedic spoof of American travelers.
It was not a suggested itinerary for the rest of us.
Still, more than 400 years after the birth of this brilliant painter, it’s still possible to see the extent to which Rubens left his mark on the city.
