You can get to Belgium from all over Europe on Eurolines coaches. International busses have stopovers in Antwerp, Brussels, Leuven and Liège. Major European highways like the E-19, E-17, E-40, E-411 E-314 and E-313 pass through Belgium. There are direct trains between Brussels and major European cities that connect with domestic trains at Brussels' Gare du Midi/Zuidstation.
In Belgium, people like to say that you can get the quantity of a hearty German meal and the quality of fine French cuisine. Though Belgium is world-famous for its chocolate and beer, many other specialities come from the region as well. Belgian fries, waffles and speculoos cookies are a few of the delicious snacks that visitors indulge in while visiting Belgium. Restaurants feature mussels and fries (moules frites), Waterzoo, stoemp potato, and Salade Liégeoise. Getting hungry?
Belgium is known for its festivals. Towns and villages have festivals to celebrate everything from their region’s history to their local cheese. Enjoy the country’s lively and colorful Carnival tradition, including one of the most spectacular in Europe in the town of Binche. Summer festivals abound in July and August. For example, head to Ghent in late July for the spectacular 10-day Geentse Feestse, featuring music, dance, theatre, puppet shows, and general fun and festivities!
