The Fervent City

Although decidedly industrial on the outskirts, Liege also boasts impressive architecture.
Change things up with these side-trips from Liege: Z33 (in Hasselt), High Fens (in Eupen) and Sint Leonarduskerk Zoutleeuw (in Zoutleeuw). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Musee communal de Herstal, brush up on your military savvy at 101 Airborne Museum Le Mess - Bastogne, walk around Parc de la Boverie, and look for gifts at Chocolaterie S. Themans.

Belgium travel guide

Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Monuments
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
