The Best Weekend Trips to Flanders – Belgium

Leuven city center and amazing architecture

After living in the Netherlands during the last six years, my favourite weekend trips from the Netherlands are still to Flanders. That charming region of Belgium has it all: cute historic towns, wonderful artists, a fantastic chocolate production, delicious food and some great beers. Being so close to the Netherlands, it could be a great and safe location to travel from the Netherlands in the post-Covid 19 time. After exploring it extensively during the last few years, here are my recommendations for some perfect weekend trips to Flanders.

Celebrating the Year of Bruegel in Belgium

Angels becoming demons, fish with a belly full of smaller fish, spiders playing the instruments and all the different kind of monsters painted in a most creative way… All of them could be found on Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s paintings and drawings. 2019 marks 450 years since the artist’s death and many museums and cultural institutions are marking the year of Bruegel in Belgium by organising some interesting exhibitions and event.
