Visits of cities



Hasselt is the capital of Limburg and is known as ‘capital of taste’, where fashion and gastronomy make you want to visit the city. Hasselt offers everything you want, you can enjoy pedestrian shopping streets in this cosy and vibrant city, stop at one of the many terraces and end your day in one of the nice restaurants. Hasselt has many sights and here you can find some of the most famous ones: The Gin museum, the Fashion museum, the Japanese garden, the largest in Europe which is over 25 years old, the beautiful Abbey of Herkenrode and the Bokrijk open-air museum will certainly meet your expectations.



The mining heritage is clearly visible in Genk. The garden districts, slag heaps, mineshafts and mine buildings all tell a unique story. C-mine, Thor Park and LABIOMISTA are also a good place for a good portion of art, culture and technology. Or get surprised by the variety of flavors in the many specialty shops and eateries in the Vennestraat and the Stalenstraat. Genk is a world city. The green border around Genk is a paradise for cyclists and hikers. On the domain of Bokrijk you walk through the Open Air Museum and the forests around. Here is also the well-known ‘Cycling through the water’ in Bokrijk. Even more nature awaits you in Kattevennen, gateway to the National Park Hoge Kempen. Various hiking routes start here. Riders can also go on the equestrian trails that run through the pine forests.



Tongeren is the oldest city in Belgium and has more to offer than you might think. Stroll along the Roman walls, wander through the oldest Beguinage in the Benelux or visit the Gallo-Roman Museum where you can dive into the city’s history. On the Grand Place not only the beautiful facade of the basilica stands out, but also the statue of Ambiorix. Ambiorix was the most famous resident of Tongeren and was given the most prominent place in the city. The imposing bronze statue of the Eburon King Ambiorix dates back to 1866 and celebrates the memorable victory over the Romans in 54 B.C.



Unpretentious Brussels is the capital of Belgium and Europe. The medieval Grand Place is indeed grand with numerous 17th century buildings and daily flower markets. Reopened in 2006, the Atomium, Brussels’ Eiffel Tower, offers fantastic views both inside and out. Architectural enthusiasts visit the Horta Museum, home to Belgian master architect Victor Horta. The clubs and bars of St. Gorik are visited throughout the year. Fish restaurants can be found in St. Katelijne. In order not to get caught up in traffic by car, it is better to explore the narrow streets on foot.
