Trip Report Villages of Wallonia

Jump to last reply

Many people visiting Belgium think only of the cities -- Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, etc. Obviously they are all worth seeing, but some of you are driving, and this is the perfect opportunity to get off the beaten track and see some of the charm of the tiny villages. I was in eastern Belgium last week, which normally gets short shrift on the travel sites since the famous towns are not-a-number-one-attraction Liège, only-for-formula-one-fans Spa and special-for-war-buffs Bastogne. In other words, not much of interest to most people. But if you scratch the surface, there are some great little places to see, although you might need a GPS to find some of them.

Frankly, my interest was piqued after coming across a mention of the association of "the most beautiful villages of Wallonia" and then checking out the website. I only had one free day to see things -- leaving from Luxembourg and planning to sleep in Reims the next night. But I was very happy with what I saw and I will definitely seek out some more of these villages in the future.

Here is the photo report that I made about it: http://tinyurl.com/h5d8lbg
