For such a small country, Belgium has a surprisingly large number of attractions—cosmopolitan cities, a staggering wealth of fine art, stunning architecture, and enough war memorials to remind visitors that Belgium’s historical roots run deep. Travelers who want to commune with nature can head to the green fields of the Ardennes for a little rest and relaxation, while fashionistas can get their kicks window-shopping in a la mode Antwerp.
