Belgium

Nestled between Germany, France, and the Netherlands, Belgium is overlooked by many travelers...making it one of Europe's best-kept secrets. There are indeed tourists — but not as many as the country's charms merit. After all, Belgium produces some of Europe's best beer, creamiest chocolates, most beloved comic strips, and tastiest french fries. From funky urban neighborhoods to tranquil begijnhofs, from old-fashioned lace to high-powered European politics, from cows mooing in a pastoral countryside to gentrified Hanseatic cityscapes bristling with spires...Belgium delights.
