Advice from belgian friends!

Hello everyone. From September I will have the opportunity to live in Liege for about 6 or 7 months with the erasmus program. Is there any Belgian among you readers? Please recommend experiences and places you most love to do or visit in your country. I read that there is a rail pass that allows you to visit 10 Belgian destinations of my choice at an affordable price! I am looking forward to September.

    Eww why go to the wallonia for anything other than the Ardennes

  2. 3 months ago

    Hey hey i lived there for 6 years (in wallonia)
    there is the places i recommend you to visit, here is my favorite list:

    Gent/Gand: very nice city, a lot of medieval heritage and buildings, cool places to hang out

    Brugge/Bruges : small but lovely town, good places to eat

    Dinant: Beautiful city, very nice landscape and nice hiking spots, and Namur is not far from Dinant, it's the capital/heart of wallonia so i suggest you to do both of them in a day if you want

    Kortijk/Courtrai: a city that has nice natural parks and cool places for hanging out and lot of activities in the town, very underestimated city

    Halle/hal: i suggest you to visit the forest, in spring very beautiful

    Bruxelles: More of hanging spot for hangover and drinking with friends, the park of la cambre is quite nice, cool museums (especially flemish painters) and there is a lot of second hand store, and a lot of festival/events

    Tournai/Doornik: Cool town but you can encounter weird people there (drunk/drug addicts) i suggest to come during the carnival, it's like a big event there
    but i suggest you to visit Lille, its a beautiful Town in france and not far from Tournai, there is a train that goes there, i prefer Lille tahn Tournai, if you're under 26 you can have a reduction (not compatible withe the free tickets because of the border)

    Antwerp/Anvers: too big, and more or less like Gand, very expensive

    Charleroi: sad town same problems as Tournai, but interesting architecture and story, but recently it has a lot of renovations

    That's it, and yes consider doing a trip to the Ardennes !
    and also rent a bike !!! it will help you a lot in the Flanders region

    hope it will help you 🙂

      Hello, sighsee, going on a three to four day quick visit to Bruxelles with gf. Both poorfag uni students but saved up to enjoy a nice mini-vacation. We're both sighsee and enjoy arts/museums, not that big into restaurants, really like cool mini bistros and cafes that are not riddled with libtard le thinkers, any places to visit/avoid? I'm very inexperienced with travel so I'm sure to get trapped in a tourist trap I believe, gf is more experienced but I don't want to leave all the pressure on her. Thanks for the advice, anons.

      I appreciate your post, if we went for longer and maybe had a car, I'd consider visiting some of those places

        Nice, but yeah your idea of finding a true and honest bistro/cafe is not the best idea in Bruxelles, and in every major big cities, you should consider going outside bxl and go to smaller towns in wallonia, but hopefully there are some in bxl that kept their traditional vibes, consider looking up "Brasseries" on google 😉

        Belgium is a very small country so you can have a train ride for less than 1 hour to visit other cities

          Thank you, anon 🙂 I appreciate the advice, especially the brasseries, they look really nice <3
          Also, question for other anons - how far will I get with english in Bruxelles/Belgium? I can't really speak french

  3. 3 months ago

    I'll be teaching English near La Rochelle for seven months starting in October. if you're planning on going into France we could hang out

      Well, I saw on google maps and it is quite far from Liège. In any case, I wish you the very best of luck!

  4. 3 months ago

    I had to do a stopover there in my last trip, and I can confirm that all that other sighsee anons say here is real.
