Touristinformation about Belgium
Belgium is a country located in Western Europe. Tourists appreciate that Belgium is situated between France, Germany, Luxembourg, and Netherlands- which are also popular tourist attractions. Tourists appreciate the location, but are glad to visit Belgium because of what it has to offer- from Belgium chocolate to authentic foreign cuisines.
Belgium, like most parts of Europe, experiences a good amount of rainfall- and has rather mild winters and summers. Belgium has several festivals around the year, usually based around music or celebrations. For instance, the Gentse Feesten is a festival that features many types of music, parties, performances, and lasts for an astounding ten days. This is by far the biggest street festival in Belgium, but there are many others scattered throughout the calendar year.
By far, some of the best attractions in Belgium involve restaurants, bars, and eating establishments. Belgium is famous for its chocolate- since it holds a very high standard in its creation. Many types of restaurants in Belgium cater to foreign tastes- American, French, Thai, Mexican, and much more. This can give travelers of all types a taste of home, or give a great opportunity to those who wish to try something new. Beer in Belgium is also held as something a step above other beers, and even holds hundreds of varieties to choose from.
Belgium is considered to be a very safe country, with only few exceptions. It is recommended that common sense be used, however. It should also be noted that Belgium citizens usually do not talk about politics. It is considered disrespectful to try and impose a political idea on another person, and it can easily lead to a fight if one is not careful. Following a little common sense and having a good polite manner can make a trip to Belgium carefree- usually the only uncontrollable risk is influenza, which likes to especially become active in colder seasons in Europe.
For tourists, Belgium is a prime location to visit- as tourists will find that Belgium gratefully welcomes visitors. Three official languages are supported- Dutch, French, and German. Depending on the location, languages may or may not be thoroughly known. English, for instance, is fairly well-spoken in all parts of Belgium- but visitors will find that many of the locations populated by elderly citizens will be far less likely to know English. However, most tourists will be glad to see that many restaurants, hotels, and tourist services will be glad to communicate in more than one language.
Belgium is probably one of the easier places to visit in Europe, if a trip throughout Europe is planned. It is very well situated between a few other tourist locations, so there is little detour while passing through the area. The added benefit of chocolate beer and other specialties also make the trip to Belgium very worthwhile indeed. Tourists will be glad to know that there is little that can be sad that counts against Belgium - the added protection, safety, and lack of risk with foreign diseases make it perfect for a trip of any type.
