And if you would like to visit Brussels, we can highly recommend a couple of places that you must not miss in Europe’s capital city. Simply ask us for details – it’s our pleasure to help make your trip as pleasant as possible. We wish you an excellent stay!
The Waterloo battlefield
On 18 June 1815, the outlines of present-day Europe were drawn on the battlefield of Waterloo. Re-live this epic battle in Napoleon’s last headquarters or in the Wellington Museum. It’s as if you were there yourself.
La Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean
The Genval Yacht Club
Pedal boats, rowing boats, kayaks, drifters and water balls (reservation requested)… The Genval Yacht Club offers a whole spectrum of activities on Genval Lake – for families, groups of friends, or cosy couples.
The Water and Fountain Museum
In the Water and Fountain Museum, young and old can learn why water is such an important but also limited source of life. The museum also shows the history of fountains (in the city, in the country, in the garden…).
The Folon Foundation
Housed in the former farmhouse of the Terhulpen Castle in the Solvay park, the Folon Foundation displays more than 500 water colours, engravings, posters and sculptures by the famous Belgian artist.

The Villers-la-Ville Abbey

Walibi and Aqualibi
Walibi is the largest amusement park in Wallonia, where more than 50 attractions and activities await you. Young and old can also enjoy themselves in the gigantic Aqualibi water park next door – in a tropical, but still refreshing, atmosphere.

The Grote Markt of Brussels

The Sint-Gertrudis collegiate church of Nijvel
The Sint-Gertrudis collegiate church is one of the oldest and largest Romanesque churches in Europe: 100 meters long and 44 meters wide, and yet the structure emanates balance and austerity. Certainly worth a visit!
