    • Few hours to spare between Zaventem and Charlerois.

      Brussels Apr 15, 2015 at 1:14 AM

      I will be dropping a friend at Zaventem (2pm flight) and then another two friends at Charlerois (6pm flight). I don't want the "Charlerois friends" to just wait at the airport for half a day so I want to show them some more of Belgium. I have a problem though with what I can do in this time frame somewhere between those 2 airports.
      For now the best I can think of is Nivelles & Villers-la-Ville.

      Any other ideas on where to go would be appreciated. Also some advise on where to spend those few hours if it would be raining.

      Thanks in advance for any tips!

      travel pass or buy 10 tickets for short/long trip?

      Belgium Apr 4, 2015 at 11:48 AM

      I am still not sure which is worth it. I heard about the 10 trips for 76 Euro. but does it mean for example if I am going to bruge and stop by another city on the way, then I will have use 6 tickets for 2 people? for that day?

      there is also short trip 10 tickets for a price I remembered. does it only include bus trips in Brussels or anywhere in Belgium?

    • Train from Ghent to Amsterdam

      Antwerp Apr 2, 2015 at 6:19 PM

      We are about to book a train from Ghent Belgium to Amsterdam in April. It has one stopover in Antwerp to change from the IC train to Thalys train. There is only a 7 minute stopover, is this going to be enough time to get from IC train to Thalys train at Antwerp?

      tips - ideas

      Belgium Mar 28, 2015 at 3:47 PM


      We will be travelling to Belgium as part of our UK/Europe holiday in April. We will hire a car at Lille for 4 days and have booked accommodation in Yvpres. We will be arriving at Lille by Eurostar from London. (Should we book the Eurostar return ticket before we leave Australia or is it ok just to arrive at station and book). Preceding our Belgium visit we are on a cruise from Rome sailing into Anzac Cove on the morning of Anzac Day and spending two full days in the area.

      When we return to London from Belgium we have five days free, we will hire a car and thought we may head to the South Coast

      We have planned and organised the entire trip ourselves from internet and research and hope to fit in as much as we can but also want to enjoy everything and not just go, go, go. My husband is 69 and I am 66 and reasonably fit.

      Any advice/tips/ideas of any kind would be extremely welcome.

      Safe travels

      Belgium 10-journey passes

      Belgium Apr 10, 2015 at 4:14 AM

      I'm intending on purchasing a 2nd class, 10-journey pass that that The husband and I can share during our 8 days in the country, and which will cover us for just about everywhere we're going (math works). A couple of questions:

      One of our journeys involves a 6-minute change in Leuven (platform 8 to platform 3). Can we make it? If for some reason we can't, can we just take the next train as long as the final destination/type of train is the same? The instructions (which aren't exactly explicit) notes that if a mistake is made, don't cross it out - fill out the next lines - but we'll be out of space on the pass at that point.

    • Charming Places in Belgium

      Belgium Apr 20, 2015 at 12:41 PM

      Hello everyone,

      My parents will be visiting me soon in Belgium and they want me to take them to cute and charming little cities/villages to visit. They've seen all the major ones like Brouge, Gent, Antwerp, Leuven, Durbuy, Brussels, etc. Quite frankly I'm running out of places to take them :-D

      So I turn to my trusted VirtualTourist friends for help! I want my parents to have a memorable stay in Belgium as usual so all suggestions are welcome! We have a car and prepared to drive up to 3 hours each way if necessary.

      Thanks in advance for all your recommendations.

    • Aywaille weekend

      by TravellingCA Online Now Nov 16, 2014 at 1:34 AM

      Hello everyone,

      I will be spending a long weekend with friends in a rented house in Aywaille and we are wondering what to do in the area and beyond. Ideally, on one of the days we would like to discover the area we are in and on the other day we would like to go on a worthwhile excursion somewhere within an hour (or so) by car from where we are staying (perhaps on the German side).

      We would greatly appreciate your suggestions on things to do and places to visit on these two days!

      Thanks in advance :-)

      I'm coming to Liege for the Everton game on 2 October.
      Can anybody advise of good places for a few beers with the locals please?
      Most Everton fans are likely to head for the central areas - any English pubs / Irish bars.
      I'd prefer somewhere a little more obscure to mingle with locals.

      Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
