Belgium offers the traveler a unique opportunity to experience both the historic beauty of Europe and the finest in contemporary music, art and nightlife. This charming country is renowned for its beers and chocolates, but there is so much more to discover on a barge cruise though the countryside and fabulous cities of Belgium.
Belgium cruises take the traveler to beautifully preserved medieval cathedrals, monasteries and castles, some of the most lovely in Europe. Belgium has the highest concentration of castles in the world! The southern, French-speaking region of Belgium especially abounds with castles and magnificent gardens.
One of the highlights of Belgium cruising is a journey through the picturesque canals flowing through the historic city of Bruges in the northern, Flemish region of the country. This medieval city, famed for its luscious chocolates and intricate lace, is a delight to explore from the many canals intersecting the city.
