After a tough year, we can’t wait to get out and explore, share a drink with friends and discover some new favourite places. Here in Belgium, we’re blessed with a wealth of fun, family-friendly and often free activities that will keep us busy all summer long, whatever the weather.

From pop-up bars for the perfect apero, to high-energy hikes that take you to every corner of the country, from outdoor art to al fresco dining to open-air swimming – Belgium has it all if you know where to look. So let us be your guide.

Some of them you might know, others might be new to you. Either way, we hope you find inspiration here for a summer of exploration and discovery. Happy reading and happy travels!
