Liège city guide

You don’t go to Liège to relax. You go to Liège to get shredded. Trust me, I’m a certified personal trainer. Spend a week in Liège and your body fat % will drop to single digits. Guaranteed (terms and conditions apply)! What is it about this Liège that affects body composition so dramatically? It’s one of those cities where you stay for a few days and walk the same route. You walk around the same few blocks and it’s always a different experience. So, you do a lot of walking, because it’s very enjoyable here. Stairs are another factor that contributes to rapid fat loss. You will have to climb a lot of those if you want to see the best Liège has to offer.

Ghent city guide

Ghent or Gent in Dutch is often overlooked by tourists as it is located in between "the big three": Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp. But don't let it fool you. It's the perfect destination for anyone that aims to have a taste of Belgium without pushing through crowds of sweaty, smelly people with cameras. Bruges might me more famous with tourists and the medieval architecture and canals are astonishing . But - and I say this with all respect - it also feels too much as an open-air museum and as at nights is often deserted and boring.

Antwerp city guide

There are also numerous landmarks and world-famous specialties to try. Even my father, who used to be an officer electrician on tanker ships, used to tell me how Antwerp is one of the most charming and lovely places on earth, and he has seen a lot in his days. Everything worth seeing is within a walking distance of the stunningly beautiful Central Station and the old ...

Brussels city guide

Brussels, Brussel in Dutch and Bruxelles in French or as the real connaisseurs often refer to: BXL, is the living and breathing heart of modern Europe. The capital of both Belgium and the European Union itself, this city has become a center of administration to one of the most recognizable political powers of our world. I know it also sounds like a capital of boredom and suited up zombies, but hear me out since I am supposed to belong to those. I fully understand that for most visitors it will not be love at first sight. Fact: especially on grey and rainy winter days the city with its endless out dated office buildings alongside busy boulevards with permanent traffic jams can show a very gloomy and depressive face. But don't forget: Brussels is typically a city that has to grow on you. It ...
