Hotels from 2 to 5 Star

Arrival in Brussels:

Visit the majestic Grand Place in the heart of Brussels. Have dinner at In t'Spinnekopke, known for their cuisine a la biere. Travel to Beersel, home of 3 Fonteinen and enjoy a traditional Belgian meal. Tour the historic lambic brewery at Cantillon, where they still brew using spontaneous fermentation with open air fermentors. 

Brussels to Bouillon:

Journey south to the Ardennes to the Trappist Breweries. Stop at Abbey de Notre Dame de St. Remy in Rochefort, home of some of the world's finest ales.  After some tasting and a tour of the brewery, enjoy a traditional Ardennes meal. Continue to the lovely city of Bouillon with its impressive fortified chateau. 

Bouillon to Ghent:

Ghent is know for its unusual take on the art of beer-making. Bars of all shapes and sizes and many bars dedicated to the serious beer-connoisseur, with beer lists that would take a lifetime to drink. Beer courses as strongly through the arteries of the typical 'Stroppendrager' as the water that flows along Ghent's many canals and rivers – and fortunately for the beer-tourist, it tastes much better too!

Ghent to Brugge:

During the 15th century, when the city was at its most powerful, Bruges boasted no less than 54 breweries within its fortified walls. With De Halve Maan and Fort Lapin, Bruges today has two working breweries. As well as Straffe Hendrik Tripel, Quadrupel and Heritage they are best known for Brugse Zot (Blonde and Dubbel) which has won several international awards. These brews will not disappoint.

Brugge to Antwerp:

Here in Antwerp the iconic beer is of course De Koninck, or more particularly the bulbous bolleke glasses that it's served in. This light-red malty ale is pretty much the house beer of Antwerp, and the distinctive chalice-shaped glass is so ubiquitous that all self-respecting Sinjoren will be heard to 'holler for a bolleke', when its time for their round. So join them and discover why it is so iconic.

Antwerp to Brussels Airport:

Enjoy some free time in Brussels before heading home. Take this time to recover and adjust your taste buds as beer will never be the same after this trip to Belgian beer paradise.
