Aalst

 
Aalst Aalst is a cozy provincial town half way between Brussels (25km) and Ghent (30km), built on the shores of the Dender River. Historically, Aalst was first mentioned in AD 840 as a dependency of the Lobbes abbaye, and shortly later when sacked by the Danes. Located in East Flanders, on the border between Flanders and Brabant, an area of land disputed throughout history between German princes and the King of France, Aalst flies both the German eagle and the French Crown in it's banner. Between the two, the town has known it's good days (county capital of 'the country of Aalst and the two cities') and it's less good. Aalst boasts the eldest belfry in the Netherlands. And a very beautiful one at that. Together...
 

Ghent

 
Ghent In a unique way, the beautiful Ghent has managed to preserve its medieval power while keeping up with the times. Ghent was one of the biggest cities in Western Europe at the end of the Middle Ages, renowned for its textile industry. Today it is the third biggest city of Belgium and one of the most beautiful ones. The city centre alone is a showcase of medieval Flemish wealth and commercial success. Nearby Bruges may be cuter, but Ghent is more of a real city, and has better museums, better nightlife, restaurants and is not that touristy. Modern Ghent certainly cannot be overlooked either. The city has an important port, thanks to the canal Ghent-Terneuzen which allows sea-going vessels to bring their products t...

Durbuy

 
Durbuy Durbuy is the smallest city of Belgium. It is a very cute place, with lots of old houses, cobbelstone streets and a great setting on the banks of the Ourthe. As you enter the city, once youve crossed the old bridge on the Ourthe, you face the old castle of the Graves from Ursel which was built in the 11th century and rebuilt by this family in the 17th century on the ruins of the ancient feudal fortification. You then notice the Saint-Nicolas church from the 17th and the 18th centuries (baptismal funds) and the ancient convent from the Recollects. The Corn Hall, an old half-timbered house, stands conspicuously between the homogenous and picturesque group of houses. This house was already mentioned in 1380 and was...
