    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    Belgium, they say, is boring. Whoever ‘they’ are, they obviously haven’t been to Antwerp. Belgium’s second city is fashionable, fast-paced, art loving, and more fun at night than most cities have ever been. Put aside your stereotypes, and instead grab your mayo-coated oysters, dress up to the nines, and discover what Antwerp is really all about.

    It’s a small city, but packed to the rim with picturesque cobbled backstreets, and based around a delicate 16th century cathedral that’s so painfully picturesque you can’t help doing the tourist thing and snapping away from every angle. Around those backstreets, countless shops serve up sumptuous and relatively affordable cuisines out on the streets, while you’ll find yourself licking your lips around every corner, as the smell of the numerous high-class chocolate shops gets you salivating.

    Make you way down to the waterfront, where striking modern architecture runs rampant, before taking a tour of the artistic side of the city. You’ll discover gothic, baroque and renaissance influences left, right and center, and you can dive into the galleries and even the home of Pieter Paul Rebens, the legendary baroque artist, whose studio is open for all to see.

    Another Antwerp trademark is Diamonds; tucked away in the Jewish Quarter is the world’s largest diamond cutting industry, while elsewhere you’ll find old section of the city dedicated to African, Chinese and Turkish minorities, a fascinating relic of the city’s time as a major trading port. There are still the seedy remnants of this scene to be found in the North of Antwerp, where unsubtle red light districts are the order of the day. If you prefer your culture a little more delicate, Antwerp is also home to an impressive designer buzz, with fashionable boutique stores up to its ears.

    A surprising, classy highlight that belongs at the core of any Belgian trip, then Antwerp is just too scenic to ignore, yet still manages to hide a hectic nightlife behind the pretty façade. Be assured, it’ll take all of ten minutes to dispel that ‘boring, boring Belgium’ stereotype.

    • Mechelen
      Mechelen, the religious capital of Belgium (because of the seat of the Cardinal), was build near the river Dijle and the Leuven canal. The town has an interesting history, dating back to the dark ages, which has left many architectural masterpieces to admire. The first train on the European continent drove between Brussels and Mechelen, in 1835.

      Today, the city offers many shopping facilities, as well as museums and artwork. The Grand Place is one of the most beautiful in Belgium, with many open space and terraces. Apart from that Mechelen has the ambition of being the most child-friendly city of Flanders, establishing many facilities and activities for children. (e.g. Technopolis and the Toy Museum)

      Mechelen is a Dutch-speaking city in the province of Antwerp, Flanders. The municipality comprises the city of Mechelen proper, some quarters at its outskirts, the hamlets of Nekkerspoel (adjacent) and Battel (a few kilometers away), as well as the villages of Walem, Heffen, Leest, Hombeek, and Muizen. The Dijle flows through the city, hence the term 'Dijlestad' (Dijle City).

      Mechelen lies on the major urban & industrial axis Brussels-Antwerp, about 25 km from each city.

      Places of interest are:

      St. Rumbold's Cathedral) with its dominating tower (UNESCO World Heritage)
      The Church of St. John the Evangelist and the church of Our Lady across the river Dijle
      The domed baroque Basilica of Our Lady of Hanswyck by native architect Lucas Faydherbe, of whom Some sculptures can also be found in the cathedral - he was a pupil and leading assistant of Rubens.

    • Ixelles
      Ixelles (in Dutch: Elsene) is one of the 19 municipalities in the Brussels Capital Region, located in the south east from Brussels center. The origins of Ixelles date from the foundation of the Abbey of La Cambre by a Benedictine nun in 1196. The buildings of the Abbey of la Cambre now house a school for visual arts, the National Geographic Institute.

      Ixelles is divided into two parts by the upscale Avenue Louise, which belongs to the municipality of Brussels. This makes Ixelles, together with Baarle-Hertog and Mesen one of the only three Belgian municipalities with territory divided over several, non-bordering parts.

      On its territory we find the main campus of the Université Libre de Bruxelles and the campus de la Plaine.

      Ixelles is known throughout Belgium for its concentrated population of people of African origins near the Porte de Namur/Naamsepoort, and is known as Matongé after the marketplace and the commercial district with the same name in Kalamu, Kinshasa.

      The famous shopping arcades, the Galerie d'Ixelles and the Galerie de la Porte de Namur are both located in the heart of Matongé.

      Several fairs are organized in Ixelles, including the Spring Fair on the Flagey square, which takes place between the fourth and sixth Sunday after Easter, and the Boondael Fair at the end of July.

    • Breda

      Besides its rich history, dating from 1125 when the city is first mentioned, the city is also the hometown of many tourism students from the International University of Tourism Studies.

      The city centre is excellent for going out. Cafes, bars, restaurants and terrasses are all over the place. For every age is plenty to explore.
