Drive a Car in Belgium
Brussels, is the capital, and largest city. An elegant city, with a historic district that looks almost the same as it did centuries ago. With over 12 museums and galleries, great markets, and a blend of cultures, Brussels truly is a world class city, and is regarded by many as the capital of the European Union.
Drive your hire car to the north of Belgium, where you can visit another two great cities, Antwerp and Bruges. In Antwerp you’ll see the Cathedral of Our Lady, as well as Boerentoren, the oldest skyscraper in Europe, and in Bruges you will find the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and a very different attraction, the Choco-Story Museum, which is dedicated to chocolate.
While Belgium’s larger cities feature some amazingly well preserved historic areas, there are some great smaller ones which are just as popular, with amazing examples of medieval architecture occupying much of their area. Jump in your hire car and drive to the west of the country where the 2000 year old city of Tournai awaits, or perhaps head towards the east where you will find Durbuy, which is thought to be one of the smallest cities in the world. With so many places to visit and excellent roads, renting a car will ensure you’ll get to see all of Belgium’s great attractions, and do so at your own comfortable pace!
