Step into a fairy tale… The castle of Louvignies, near Soignies, is particularly enchanting and its park offers a lovely opportunity for a stroll. The castle of La Hulpe, in the Brussels suburbs, features 500 pieces by Folon, a fascinating artistic trail. To the East of Belgium is the castle of Rheinhardstein, with its amazing collection of armours and halberds. You can even indulge in a medieval meal there.
A day at the museum
Put Mons’ Mundaneum, nicknamed the Paper Google, in Mons, Leuze-en-Hainaut’s Mahymobile, Liège’s aquarium on your list. These museums are perfect for rainy days: it’s incredibly easy to spend the whole day there! Spa-Francorchamps’ iconic racetracks are of course an absolute must.
