Coronavirus COVID-19: the latest news for Belgium

 

Time to (re)discover Wallonia!

Touristic sites, attractions and museums have reopened to the public in Wallonia. Our restaurants, cafés and lodgings are now ready to welcome you back too - all of course following the official recommendations to keep everyone safe. 

We all have a role to play in this. Please join us in respecting these simple rules:

  • Wash and disinfect your hands regularly
  • Respect social distancing
  • Wear a mask (mandatory in public transports, shops and wherever social distancing is not possible. Some cities have made it mandatory in the streets as well)
  • Use bins to discard masks, gloves, tissues and wipes 

Many of our partners will have hydro-alcoholic gel available on site.

Please check each site's opening times and conditions before travelling. Most will need you to have booked your visit or stay in advance. We hope you have a fantastic time in Wallonia!
