Saw this spectacular tower top from our hotel and wanted to see it up close. The road entrance was closed so made our way up into the park (about 2 floors up) and decided the view from the park of the surrounding city and countryside...More

Visiting the helpful tourist information office on the Grand Place, we were armed with a map that gave us a choice of short walks around the centre of town. We cut through the town hall to the Mayor's Garden and then made our way to...More

Every Belgium city I visited has a bell tower which is very unique. They used it not as bell, but also as observation point for enermies in old days. This bell tower looks much newer than the cathedral but it's beautiful.

Small town, easy to visit in half a day. Good student atmosphere, cheap restaurants all over the place

It's a gentle incline to walk up to the tower but once we got there we (and another tourist couple) couldn't find our way in. Somehow we had come to a locked door which said it was only for groups. It's not easy being stupid!...More

Nice hike up and enjoyed exploring. Did not pay to go up tower but did not feel like missing much. We had to find our way through a side alley to get there
