Belgium

Belgium is a small country, divided into Dutch-speaking Flanders in the North and French-speaking Wallonia in the south. Despite its small size, Belgium is important due to its administrative role in the EU and NATO. Our trip to Belgium focuses on Brussels.

Cities visited: Brussels

Brussels

Brussels, a city of one million, has become Europe's de facto capital through the European Union.

Scheduled Events

In Brussels we:
  • Take a walking tour of the city to see the Grand Place, the grandiose Town Hall, the King's House (now a museum) and several guild houses where Karl Marx wrote the "Communist Manifesto" and Victor Hugo served part of his exile.
  • See the Place Royale with the statue of Duke Godefroid de Buillion, the leader of the first crusade or the "King of Jerusalem"
Free Time

In your free time, if the history of past programs is a guide, you will be eating.

Belgium is home to a large array of temptations, including dark chocolates, decadent waffles, fruity Belgian beers and delicious moules frites

Few can resist all of the above.


Note: Itinerary may change without notice. Adaptations are made every semester.
