    The smallest city in Belgium loses more authenticity. What does mean that it has lost interest. But too many tourists killing tourism. The former institutions modernized and enlarged and as a result have become more elitist. The takeover attempt of most trade points by a millionaire in the North of the country will not improve the situation...

    Fantastic village beautiful and full of history, in the countryside. To recommend for a jaunt outdoors.

    Lovely town with beautiful buildings and plenty of restaurants. Well worth a visit for half a day. Some great walks down narrow cobbled streets or down by the river.  more »
