Bruges is a charming city that's defined mostly by its medieval-style architecture making it look like something right out of a fairy tale. Inside this town, you'll find serene canals and cobbled lanes that create a network of market squares. Of course, you'll still find towering structures among the historic buildings, as this city is also an important financial hub. That means plenty of shopping for travellers.
Antwerp is a fascinating city with one of the largest ports in the world that has a thriving industry. Because of this, shopping in Antwerp is some of the best in the country where you'll find high-end and bargain items among local shops and malls. Additionally, you can explore historical sites and the port to watch all the ship traffic going in and out virtually constantly during the day.
In Brussels, you can enjoy a rich history expressed throughout the diverse architecture in town including Gothic cathedrals, old guild houses and Art Deco taverns and shops. It would take multiple days to see all the landmarks, but you can also find museums, pubs and breweries that you may be interested in exploring. In fact, the breweries tend to be a favourite thanks to the long reach of Belgian brewing.
Ypres is an ancient city dating back thousands of years prior to the invasion of the Romans. You can see a lot of that history expressed in the local architecture, though a lot of it was destroyed during the first world war. Additionally, you can discover incredible shopping opportunities as well as special events such as the Cat Parade held every year.
When you visit Ghent, the most common sights you'll come across are marketplaces and public squares. This town is a shopper's paradise, though the experience is more oriented with market towns than big city malls. You can also explore several historical sites including old monasteries with one dating back to the 7th century. Whatever you plan to do, you're sure to appreciate the city's walkability.
