Belgium, the centrally located country in Western Europe attracts over 7 million tourists annually. While many of its tourists are from neighboring European countries like Netherlands, France, the UK, Germany, Spain and Italy, Belgium also attracts significant number of tourists from the US and Canada. Belgium has very distinctive regions based on the language spoken with the Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north, the French-speaking Wallonia in the south and the German-speaking region in the east.

Belgium is known for its medieval town and Renaissance architecture. Belgium is centrally located, and convenient to travel to other countries in Europe. Many of Belgium’s tourists are attracted to the coastline or to the Ardennes. The capital city Brussels and the Flemish cities of Ghent, Antwerp, Bruges, Leuven and Mechelen attract many tourists for its cultural artefacts. The capital Brussels also attracts a lot of business related travel.

International tourists should be aware that many domestic health insurance plans including US Medicare do not provide cover outside their national borders.
