Writer enjoys historical Belgian break02.09.2009
History is a major cornerstone of a holiday in Belgium, a writer has suggested.
Karl Wilberg, writing for Canada.com, made the trip to the country and found this to be the case, those planning a ferry crossing to Belgium may be interested to hear.
He said his journey involved a stop-off at Antwerp"s grand square, which saw "guild houses stand proud", leading him to comment that "a great city, like the living thing it is, heals and preserves itself".
Mr Wilberg also enjoyed trips to the UNESCO World Heritage site found in Plantin-Moretus Printenkabinet, which is a 16th century printing house filled with outlets which have been "left untouched since 1867, as if the typesetters will return tomorrow".
The writer also noted other major parts of breaks in Belgium, as he sampled stew soaked in the country"s famous beer and observed a bike race, saying that the latter is a common occurrence in the Flanders region.
Brits planning a ferry trip to Belgium may want to pay a visit to some of the nation"s famous attractions, such as the Grand Place and the Battle of the Bulge Museum.
