Product Description

From the Publisher

With Lonely Planet’s new "Belgium & Luxembourg" in hand, you will wind your way to Brussels Grand Place, discover the country’s finest baroque guild halls, popular pavement cafes and intimate cellar restaurants and admire the zany, intellectual comic-strip-art displayed with Art Nouveau at the Centre Belge de la Bande. Tour picturesque Bruges, one of Europe’s best preserved medieval cities, glimpsing the famous relic of Christ’s blood, or bring the house down at the ‘party city’ port of Antwerp where one can find eclectic restaurants alongside a red-light district, right-wing politics next to cutting edge fashion, and baroque art and architecture flanking trendy nightclubs.

•39 detailed maps, including a full colour Brussels metro map •accommodations for all budgets, from gites d'etapes to five star hotels •comprehensive guide to the clubs and cafes of Brussels, Antwerp and Luxembourg City •cycling options throughout the region from the flat Flanders coast up into the scenic Ardennes •special sections on Belgian beer and chocolate --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I'm an exchange student living in Belgium for a year.. and this book is AMAZING! I'm determined to do everything in this book, and I'm already on my way! A few of the pricing things and anything to do with money is a little outdated (ie: the Diamond museum in Antwerp is no longer free). But the authors know their stuff, and (quoting Notting Hill) has actually been to Belgium, which is a plus. And not only do they know their stuff, they give it to you straight up. No sugar coating, nothing, and that's a huge plus. Go out, buy the book, then visit our amazing country!

The worst Lonely Planet I have read so far ! April 11 2006
By Jochen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As much as I am faithul to Lonely Planet guidebooks, I was shocked by reading their edition of Belgium & Luxembourg. Not only did we have to wait 2004 to have a LP guidebook for those 2 countries (which must be after about all other regions in the world, even Antarctica, Papua New Guinea and tiny tropical islands), but it's not even half satisfying.

They should have kept the previous title "Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp", as there is frankly not much about the rest of the country. For instance, Belgium has some 3000 castles, but for some reason only 2 (yes, a miserable 2 !) are listed in the Lonely Planet. Same sparsity for the abbeys. Then, the book is heavily centered on Brussels and Flanders, as if the author didn't know more about Wallonia than the average occasional tourist. No mention of towns like Huy, Ciney or Gembloux - in fact they are not even on the guide's map ! No mention of the beautiful stone villages of the Condroz and Meuse Valley. It's like if they had written a guidebook about England without writing about the Cotswolds, Mendips and the country's many castles and stately homes ! It seems that the author is more interested in finding the best pubs and clubs in Antwerp than in historical and cultural sightseeing. There is more than lots of beer and legal drugs in Belgium !

Wanted to know what we could about Luxembourg & Belgium before we got there for vacation. It was help full and informative about what we could see.
