Visit one of the many museums and monuments, admire the architecture, climb the Belfry for stunning views, take a horse drawn carriage ride or a boat along the canals. Perhaps just wander the narrow streets and pick up a gift or two at the Christmas Market.
Day 3 A day tour takes you to the historic city of Antwerp, a port city on Belgium’s River Scheldt, with a history dating to the Middle Ages. So much to see and do, museums, monuments, architecture, churches, shops, cafés and restaurants. Visit the Grote Markt or Ruben’s House and there’s always the hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city.
Day 4 A scenic drive along the coastal road by way of Knokke Heist and Blankenburg to the seaside resort of Ostend, known for its long beach and promenade. Docked in the marina is the Mercator – a three-masted 1930s ship which is now a floating museum. Time to explore and enjoy lunch before you travel to Ypres where at 3pm they have a small Christmas Market to stroll round. Departing late afternoon to return to the hotel.
Day 5 After breakfast, depart hotel and commence the homeward journey.
