Beautiful Belgium is one of the most underrated honeymoon destinations in Europe. From unforgettable Brussels and Bruges to the river valleys of the Ardennes in Southern Belgium, a romantic vacation in this part of Northern Europe would be a fitting encore to any storybook romance.
Belgium is an excellent getaway by itself, or as part of a romantic break along with nearby Northern France, Germany or the Netherlands. We made it part of a vacation itinerary that included Amsterdam and the Western edge of Germany near Dusseldorf.
Here’s a brief look at some romantic vacations in Belgium, including places to see, things to do, and hotels and packages for a wonderful anniversary or honeymoon in Belgium.
Bruges: Hotel Heritage – we loved this perfect honeymoon hotel in medieval Bruges, which is one of Belgium's most romantic spots. The rooms include chandeliers and large screen LCD TV, and some of the deluxe ones include whirlpool tubs. There's even an an iPad in each room for guests to use!
A sauna and Turkish steam bath are available, plus you can rent bikes from reception or just relax on the sundeck and enjoy the views of this romantic city in Northern Belgium.
Brussels: Welcome Hotel - this award-winning honeymoon hotel is located in the heart of Brussels, and just a few minutes walk to the Grand Place and the Manneken-Pis. Some of the rooms include a Jacuzzi tub, while all of them offer free flat-screen TV's and WiFi, and are romantically themed around destinations the travel-loving innkeepers have visited, like Kenya, Bali, China and Egypt.
Antwerp: De Witte Lelie - this small and very romantic 17th Century Antwerp boutique hotel enjoys a great central Antwerp location on cobble stoned Keizerstraat. Rooms and suites (only 10 of them) include luxury bath products and complimentary Belgian Beer (!), while the spacious Presidential Suite with it's open fireplace is all ready for your honeymoon in Belgium.
Honeymoon in Belgium at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels - their honeymoon package includes 2 nights in a executive room, choice of breakfasts with an "served in-room" option, romantic dinner, champagne, rose petals on arrival, and a late check-out.
Radisson Blu Balmoral Hotel - the romance package at this Ardennes hotel would make any Belgium honeymoon vacation memorable, with welcome champagne, access to wellness spa, 2 deluxe dinners and a buffet breakfast.
