Romantic Honeymoon Spots

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.
Honeymoon Hotels & Suites 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.
