Silly, Belgium 😜

Something Long And Complicated visits Silly, Belgium πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ

I have found that this bizarre law is just a myth that should not be believed, but there is no doubt that Belgians have some of the worst roads in the Netherlands, so when you cross the border you will immediately see and feel the difference. When you are on the Antwerp motorway, pay attention to the Liege road sign, because the sign will say Luik. Sources: 2, 3, 5, 6

Most street corners will be busy – well-known Belgian chocolatiers, but there are no McDonald’s fast food outlets, which makes perfect sense. You see, this is not even about taking the trouble to find a restaurant in Belgium. Belgians already have epic fritters, so you’re spoilt for choice. Sources: 1, 3, 13

But if the city is not your thing or you want to go somewhere else, you can always settle in Bruges. If you select a place you want to visit, you will find a map with all the places you have discovered, where the hike is described, by clicking on the name. There are many trains that run to and from Broges, but their destination is usually further away, so get off and take a day trip. I have no doubt that other shops and premises outside Brussels will be less busy, and I am sure that many of them will be. Sources: 0, 5, 10

Brussels is a pretty small city, so it’s likely you can go anywhere you need to go. Staying in the centre of Brussels, you can discover many parts of Belgium in an hour’s drive. Border to border can be travelled in just over two hours, city to city in less than a day. Sources: 5, 14

We also believe that Belgium is a fun place, as long as you know where you are going and what you are doing. If you like old, detailed, complex and historic buildings, then Belgium can be one of your best destinations. Sources: 3

Although the Grand Place is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, where we believe Brussels is really thriving, it is located in the small areas around the centre that most visitors do not think they are visiting. While hunting for the Brussels comic strip walls, we were lucky enough to come across the world’s most famous comic strip shop, the Comic Strip. We must admit that no visit to Bruges is complete without a visit to the famous Museum of Fine Arts of the city. Sources: 5, 10

That is why the people of Bruges are called “Stupid Belgium” – a combination of the words “stupid beer” and “so stupid.” Far from jokes and puns, finding the Silly Brewery is anything but a joke or pun. Sources: 7, 8

Belgium is a great country, where you will not get confused or lost, as the same city will also have German-speaking parts in the north and French parts in the south. If you visit Flanders (North) or Wallonia (South), you will probably discover something unusual, remarkable and uniquely Belgian. Many cities in Belgium behave as the name suggests, such as “Stupid Belgium,” “Stupid Belgium” or “Bruges Stupid Belgium.” Sources: 2, 4, 12, 14

You visit Brussels and Bruges, taste some of the best food and return with a bucket of experience. If you’re hungry again, continue to try traditional Belgian dishes by eating mussels in the most famous restaurants. Sources: 5

Belgium does not have a “Belgian waffle,” although there is a type of waffle that is popular and shaped in North America. You will find it in the three above varieties, all of which have the same basic ingredients as you would find in an average Belgian supermarket. I mentioned eating mussels, French fries and Belgian beer and eating them, but did I mention that they can also be eaten in the most famous restaurants in Brussels and Bruges? Sources: 2, 3, 5

It is also very common to buy bottled beer in Belgium, which explains why it is served in cafes (see “Cafe Delirium”). As these terms are very common in Belgian, you will inevitably come up with terms when looking at the beer list. Sources: 2, 11

Although some restaurants make wine pairing suggestions, you will find that some restaurants in Belgium have beer pairing recommendations instead. You can also add to the menu by pouring a glass of wine into a glass with a corresponding trademark, such as a wine glass, a wine bottle or even a bottle of beer. Sources: 11, 15

Cuberdon is a traditional Belgian raspberry flavored sweet that was invented in Ghent and is a good choice for mild and smooth, unless you are ridiculously spicy with a hint of fruit. Sources: 1, 9

This type of beer is apparently an icon of the Brussels-Brabant region and is often nicknamed “Brussels Champagne.” It should be noted that this beer is very popular in Belgium, not only in Brussels but throughout the country. Belgium and the Belgians are so diverse that we do not even talk about ten different nationalities living together. Belgian beer, because it is drunk regularly and there are many different kinds of Belgian beer in the city of Ghent, Belgium. Sources: 2, 3, 11
