Tickets sell out almost instantaneously for Tomorrowland, thanks to its reputation as one of the world’s biggest celebrations of electronic music, playing host to Performances from techno to house, dance to trance. Now in its 11th year and notorious for its 15 wackily decorated stages and hypnotic lightshows, the festival is held in Boom, near Antwerp, and attracts a laid-back crowds of tens of thousands.
We travelled from California to attend. We got our tickets through global journey. The production is insane! Best set ever. We met and danced along with people from all over the World. We will definitely be back again. Be prepared to walk an hour after partying to the shuttles. We opted to cab out of there Saturday and was a nightmare. Brussels only has 1,000 cabs so not nearly enough to go around. Be prepared to walk one hour to get to the shuttle.

A self-guided audio tour takes you into the rich (albeit somewhat eerie) history of Fort Breendonk. We were amazed at all that it had to offer and the incredible things that took place here. I highly recommend this to anyone regardless of your historical knowledge or inklings.
You will want to bring snacks with you as it takes a while to go through and there isn't much nearby apart from a very fancy restaurant (not where you'll want to go after this)

Considering the size of the town, this is a relatively large Beguinage, but still only has 16 streets and alleys. One of the streets on one side has all the same houses, but in the rest you find a large range of different style and size houses. This is rather different from the other beguinages I have visited. Furthermore, there is no grass square, but there are quite a few trees in the private Gardens. It has a large barok church, which sadly seems to be never open. Part is undergoing necessary renovations.

Leopold II had this unusual rail station built as a neo-Baroque monument to the railway age in 1905.
Good place, just be careful of 3 things, 1. People asking for cigarettes and money 2. Some people engage you in a conversation and try to rob your baggage 3. Some cabbies don’t accept cards so better ask upfront before boarding the vehicle

The Zimmer tower looks very attractive from the outside. The museum about time measurement is alright. Inside the tower one finds one floor where tides and times are kept of places around the world. The second floor shows the mechanism behind the clocks on the outside of the tower. There is also a movie explaining the history of the tower, which was first called the Cornelius tower: With the upcoming 100-year anniversary of Belgium in 1930, Zimmer started the conversion of this medieval (first mentioned in 1425) fortification to its present state.

Walk into the printing press and the Plantin-Moretus family home as though you were a family friend paying a visit 400 years ago. Explore the house, the garden and the press in the only museum in the world on the UNESCO World Heritage list. - the two oldest printing presses in the world and more than 20.000 lead letters - 30.000 old books, illustrated manuscripts and other treasures of European printing - a beautiful baroque garden hidden within the walls of the museum
Really fun and interesting museum! I found myself getting lost in the various old tombs scattered throughout the house - especially the atlas' and botanical works. Quite fascinating to see how many different types of fiction/non-fiction were published by Rubens' business.
My only knock was it was at time hard to following the maze of rooms in the order you were suppose to see them. I got lost in the middle and might have missed something interesting! Signage needed to be bigger and more distinct.
Overall would visit again.

This is a charming museum with a very well displayed collection of mainly paintings and tapestries which belonged to a mayor of Antwerp who was a friend of Rubens. The admission charge includes a very comprehensive guide. Each exhibit is numbered and so easy to find in the guide. There is also a delightful courtyard garden.
There are a couple of rooms which house temporary Exhibitions, and this time it ws landscape paintings.

It would be easy to overlook this amazing attraction as a tourist if you focused too much on Antwerp's historic centre. You'd be missing out if you did. In over 30 acres of parkland, including some excellent specimen trees, there are literally hundreds of sculptures including by many from the masters of the craft, as well as some amusing pieces thrown in for good measure. There's also a pleasant little cafe for lunch and if you drive straight to the main gate lots of free parking. Whether you're an art lover or not a half day spent here on a sunny day will probably last long in the memory.

Even though Cogels Osylei is highlighted here there is actually a triangle of streets where this collection of 1890s mansions (and they are mansions) can be found. Indeed I thought Waterloostraat had the best examples. There's practically no interruption of modern dwellings here and there a range of art nouveau features, although many of the grand house have features harking back to early styles of 19th century architecture. A very pleasant walk around the triangle can be concluded with coffee at any one of a number of places (we went into Maurice's at one end of the triangle and thought it was excellent). Don't be frightened to drive if you have a car. There was lots of (cheap) on-street parking when we were there on a weekday.

Only a short tram ride from the historic centre, making sure you have your invaluable 3 Euro guide to the district from the Tourist Office, an incomparable feast of singular Art Nouveau architecture awaits you, compactly arranged in 4-5 streets around the Berchem rail station. Almost every house is a gem: tilework, fenestration, mosaics, ironwork, roofs, doors...there are large and smaller individual houses, rows of houses concealed as one huge house, matching houses each side of a crossroads....the diversity, beauty and imagination goes on. Words cannot do this district justice. Take an hour with the guidebook and then another to repeat the walk without it, just drinking it in.
