Short summary: service okay but expensive for what it is, lacking refreshments, and difficult to reach.
Elaborate review:
Located on the outskirts of Belsele, in a commercial zone, the location choice of the thermae is peculiar to say the least. The Belsele station is only infrequently serviced, and particularly poorly during weekends and holidays, which makes it even more inconvenient for a touristic attraction. There is a bus stop nearby, but few buses connect to the station so it may be shorter to simply walk (distance ca. 1.4 km) rather than wait for a bus. There are only a few direct trains connecting to Brussels per day, so careful planning is paramount. Poor accessibility will undoubtedly be the most difficult to resolve problem that Katara is currently facing.
The facilities themselves are new and modern. For those seeking a rustic ambient, Katara definitely isn't the best choice, but that is of course a matter of preference. The interior is relaxing, well maintained and tastefully decorated. There is ample space, and few areas give an overcrowded feeling. There is sufficient diversity in things to do, ranging from foot baths to saunas, to (outdoor only) swimming pools, steam bath, relax lounge, jacuzzi etc.
In our experience, the facilities were very clean, and there are absolutely no negative remarks to be made on hygiene or health. Staff is cleaning throughout the day, and most of them are very friendly and helpful.
The only point where Katara is severely lacking is refreshments. There is not a single drinking water Fountain in the entire complex, nor any other kind of refreshment (fruits, tea, ...) which are an absolute necessity for a sauna centered wellness oasis. It is odd that they have not yet picked this up after 5 years of operation. It is therefore necessary for guests to bring water or tea along themselves. Fortunately, the provided lockers are large enough to store all of this.
The thermae are currently undergoing expansion, and the new oriental sauna and relax lounge with beds and sofas are both superb new additions to the site. It seems that the current boiler room has a hard time keeping up with its growth though, as evidenced by the lack of warm water in showers when many guests are showering simultaneously. Occasionally, the water is just too cold for a comfortable shower, even after a sauna session!
At other points, Katara appears overzealous. The surveillance cameras in the changing rooms (!) for example may please the staff's voyeuristic needs but are, needless to say, misplaced. The camp fire next to the swimming pool also offers little extra value but does produce a lot of air pollution.
Although the provided service at Thermae Katara is generally good, the value of a visit is only average due to the very high prices (considering entrance fee, extra charges for basic needs like refreshments, and expensive food and drinks in the restaurant). A visit is therefore only justified when spending an entire day at the thermae and bringing own drinks and snacks along. Katara still has a long way to go until it can offer a value comparable to that of German wellness/thermen.

Verbeke Foundation

Reviewed By Ron K - Copenhagen, Denmark

The Verbeke museum is situated 20 km north of Antwerp. It consists of an indoor section, mostly in unconventional forms such as greenhouse, container, warehouse, and a large park around it with beautiful nature and sculptures, and art installations. Everything is unconventional, unpolished but sparkling at the same time. I have rarely been so thrilled by a visit to an art museum. It is a mixture of Ali Baba's treasure cave, a biology laboratory, a curiosum cabinet and an art gallery. Everywhere you see seemingly random stuff but it is all extremely well thought and planned. There is a lovely section of bio-art, in which nature and artistic thoughts are brilliantly fused. The outside section is a gorgeous 12 ha. large wild nature park in which you will find plenty of interesting art installations, all of a refreshing originality. You will never look to a museum in the same way after you have visited this one. This is worth more than the maximum of 5 stars.

Everything you'd expect from an indoor skiing facility.
Modern, 3 lifts (one is a magic carpet for beginners).
You can rent skis & boots there, and they provide lessons too.
Good place to practice pre-skiing season to limber up a little, even for experienced skiers, and a good place for beginners to learn.
Reasonable driving distance from Gent, Belgium.

nice museum with a nice interieur painted and decorated.A visit to the Museum's Department Store is a unique experience for the whole family The history of the region, with the regional dress collection as one of the highlights will be showcased in a special and interactive manner. The museum shows both young and old past times. Do you dare to play the game barcode?
The collection is composed of various regional costumes, agricultural implements, farm wagons, archeology and utensils with an emphasis on the 19th century.
The special architecture, historic buildings and restored unique wall and ceiling paintings add an extra dimension to the museum and its collection.it really is a flash back in time and a journey for whole the family

De Expositie is in een oude suikerbietenfabriek en omvat diverse takken van industrie uit het begin van de industrialisatie tot en met de windmolens en de kernenergie.

Een fietstocht op een bewolkte maar regenloze dinsdagnamiddag behoeft onderweg een rustpunt
Per toeval hier terechtgekomen en wat ee verborgen parel. Ruime tuin met gezellige afzonderlijke zitplaatsen. Je kunt er (gelukkig) ook koffie krijgen en zelfs zelfgemaakte taartjes of koekjes. Dit konden we niet aan ons laten voorbijgaan.
Mooie omgeving, rust, aangename niet opdringerige bediening - een aanrader als je in de buurt bent

Beervelde Park

Beervelde Park is situated near the City of Ghent, in the very heart of an area famous for its horticulture. Spread over an area of 25 hectares, its stunning architectural features, copses, woodland, meadows, walled Gardens and lake, create a splendit unified landscape full of superb vieuws. The estate was designed in 1873 in what is called (at least in France and Belgium) the English Landscape style. It was intended to serve as a display for what was at the time, a young Belgian horticulture. Ever since, Beervelde Park has been the property of the Counts de Kerchove de Denterghem. Today, 135 years later, it is remarkable to note that the de Kerchove de Denterghem name is still linked to the promotion of horticulture. Count Andre is the former chairman of the Royal Society for Agriculture and Botany, the non-profit organisation which organizes the world famous 'Floralies of Ghent' every five years. His brother, Count Renaud, is today's curator of the estate and organiser of the Beervelde's Garden Days, a fair which takes place every second weekend of May and October.

Attended David & Vicky's wedding on 28th February 2015. What a magical venue for a fairytale wedding reception, especially the courtyard with the fires lit - very atmospheric. The food and the service was amazing - the staff were extremely efficient and professional but very friendly at all times.
