Downtown Brussels is the nicest part of Brussels, especially La Grande Place. Don't forget to have a big plate of delicious steamed mussels with fries (moules frites) at one of the outdoor restaurant tables, for example Chez Léon.

Really beautiful, unbelievably quiet city. Gondolas and canals take you around, or you can walk, or bike. Numerous little candy stores sell many kinds of delicious Belgian chocolate.

Lovely walk. Pretty part of Brussels I wouldn't have explored otherwise.

NEUTRAL MORESNET
A historical trail in Belgium's region "Voerendaal" (Fouron" in French) with maximum height of 346 m and a minimum of 193 m or 153 m difference to conquer twice. Peace of cake. This round trip, mostly through a woodland, is close to Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) where you can spend the afternoon if you start early morning.
Starting at "Drielandenpunt", a tripoint where Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands meet, going downhill along the German border to Neu-Moresnet and further to Kelmis, previously known as Moresnet and once an independent free state due to the zinc mines. In those days there was thus a “Vierlandenpunt” (quadripoint). See https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutraal_Moresnet?wprov=sfsi1 and http://historiek.net/misverstandje-moresnet-overleeft-bizarre-eeuw/58091/ ). From Kelmis the tour leads you, via the Moresnetterstrasse, rue de la Calmine (“Minestreet”) to Moresnet-Chapelle where via the Kalvariënberg / rue du Calvaire and the rue d’Aix back though the wooded hills to the starting point, where you can enjoy an after-walk too.

Visited Grand Place and a few other sites nearby.

When i planned the hike, the plan was to go al the way to France but i underestimated it a little bit. The second day puts you to the limit, very tough day. The last day the hiking speed was nearly halved.But besides that, great hike along the borders of the Semois, one of the nicest trails in Belgium.
