Another of Belgium’s vibrant university cities, Leuven is as undiscovered as Bruges was a few years ago. Without doubt, the jewel in the crown is the Grote Markt and its impressive town hall. Built to rival that of Brussels, the building captivates passers-by with a façade full of intricate sculptures. Leuven’s vim and energetic vibe will sweep you along, encouraging you to dine in a range of pavement restaurants on the Oude Markt or wander the streets of the Great Beguinage. Having been put firmly on the map by Margaret of Austria in the 16th century, you’d probably struggle to pinpoint Mechelen’s location these days. That’s by no means a bad thing, though, as you may well have the city’s spectacular churches and resplendent palaces all to yourself. This underrated destination can fill your brain with wonders found in museums, fill your heart with joy given by its welcoming locals and fill your stomach with a great selection of award winning beers.
