Munch on some moules and frites, finish off with a cheeky piece of chocolate, and wash it all down with a tankard of Trappist beer – for some reason Belgium seems to lend itself to stereotypes.

But there’s more to the story than Tintin and the European Union: Belgium has a wealth of art and culture, with museums such as the Plantin Moretus Musuem (devoted to printing) in Antwerp, the Grand Place central square in Brussels, and the historic city center of Bruges, all designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

We’ve got articles that move beyond the cliches, where you can find out about the snow and ice festival that takes place each year, where to study French, and what to do in Brussels beside drink beer.
