In the west of the country, the North Sea coast stretches over 43.5 miles between France and the Netherlands. Dikes, dunes and beaches of fine sand border this invigorating coast. Organised trips and the wide open spaces of the polders encourage bicycle rides.
Enthusiasts of Flemish painting, old books and comic strips know that all they have to do is to go to Belgium to admire some very lovely collections of them. Others will use their trip to appreciate some of the temporary exhibitions in the most important museums.
