Hi! A couple friends and I are briefly visiting Belgium in July. I was wondering which two cities you would most recommend to a group of girls in their 20's? It's most likely between Bruges, Brussels, and Antwerp.
Mentioned in this answer:
For me, it's Brussels!
I would recommend you places to visit such Grand Place or the Atomium. Don't forget to try the real Belgian Fries (don't talk about French fries!) and Belgian Waffles because they are the best in the world!
Ghent! More alive than Bruges, but also well preserved. It even has a medieval castle in the middle of it. It's a real 'Hipster' city. And a really international club scene, with good food and nice shopping.
I live here, so I should know :-)
You should go to Ghent: a hidden gem! Bruges is beautiful but way too much tourists.
