By uncle barbar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used many Dorling Kindersley gidebooks and they are all visually stunning.

This one is exceptional though. I love Belgium - if you like interesting history and architecture and decent food (and chocolate!) or are "into" lace (!?) then Belgium is the place to go. the fact that you can see Bruges, Ghent and Brussels in a long weekend is a real draw for me.

This volume - exceptional value at less than 7.50 is all you will need for the four cities on the cover. It's only Antwerp that I haven't been to with this guide - yet!

So, what's inside? Maps of all the important parts of teh cities, history of each area, important places to go with addresses and opening times, places to stay and eat. In fact everything you could want to know and see.

I whole-heartedly recommend this DK book. Go to Ghent and see the castle and the Gothic cathedral. Visit Bruges and go to the Groening museum, the Markt and the Stadhuis (try the Rabbit stew and the Chicken Waterzooi soup they are favulous!) Or go to Brussels where there are too nuemrous places to mention here but don't forget the museums and the Manneken Pis!

Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brussels and Ghent 1 May 2009
Format:Paperback
As with all the DK Eyewitness Travel, the guide are informative and a delight, with lots of great photos, the 3-D drawn maps and so much detail for when you are in the museums, churches etc. Used it for Brussels and Gent and despite having been to Brussels many times discovered so much more using this guide. The one suprising omission is any public transport maps - at least a map of the Brussels metro would have been expected, although the free map we got from the hotel had this.

4.0 out of 5 stars as expected 30 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Eyewitness are great, I love them, so I always buy them, I like the consistency.
Only gripe with this one is the map - the map shows some streets that aren't there, and then there are streets that aren't on the map; by the time you realise this it's ok, and you can figure it out, but it took me an hour longer to find my hotel because of it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it looked 26 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Guide was not that easy to use in Bruges the guide covers selected places of interest and so is not that comprehensive. Maps were a bit small

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit complicated 22 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had better guide books and maps too.
Perhaps Brussels is a bit of a complicated place to get the hang of.
Street by street explainations would help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Guide from DK 27 April 2011

Another excellent guide but I would have liked a little more content for Bruge as that was where I was spending the weekend

The guide is great. Lovely pull out maps which proved useful. Lots and lots of detail on the history and culture of the country.

Although the guide does have some food and attraction recommendations, we felt that it concentrated much more on the historical architecture rather than modern entertainment. We hoped we would have more information on the chocolatiers and shows/nightlife, but it didn't really.

I would advise buying this if you really are going to Belgium to view the sites only and don't care much for anything else :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Always " Top of the Tree" 18 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whenever we travel abroad the DK guides are always the first that we aim for.

Details and graphics are top-class and before we visit a venue it is almost as though we know the place already.

Slightly disappointed as I was buying the guide for a trip to Bruges and the guide is almost exclusively about Brussels.
