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 :)
I would have given this 5-stars but for two things; the maps are not as detailed or comprehensive as I'd like, particularly in the bightmare one-way cobbled-stone maze of Bruges
The other is their restaurant recommendations. We trekked through back-streets to reach a particular Brasserie only to receive average food and abysmall service. On reflection I think it is better policy to use recommendations from the hotel you're staying in as they tend to be more current and based on feedback from previous patrons
Brussels by comparison to Ghent, Antwerp and Bruge was quite dull, yet the guide managed to highlight all the good places to visit and parks to walk through en-route to a certain landmark, which I think is a nice touch
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!
