Experience Limburg visiting Hasselt and Tongeren
If you haven’t had the chance to visit Limburg, we recommend a visit in springtime to enjoy this beautiful part of Belgium and visit Limburg’s capital, Hasselt.
Hasselt is home to a superb Japanese Garden, whose cherry trees are a remarkable sight in spring. Hasselt is also home to a small but intriguing fashion museum and the city itself is a shopping Mecca. Great food is easy to find with a few Michelin Stars sprinkled around town like JER Restaurant, which means Just Eat Right! It is a one Michelin star modern cuisine restaurant served in a neo-classic setting with relaxed lighting. A fireplace and candlelit atmosphere in the dining area with a leafy terrace at the back. High quality cooking that is worth a stop!
Limburg is Belgium’s primary fruit growing region and is spectacular in spring when the apple and pear trees burst into blossom. Walking and cycling through the orchards are great ways to explore and you may even stumble on some unique Belgian art installations, like Reading Between the Lines, better known as ‘the invisible church’.
Limburg is brimming with history, particularly Tongeren, a city famed for its Roman ruins. The excellent Gallo-Roman museum is a good stop, as is the Gothic basilica and UNESCO listed Beguinage. The province is also home to a number of castles, including the exceptional 16th century Alden-Biesen Castle.
In the summer, the fields of Limburg fill with music-lovers at some of the world’s biggest festivals such as Pukkelpop and the Afro-Latino festival.
