The Rough Guide to Belgium and Luxembourg is packed with historical context and well-informed insights into the superb sights, museums and galleries of the big cities — Ghent, Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels, and Luxembourg City — but it also departs from the urban centers for the forests and moorland of the Ardennes, the windswept beaches of the north coast, the WWI sites of Flanders, and Luxembourg’s remote hamlets.
