Belgium is known first and foremost as the home of world renowned Belgian chocolate, like Neuhaus and Côte d'Or. Belgium also produces over 500 varieties of beer (ales, pils, Stella Artois, Jupiler) (see Belgian beer).

Belgian folk festivals, which play a major role in the country's cultural life include the Carnival of Binche and Aalst, the Ducasse of Ath, the procession of the Holy Blood in Bruges, the 15th-of-August festival in Liège, and the Walloon festival in Namur.

It is a beautiful country, worthy of many walking tours
