You can then hire a bike tour the surrounding canal paths and visit the beautiful little town of Damme.
is a surprising little place.
If you are interested in history, Napoleon, World Wars, or airplanes, I recommend the Cinquantenaire Army museum -- a wonderful place. This museum was a highlight of my stay there. And if you stay in

I spent one year in

A capital of Europe, it is a must to visit! From a fastinating 'La Grande Place' to the Cartoon Museum and it's the best chocolate producing country in the world! This makes prices of chocolate low with the variety of brands and tastes. Come to visit
… Don't waste your time anywhere else -- great college town and wonderful Belgian experience!
