Family Fun at Antwerp Zoo

Belgium

My Recommendation Tip

Allow at least an afternoon to explore Antwerp Zoo in Flemish-speaking Belgium, which was built in 1843 and is today right next to the city’s main railway station. Despite its early foundation it is one of the more forward-thinking of European zoos, running several conservation programmes, having a high success rate with breeding, and looking to run sustainably on its own resources.

The Best Dutch Breweries

Netherlands

My Recommendation Tip

Beer drinking is a connoisseur’s pastime in Belgium and a team sport in Germany, and with The Netherlands squashed in between, Dutch beers are often overlooked. However, alongside the three giant multi-national brands, Heineken, Grolsch, and Bavaria, the country produces more than 30 boutique beers. Main varieties include pilsners; dark-brown dubbel beers and the strong, pale tripel; classic Dutch witbiers; and bok beers, which are brewed seasonally. Be warned – Dutch beers are generally higher in alcohol content than in other countries. Here are some of the best breweries to visit.

Famous Food in Greece

Greece

My Recommendation Tip

The traditional cuisine in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean, plus a certain Middle Eastern flair; plenty of health vegetables, lots of garlic, and lashings of olive oil. Olives have been grown in Greece since classical times and their extra-virgin oils crop up in many colorful salads full of strong goats- and sheep-milk feta cheese and big, plump tomatoes

Ice Skating at Vienna City Hall

Vienna

My Recommendation Tip

Austria’s capital city makes much of its winter, and once more this year Vienna will see 500,000 happy skaters take to the ice in fine style. With the splendid Neo-Gothic pinnacles and towers of the Rathaus (City Hall) as a backdrop and leading down to the Burgtheater, Vienna Ice Dream – in German Vienner Eistraum – has once again transformed the Rathausplatz into a winter wonderland, and surely Vienna’s most beautiful skating rink.

Things to Do in Bruges

Bruges

My Recommendation Tip

Time has stood still in miniature Bruges; Belgium‘s most visited city is crammed with ancient churches and palaces leaning over the canals. The city flourished as a port up until the 15th century, when its fortunes dried up along with the sea and now it appears to exist in a time bubble.

Amsterdam Hop on, Hop off Tours

Amsterdam

My Recommendation Tip

The Dutch go skating mad come winter, when Amsterdam’s Leidseplein and Museumplein are converted into ice rinks. They are surrounded by cafés to defrost in after a sojourn on the ice. Try Café Cobra on Museumplein for warming soups and zopie (mulled wine).
