Bruges, the Flemish capital of Belgium, is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North” ✨due to its large number of canals and bridges 🌉 During the Middle Ages, its extensive network of waterways made it one of the major commercial centers of Europe 🌊 Today, tourists can explore this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site by boat for a unique perspective from the water 🛥

Frites are the quintessential Belgian snack, typically served with a huge helping of mayonnaise 🍟 France and Belgium both claim ownership over the much loved universal treat 😋 (Google it to see why) Who do you think deserves the credit - France 🇫🇷 or Belgium 🇧🇪 ?

De Koninck Brewery is the oldest brewery in Antwerp. Its flagship beer is served in a signature glass called a “bolleke” 🍺 The hand icon is a reference to when the original owner, Joseph Henricus De Koninck, bought an inn in the early 1800s, which he later transformed into the brewery 👍 The inn was on the border of Antwerp and another district, denoted by a stone boundary engraved with a hand ✋To this day, that iconic marker remains across from the brewery.

Wandering the quaint cobblestone streets of a beguinage, a former convent community originally created by devout lay women 🙏 Today, this secluded residential area is open to anyone. Hidden in the heart of the city, passing through the entrance gates feels like stepping back in time 🕐

For the celebration of Rembrandt’s 400th birthday 🎂 a bronze-cast representation of his most famous painting, “The Night Watch” was set up in Rembrandt Square.

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe consists of nearly 3,000 gray concrete slabs of varying heights in remembrance of the 6 million Jewish victims who were killed during the Holocaust 😢 A labyrinth of cobblestone pathways between the slabs create the sensation of loss and disorientation, reminding visitors of similar emotions Jews felt during this horrific time in history 😔

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is an anti-war memorial to peace and reconciliation 🙏 The belfry, damaged during a WWII bombing, is now nicknamed the “Hollow Tooth” serving as a reminder of the atrocities of war and a symbol of West Berlin’s extraordinary resilience and post-war recovery, especially during the time Germany was divided 💔

A caricature of the Fraternal Kiss (also known by its official name, My God, Help Me To Survive This Deadly Love), pays tribute to the most famous mural on the East Side Gallery 🎨The painting is based on a 1979 photograph of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East Germany President Erich Honecker in a socialist fraternal kiss, a former greeting between statesmen of Communist countries 👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨 It consisted of an embrace and a trio of kisses on alternate cheeks. However, if two leaders considered themselves exceptionally close, the kisses were given on the mouth instead 💋

The East Side Gallery is the largest open-air gallery in the world with 100 murals painted by artists from all over the globe 🌎 These bright, playful cartoon heads were painted by French-born artist Thierry Noir, the first person credited with painting the wall before it officially became a gallery, often risking his life to do so 🎨 His goal was to transform the wall and demystify it, proving that a single act of rebellion can help lead to revolution ✊

Checkpoint Charlie was the best known crossing point between West and East Berlin during the Cold War. A portrait of American soldier, Jeff Harper, dominates the site 🇺🇸(a Russian soldier is located on the other side.) 🇷🇺 A quick Google search reveals that Harper still serves as First Sergeant for the US Army.

Brandenburg Gate is Berlin’s most famous landmark. In 1989, it became the site where hundreds of thousands of people celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall during the Cold War 🙌 Once the symbol of a divided country, Brandenburg Gate has now come to represent German unity and freedom 🇩🇪🕊
