Durbuy is a postcard-pretty town located on the edge of the Ardennes, on the banks of the Ourthe River. It’s a favourite of visitors to Wallonia, for its tiny cobbled streets and timber-frame houses. It was also the recipient of the prestigious EDEN prize for European Destinations of Excellence, in 2003. It can get rather crowded and touristy on a sunny Sunday, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit. In fact we have 7 great reasons to visit Durbuy, Belgium.
It’s berry season in Europe and one town in Wallonia has been growing Belgium’s best strawberries since the 1800s. Wépion Strawberries, or fraise de Wépion, are eagerly anticipated by Belgians each spring.
A special tradition remains in one coastal town in Belgium. It combines the power of horses and the will of men, to bring us a tiny, sweet gift from the sea – the Belgian Grey Shrimp.
Summer is around the corner and nothing pairs better with a Belgian summer than a refreshing Belgian beer. Blond ale is a great choice for the season and there are many options in Belgium. Today we get you started with a few you should try.
We all know Belgium is famous for beer and it’s not a stretch to learn Belgium produces good wine. What would you say if I told you there is a Belgian Vodka and it’s actually delicious? Cosmik Pure Diamond is listed among the top 10 Vodkas in the world but their fruit vodkas steal the show.
Although we are ardent fans of the grape, good wine can be made from virtually any fruit. One organic orchard in Belgium is doing just that, with their collection of Belgian fruit wines. Recently, we tasted three of the O’Bio fruit wine range, from Bezegaard orchard, near Ghent.
