History and landscapes that connect

What makes East Belgium so unique? Apart from the landscape, it's the inhabitants and the authorities in the towns and villages who provide the impulse. Many events and attractions simply wouldn't take place without their commitment. And it's also the municipalities themselves which provide guests with the necessary information in the local Tourist Information Offices.
