School trips to Belgium

Located right in the heart of Western Europe, Belgium is a country bursting with charming old towns with perfectly-preserved medieval streets. Having been the location of some of Europe’s most important events, the Belgium countryside has many stories to tell including when Napoleon met his match at the battle of Waterloo and being the frontline during both the First and Second World Wars. And then of course, there are the waffles.

History & Classics
Music & Performance

HISTORY & CLASSICS

Dubbed the ‘Battleground of Europe’, Belgium is steeped in centuries of war history, making it an ideal destination for school group travel. Visit the poignant memorial sites or the battlefields at Ypres, where students have the incredible opportunity to pay their respects to the Australian soldiers and soldiers from around the world who gave their life in The Great War.

MUSIC & PERFORMANCE

A school tour to Belgium is also ideal for music and concert trips. From picturesque squares to beautiful cathedrals, there are a huge range of great venues packed into every town.

CULTURE

Much of the square’s elegant character is due to the unique architecture of its elegant Gildehuizen (guild houses) with their magnificent gables, pilasters, and balustrades, ornately carved stonework, and rich gold decoration.
