« Excursion: Hasselt »
Thursday, September 21st
We’ll start our day with a visit to the Japanese Garden. This is one of Limburg’s biggest tourist attractions and attracts a large number of nature-loving tourists. Its main mission is to promote Japanese culture in Belgium and the surrounding area. In the afternoon, we’ll take a historical tour of the town, visiting the Cathedral, the Grand-Place and its Mosan style (counterpart to the Brabant style), the old town hall and the Notre Dame church. We’ll also discover the Juniper Man (counterpart to Manneke Pis), the district of the two towers and, finally, picturesque Hasselt with its inner courtyards and/or cul-de-sacs.
