When to visit Belgium
Albatross Tours’ Belgium and Holland tour is offered through either early-May or early-July. This is because the former begins the country’s renowned bar season, along with cultural celebrations dating back to the 14th century. July, on the other hand, is Belgium’s peak season for tourists and locals alike. This is when the weather heats up to mid-20°C and the country comes alive with world-renowned music festivals, kite surfing and plenty of local beer.
To avoid the crowds, costs, and warmer weather, November and January see things slow down between summer and Christmas. There is always a festival of sorts to be found in Belgium, but these off-peak periods certainly show a quieter side to this quaint country.
