If there's something really wrong with this brand new eyewitness travel guide it's the subtittle: the book covers almost all important, interesting and delightfull pieces of land of this wonderfull "pocket" country and I'd rather nominate it: "Belgium: the essencial". This time, DK (editors) brought us a correctly concised, essencial, plum weight good-to-take-away guide, free from futile information.

This has worked out well for the most part. I use other guides to plan the trip and the DK Guide in the country. It has very usable maps although sometimes too limited in scope and you may require a local...
This was an indispensable tool my navigation of Belgium. I also purchased the Top 10, published by DK just so I would not miss anything. I liked the large maps and the clear directions to the venues. The pictures were GREAT. This book greatly enhanced my journey.
