Steven Vandenbussche, Curator of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele, describes his favourite locations in Belgium. There’s something for everyone here: a restaurant, two great museums, a country walk, a cycle route and a family fun park. Oh and then you can round it all off with a trip to Steven’s favourite whiskey bar! Cheers!
