Rent the best campervans and motorhomes in Belgium
Belgium, which belonged to the "Netherlands" until 1830 and thus became independent, has been part of numerous tribes and dioceses over the past millennia. Belgium is known for various delicacies, including chocolates, waffles, fries and many types of beer. The now world-famous word 'spa' is a Belgian concept and comes from the town of Spa, which is known for its historic baths.
Besides photogenic cities and culinary delights, Belgium has several outstanding nature reserves, such as the Hoge Kempen National Park and the Hoge Venen.
Belgium is a rather densely populated country, with over 11 million inhabitants in an area of 30,000 square kilometres.
It sounds tempting to pitch your tent everywhere, to park your motorhome hire in Belgium at random in the wooded Ardennes or along the elongated coastline, but unfortunately, this is a utopia in Belgium. Wild camping is prohibited and you will have to find an official campsite suitable for campervans. You can do anything in Belgium, depending on your interests. For city trips, it is best to travel to the medieval Bruges and Ghent, where the wonderful Castle Gravensteen and old facades demand attention. Beach lovers will enjoy seaside resorts such as Knokke-Heist and Ostend, while the east of Belgium is the best place to go for amazing nature. Park your campervan at Hoge Kempen National Park and explore this nature reserve on foot or by bike.
In general, you will find both paved and unpaved roads to and from campsites, which are good to drive on with a campervan. The condition of the roads in Belgium is fair to good. You will have to watch out for holes in the road surface, even on the busier motorways. In the countryside, too, many roads are tarmacked, but here too you should watch out for unevenness. Campervans do not pay tolls on Belgian roads.
