MORE IN TONGEREN

Belgium’s first town is a delightful place for a city trip. Whether you like immersing yourself in history. Or love culture. Or prefer to go shopping or try some gastronomic favourites.  Tongeren has it all!

Rich past

Belgium’s first town exudes history. From the Roman and mediaeval town walls to the imposing Gothic basilica and the beguinage, protected as UNESCO world heritage sites.

Shopping Sundays

Tongeren is bustling on Sunday. With the largest antique and second-hand goods market in the Benelux. Or on the monthly Shopping Sundays, when all the shops open their doors and a large number of activities are organised for the whole family.

Gallo-Roman Museum

Visit the Gallo-Roman Museum and the distant past will keep you enthralled!

The Gallo-Roman Museum tells the story of the people in the region that we now call Limburg – from prehistory to the early Middle Ages. The museum has spared no expense to bring this account to life in a fascinating permanent exhibition.
The Gallo-Roman Museum organises regular temporary exhibitions too.

This means you can find out about new scientific knowledge and enjoy prize pieces from Belgium and abroad.
