I've recently paid a visit to three cities in Belgium (as well as a day-trip to the Netherlands).
My first instinct when arriving in a new town or city is to try to see it from above.
So in Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp and 's-Hertogenbosch, I ascended the combined 274 metres in two bell towers, one cathedral turned to an art centre and a museum to see these pretty towns laid out before me.
Bruges from the Belfry
Ghent from the Belfry
Antwerp from Museum Aan de Stroom
's-Hertogenbosch from the Hieronymus Bosch Art Centre
