Driving in and around Belgium

Special attractions

Belgium has a rich automotive history dating right back to King Leopold II in the early 20th century. Leopold was a car enthusiast and was instrumental in building Belgium's extensive early road network.

Autoworld, Belgium's largest car museum is located in central Brussels and houses more than 350 vintage American and European cars dating from the late 1800s right up to the 1970s. The museum is an absolute must for petrol heads and its highlights include a 1930 Bugatti, a 1928 Bentley and several cars that were once owned by the Belgian Royal Family.

The Circuit de Spa Francorchamps is home to the Belgian Grand Prix and calls itself the most beautiful circuit in the world. Located in western Belgium, the Formula One circuit holds regular open days and you can even drive round this famous track on Public Driving Days.
