Tongeren Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 117 photos

We hadn't planned to visit Tongeren on our road trip through Europe. We planned to head out from Brubach in Germany and straight to Lier to meet up with vt friends. But when KShezz said that she would like to come to Lier and join us, we offered to pick her up from her home in Tongeren.

Kirsty offered to show us around a bit and we gladly accepted. More about that in my travelogue.

My first impression of Tongeren was a small town that I immediately felt comfortable in. Maybe this had something to do with the friendly natives and lack of throngs of tourists plus the nice countryside.

First time in a new country, you have to try a local beer. This one Grimberben went down real well. A nice introduction to Belgium beers! :o)

Check out my Travelogue for a funny GPS story.

    Glad to see that you visited Tongeren. I really loved this little town and the day we visited, there was an antique market going on.
