Hasselt, situated in East Belgium, is a paradise for shoppers. It's known around the world for its extensive and exclusive fashions. Shopping streets are plenty and filled with stylish shops. But there is more .....

Historical City Walk

Hasselt has a large number of places of interest, places that are worth visiting. We did a 'Historical City Walk' and saw nice buildings, monuments, city panoramas and historic fa├žades. Do the walk yourself through my 'Must See' section.

Japanese Garden

Visit this beautiful garden just outside of Hasselt via my 'Off The Beaten Path' section.

    It looks like a quintessential Belgium town with all the great architecture and class. Good presentation of the town.

    Looks verz chique and promising from the outside. Service was bad, long waiting. uruguan steaks were shoebottom, salad was just big salade leaves no decent dressing nor creativ plate, the shrimps and chicken were overcooked, the parma discount quality.

    Never heard of the place. Looks like I might have to pencil it in to my itinerary.

    Hi Helga, Thanks for visiting my Colombia page :-) Somehow I missed Hasselt when I was in Belgium a few years ago, so maybe I'll have to go back again one day.

    Great and detailed page. Wonderful pictures of Kapermolen Park and green space. Dangerous clothes shopping :-) and, a surprice, free city bus transportation (do the drivers are volunteers? :-).
