Brussels is the capital of Belgium. But it is so much more than just a culture. In Belgium, the Flenders (Dutch speaking) and Wallonia (French speaking) who are divided in the country meet in their capital. I know there is a German enclave in the east but that is a bit further ;-). It is also the capital of the European Union (or, at least a lot of meetings happen here). The total city is home to 1,8 million people, including the suburbs. It is a mixed pot of different nationalities, making it a diverse city with a rich history. Perfect for a day trip!

In total, 52 are still intact today in Drenthe (and 2 in Groningen). 2 of those 52 are located in the small town of Havelte. Dolmen can be found all over Europe and even the world!
