Maaseik is located approximately 65 miles (105 kilometers) from Brussels, the national capital, and about 110 miles (177 kilometers) from Bruges.
Vacationing in just one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow window into the broader personality of a region. So allow time to delve into Flemish Region's other attractions. While here, consider a trip to the Maasmechelen Village Outlet and Hoge Kempen National Park in and around Maasmechelen, roughly 9 miles (14 kilometers) to the northeast of Maaseik.
Genk, is another interesting place to visit. It is around 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Maaseik and offers a great selection of visitor attractions, including Europlanetarium, Bokrijk Open Air Museum and Cristal Arena. If you're still looking for things to do in the city centre, be sure to check out C-mine and Hangar 58 before you head back to Maaseik.
When the sun is shining, why don't you explore Flemish Region's open-air markets?. Houses of the holy are often the best places to experience a region's spiritual and religious cultures. The churches throughout Flemish Region are no exception.
Learn from the wisdom of the locals by signing up for one of the cycling tours, culinary tours and city walking tours.
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when you're ready to say "Au revoir / À bientôt", you'll still have wonderful photos and memories to take home.
