We discover the historical and cultural heritage of this charming town in the province of Limburg, the country’s oldest city, with Roman roots.
The highlights of Tongeren are the basilica, the beguinage, the Teseum museum with the treasury of the basilica and the Romanesque cloister and – famous among all Belgian schoolchildren – the amazing Gallo-Roman museum.
And, of course, the statue of Ambiorix, the leader of the local Gallic tribe who gave Julius Caesar a lot of headaches (“Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae”).
This is a project that we hope to confirm soon, possibly adapted to the prevailing Covid measures at the time.
Please keep an eye on this website, which we will update regularly.
