The Hi Belgium Pass gives tourists easy access to the wonderful things Belgium has to offer.

The Burgundian lifestyle, a fascinating and versatile history, beautiful art cities, contemporary design, many summer festivals, world-renowned beer… Belgium’s culinary and cultural offer, along with its compact size, make it a great destination for a weekend getaway. Nevertheless analysis shows that Belgium doesn’t have the tourist reputation it deserves. Various tourist offices and organisations aim to change this by introducing the Hi Belgium Pass.
With the Hi Belgium Pass, planning a weekend trip to Belgium becomes a breeze. For only 149 euro, weekend trippers fly Brussels Airlines to Brussels Airport from 50 different airports in 18 countries, take unlimited train rides and get access to many different attractions and museums in 2 Belgian cities of choice. The only thing left to do is choosing the two Belgian cities to visit during the weekend.
Participating cities are Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp, Liège, Ghent, Mechelen and Leuven. In the near future, other cities will join the initiative to offer even more choice. The only condition for traveling on the Hi Belgium Pass is that tourists fly in on Thursday, Friday or Saturday and out on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. The offer is valid throughout the year. The pass is available for tourists from Germany, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Lithuania, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Czech Republic, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The Hi Belgium Pass can be booked via brusselsairlines.com.
The Hi Belgium Pass is an initiative of Brussels Airlines, together with Brussels Airport, the Belgian Railways, several tourist offices (Toerisme Vlaanderen, Visit Brussels, Belgique-Wallonie, Brussels Museum Council) and the cities of Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Leuven, Liège and Mechelen.
It is the first time that an important group of tourist operators in Belgium work together to promote their country abroad with a concrete travel formula.
“With the Hi Belgium Pass we put Belgium on the map more than ever”, says Brussels Airlines CEO Bernard Gustin. He adds: “Never before was traveling to Belgium as advantageous as it is now. The Hi Belgium Pass is also very interesting for the many Europeans who have family in Belgium or for the Belgian expats who want to offer a weekend to their friends and families abroad.”
