Happy Famous Belgians

We’d like to invite you to have a bit of fun while learning some interesting facts about Belgium!

You’ve probably heard the joke : “Who can name ten famous Belgians?”

Well, as you’d expect, we can name dozens, hundreds even! They are often well-known celebrities whose Belgian origins are unknown because we Belgians don’t go in for misplaced national vainglory.

Our “Happy Families” game will introduce you to just a few famous Belgians and will arm you with useful facts for the next time you are on a quiz team or playing Trivial Pursuit.

If the game whets your appetite for more, then you’ll be pleased to learn that we are also offering you the opportunity to become a “South Belgium Convert” by discovering some of the marvels and delights awaiting you in Brussels and Wallonia, a destination full of surprises, a sort of “Latin Europe In A Nutshell”.
