Dinand, Belgian Ardennes and Belgian speciality beers

Going to Belgium with your motorhome? Or just driving through Belgium? Great plan! Even though the weather is not guaranteed to be beautiful, there is plenty of beauty on offer. Think of the beautiful Ardennes region, picturesque villages and of course delicious speciality beers and French fries. With a little luck, you can experience it all.

The distances are small, so you can see a lot of this Burgundian country with a motorhome. Please read this information before you leave, so you can be sure that you are well prepared when you hit the road. Or download this PDF and take it with you on your motorhome trip. 

Overnight stops

Looking for an overnight stop in Belgium? Then search for campsites and motorhome pitches. Or a parking area (along the motorway), where you can park for a maximum of 24 hours.  An exception is the Antwerp region: you are not allowed to spend the night in a motorhome outside official camping areas in this region. Wild camping is prohibited in Belgium.

Other traffic rules

It is prohibited to use a triangle for towing in Belgium. This refers to a triangular tow bar that connects the towing vehicle and the vehicle being towed. In addition, a vehicle may only be towed if the towed vehicle cannot drive on its own.


In Belgium, there are low emission zones in Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp. You will find the admission requirements for the latter city here. If your motorhome does not meet these requirements, you can purchase an LEZ day pass up to 8 times a year. Brussels has an exception for motorhomes registered as vehicle type M (passenger car) and SA (camper van). If you want to drive your motorhome in the low emission zone in Ghent, then you have to register. Wallonia is introducing low-emission zones. You can find more information on this site.
