Traditional Drink and Food
Belgium has one of the highest densities of Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe,
but many Belgians' favourite foods are home-cooked comfort dishes
and street-vendor snack foods.

Flemish cuisine has a strong Dutch influence,
while Wallonian cooking is very similar to French with lots of rich sauces.
Most dishes are based around meat or fish,
and desserts are often rich pastries or chocolate
– and it's usually all washed down with wine or, the national drink, beer.

A discussion of Belgian culture may lead to discussing both those aspects of cultural life shared by 'all' or most of the Belgians, regardless of their language, and also, the differences between the cultural communities, the Flemings and the German-speaking community, viewed as more inclined towards Anglo-Saxon culture, and the French-speakers, viewed as more inclined towards French and other Latin cultures.

There are several legends behind this statue, but the most famous is the one about Duke Godfrey III of Leuven. In 1142, the troops of this two-year-old lord were battling against the troops of the Berthouts, the lords of Grimbergen, in Ransbeke (now Neder-Over-Heembeek). The troops put the infant lord in a basket and hung the basket in a tree to encourage them. From there, the boy urinated on the troops of the Berthouts, who eventually lost the battle.
Manneken Pis
Although the Manneken Pis in Brussels is the best-known, others exist. There is an ongoing dispute over which Manneken Pis is the oldest - the one in Brussels or the one in Geraardsbergen.
