Accommodation options in Tongeren
Part of our pre-fun consists of booking accommodation. For us, combining a visit to a belfry with an overnight stay near it completes the experience and gives us more time to gather information.

During our visit to Tienen, we spontaneously visited some premises to take care of the inner man as well. If you have any additions or an absolute tip that a visit to Tienen should be culinary with, please send a message to: email@example.com.
Café ‘t Poorthuis 2.
Old pubs always have an edge with us. Café ‘t Poorthuis is the epicenter of Sunday’s big antique market. They open the doors as early as 6:30 a.m. with great bacon-filled bacon buns!
2. Restaurant ‘t Vrijthof
In terms of location, Restaurant ‘t Vrijthof is almost inevitable when visiting the belfry of Tongeren. It offers a nice menu and also unobstructed views of the basilica and Ambiorix.
3. Restaurant Magis
Unfortunately, we were too late on our first visit but next time we will definitely make reservations at this starred restaurant. Heard a lot of good things about it!
