Why Tongeren?

Five reasons to choose Tongeren.

An inspiring destination

Tongeren is not an ordinary conference destination. We like to keep things small and authentic. We believe that meetings can be different. A change of scenery inspires. Tongeren is the ideal place to inundate small to medium-sized (meeting) teams or to let them escape.

Extraordinary locations

Tongeren has premium hotels, restaurants and meeting locations. When we mention ‘unique’ locations, we really do mean ‘unique’.

Let’s get personal

The staff of Tourism Tongeren and Tongeren’s hotels, restaurants and cafés work closely together. We help organise your event from a personal approach, for free and completely customised!

A foodie’s paradise

Tongeren boasts lots of top gastronomic addresses, cosy brasseries and cafés. You can mix and match endlessly between authentic spots with traditional (regional) dishes as well as hip locations. Love for Belgium’s oldest city clearly goes through the stomach!

Excellent accessibility


Tongeren has occupied a particularly central location in the Euregio for centuries. Moreover, accommodations and public transportation are within walking distance of each other in the city centre of Tongeren.
