‘Zie magazine’ is a very thorough Flemish magazine for all the family. The articles it features cover a wide variety of social issues and they do not shy away from going off the beaten track, but without ever falling into flat sensationalism. Besides the classic topics such as relationships, film actors, fashion, culture, architecture, famous Flemings, society, sports, health and tourism, topics you would not expect are covered with fairly long articles, in an engaging way. The magazine is best compared to France’s Paris Match but with more articles and less advertising.
The magazine was issued with exceptional care and is decorated with a lot of quality photos.
