daylight hours in Belgium

We will be in Belgium Sept 3-5. I don't know if Europe has daylight savings time or not. How late does it stay light. We will be taking a day trip from Bruges to Leige, then circle around to the south through Namur and back to Bruges. We have several stops, but would like to be back close to Bruges by/before dark. How late can we be? I may need to exclude some activities if darkness falls before 8:00PM (20:00). Any guesses?

Summer time in all European countries runs from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October, except for Iceland, Belarus, Russia and Turkey which have no summer time.
These co-ordinated changeover dates were agreed by the EU, and non-EU countries use them as well, to avoid confusion. There was a time when some countries had different changeover dates, and not all countries used Summer Time, you can imagine the confusion.

You guys are awesome. I love the forum...I have had so many questions answered just reading all the posts. Thanks for taking time to answer. I opened the link and found exactly what I needed. There is a long twilight in Belguim like there is in the Pacific Northwest. So we have lots of time. Thanks again.
