Brussels — 5 nights

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Atomium, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis, and explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Brussels attractions planner.

Belgium travel guide

4.2
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
