Bruges — 4 nights

Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Historic Centre of Brugge and Ghent City Center are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Bruges: Art Center Horus (in Sint-Martens-Latem) and Ghent (Gravensteen & Saint Nicholas Church). There's still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, examine the collection at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, explore the activities along Minnewater Lake, and get engrossed in the history at Onze-Lieve-Vrouw ter Potterie.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Bruges vacation planner.

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.
