Brussels — 5 nights

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Get a sense of the local culture at Grand Place and Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Atomium, make a trip to Belgian Comic Strip Center, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and steep yourself in history at Serres Royales De Laeken.

Plan a trip to Brussels easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Washington, USA to Brussels is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington to Brussels. When traveling from Washington in April, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Brussels: temperatures range from 55°F by day to 39°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can go by car to Bruges.

Belgium travel guide

Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
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.
