Brussels — 3 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.
Do your shopping at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and Anspach Shopping. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Grand Place and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Antwerp (Te Boelaerpark, Sint-Annastrand, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Atomium, explore the world behind art at Magritte Museum, browse the exhibits of Belgian Comic Strip Center, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

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.
