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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Centre of Brugge and Belfry of Bruges. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Beach De Haan and Plage St. Andre. Explore Bruges' surroundings by going to Ghent (Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve & Gravensteen). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Our Lady Bruges, sample the tasty concoctions at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, and stop by The Chocolate Line Bruges.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Bruges trip maker site.

Washington DC, USA to Bruges is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington DC to Bruges due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Washington DC in March, expect nights in Bruges to be about the same, around 36°F, while days are little chillier, around 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to drive to Brussels.

Brussels — 4 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 outdoors at Hallerbos and Te Boelaerpark. Get some cultural insight at Grand Place and Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Loopgravenpad Mastenbos (in Kapellen) and Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady & Sir-Arthur). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Atomium, explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, contemplate the long history of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Eglise Saint Jacques Sur Coudenberg.

To find traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Brussels visit site.

Belgium travel guide

4.3
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.
