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.
Visit Historic Centre of Brugge and Cathedrale Saint Sauveur de Bruges for their historical value. Gravensteen and Onze-Lieve-Vrouw ter Potterie will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Beach De Haan (in De Haan), Mariakerke Beach (in Ostend) and De Panne Beach (in De Panne). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Our Lady Bruges, identify plant and animal life at Damvallei, and steep yourself in history at Basilica of the Holy Blood.

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.
