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.
Escape the urban bustle at Te Boelaerpark and Sint-Annastrand. Do your shopping at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and Anspach Shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Antwerp (Sunset Beach & Peter Poussenier). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Atomium, admire the masterpieces at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, get engrossed in the history at Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles), and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

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.
