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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Historic Centre of Brugge and Basilica of the Holy Blood. Museum-lovers will get to explore Groeningemuseum and Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Beach De Haan (in De Haan), Ghent (Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve & Gravensteen) and Plage d'Ostende (in Ostend). There's much more to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Our Lady Bruges, look for all kinds of wild species at Provincial Domain Bulskampveld, and admire the striking features of Florentijnse Loge.

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.
