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.
Popular historic sites such as Grand Place and Memorial Waterloo 1815 are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Atomium and Horta Museum (Musee Horta) capture your imagination. Step out of Brussels with an excursion to Hallerbos in Halle--about 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: make a trip to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis, wander the streets of Avenue Louise, and explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

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.
