Brussels — 3 nights

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 a sense of the local culture at Grand Place and Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Step out of the city life by going to Relax Divers Meise and Arboretum Tervuren. There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Atomium, admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum, see the interesting displays at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

For other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Brussels trip itinerary planner.

Washington DC, USA to Brussels is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a 6 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Washington DC in September, with highs in Brussels at 65°F and lows at 50°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can go by car to Spa.

Spa — 2 nights

Spa is a Belgian town, located in the Province of Liège, and is the town where the word spa comes from. On the 27th (Sun), identify plant and animal life at Forestia, identify plant and animal life at La Roche-aux-Faucons, and then hike along Le Ninglinspo. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get outside with Bronnenwandeling and then trek along La Vallee de la Hoegne.

To plan Spa vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Getting from Brussels to Spa by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In September in Spa, expect temperatures between 69°F during the day and 49°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) so you can drive to Bruges.

Bruges — 4 nights

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Groeningemuseum and Gravensteen. Escape the urban bustle at Minnewater Lake and Provincial Domain Bulskampveld. Step out of Bruges to go to Ghent and see Ghent City Center, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, examine the collection at Friet Museum, make a trip to The Markt, and admire the landmark architecture of Belfry of Bruges.

Plan my Bruges trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Spa to Bruges in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In September, daytime highs in Bruges are 67°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) so you can catch the flight back home.

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.
