Brussels — 6 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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Grand Place and Belfry of Bruges. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Bruges (Historic Centre of Brugge, Stadhuis, &more). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Atomium, appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis, contemplate the long history of Parc du Cinquantenaire, and don't miss a visit to Belgian Comic Strip Center.

To find more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Brussels trip itinerary planning website.

Washington, USA to Brussels is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington to Brussels.
