Brussels — 5 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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mons Memorial Museum and Le Bois du Cazier. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Grand Place and Atomium. Venture out of the city with trips to Herge Museum (in Louvain-la-Neuve) and Bruges (The Markt, Torture Museum Oude Steen, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Train World, explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, steep yourself in history at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Brussels trip builder site.

Washington, USA to Brussels is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington to Brussels due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Washington in February, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Brussels: temperatures range from 41°F by day to 31°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Antwerp.

Antwerp — 4 nights

Its reputation as a business-centric city distracts many visitors from the real draws of Antwerp: its historical sites, architectural beauty, and lively culture.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Chocolate Nation and Red Star Line Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum De Reede and Vlaeykensgang. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antwerp: Ghent (STAM Ghent City Museum, Museum Dr. Guislain, &more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Museum Plantin-Moretus, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Paul's Church, make a trip to St. Anna's Tunnel / Pedestrians' Tunnel, and look for gifts at Grand Diamonds Jewelry.
