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.
Graslei and Korenlei and STAM Ghent City Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Antwerp's surroundings by going to Ghent (Ghent City Center & Patershol), Begijnhof Lier (in Lier) and Beguinage (in Hoogstraten). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady, examine the collection at MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, get a sense of history and politics at Town Hall (Stadhuis), and admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal.
