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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Grand Place and Groeningemuseum. Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Bruges (Provinciaal Hof, The Markt, &more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Atomium, steep yourself in history at Serres Royales De Laeken, get a sense of history and politics at Abbaye de la Cambre, and don't miss a visit to Belgian Comic Strip Center.

Antwerp — 3 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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Graslei and Korenlei and Ghent City Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Antwerp: Ghent (STAM Ghent City Museum, Design Museum Gent, &more) and Beervelde Park (in Beervelde). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Our Lady, admire the landmark architecture of Antwerpen-Centraal, look for gifts at Pierre Marcolini, and see the interesting displays at Rubens House (Rubenshuis).
