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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and Belfry of Bruges. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Ghent (Saint Bavo's Cathedral, Gravensteen, &more) and Bruges (Brugse Vrije, Stadhuis, &more). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Atomium, get engrossed in the history at Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles), admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Jardin du Petit Sablon.

To find reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Brussels trip planner.

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 April, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Brussels: temperatures range from 55°F by day to 39°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Antwerp.
