Brussels — 7 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 some cultural insight at Historic Centre of Brugge and Atomium. Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Ghent (Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle) & Gravensteen) and Bruges (Torture Museum Oude Steen, Belfry of Bruges, &more). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, admire the striking features of Parc du Cinquantenaire, don't miss a visit to Belgian Comic Strip Center, and examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM).

Before you visit Brussels, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Antwerp — 2 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 Museum Voor Schone Kunsten. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antwerp: Ghent (Post Plaza, Ghent City Center, &more) and Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)). It doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Our Lady.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Antwerp online travel planner.
