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.
Grand Place and Groeningemuseum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Ghent (Graffiti Street, Saint Bavo's Cathedral, &more) and Bruges (Gentpoort, Historic Centre of Brugge, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Atomium, don't miss a visit to Belgian Comic Strip Center, explore the world behind art at Magritte Museum, and buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Brussels fast, fun, and easy.

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Graslei and Korenlei and Design Museum Gent. Venture out of the city with trips to Ghent (Ghent City Center, Food Tours, &more). The adventure continues: examine the collection at MAS - Museum aan de Stroom and admire the landmark architecture of Antwerpen-Centraal.
