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 Museum De Reede. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antwerp: Ghent (STAM Ghent City Museum, Ghent City Center, &more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, look for gifts at Pierre Marcolini, get to know the fascinating history of Grote Markt, and admire the landmark architecture of Antwerpen-Centraal.

To find ratings, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, use the Antwerp trip itinerary planner.
