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.

And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Atomium, browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, steep yourself in history at Serres Royales De Laeken, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Graslei and Korenlei and STAM Ghent City Museum. Explore Antwerp's surroundings by going to Ghent (Patershol, Ghent City Center, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady, examine the collection at Rubens House (Rubenshuis), admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Cogels Osylei.

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Antwerp online trip itinerary maker.
