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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Graslei and Korenlei and Ghent City Center. Explore Antwerp's surroundings by going to Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-over-de-Dijlekerk (in Mechelen) and Ghent (STAM Ghent City Museum, Design Museum Gent, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, make a trip to Begijnhof, admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal, and look for gifts at Adori Millennium.
