Brussels — 4 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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Herge Museum and Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917. Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and Atomium. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Quai du Rosaire / Rozenhoedkaai (in Bruges) and Tyne Cot Cemetery (in Zonnebeke). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Train World, admire the landmark architecture of Guild Houses, take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin du Petit Sablon, and steep yourself in history at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

Plan my day in Brussels using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Washington, USA to Brussels is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Central European Standard Time, which is usually a 6 hour difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Washington in February: highs in Brussels hover around 41°F, while lows dip to 31°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Antwerp.

Antwerp — 5 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 Chocolate Nation and Museum De Reede. Discover out-of-the-way places like Red Star Line Museum and Graslei and Korenlei. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antwerp: Ghent (STAM Ghent City Museum & Museum Dr. Guislain). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Museum Plantin-Moretus, examine the collection at Museum Mayer van den Bergh, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Paul's Church, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Vlaeykensgang.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Antwerp trip itinerary planning site.

You can drive from Brussels to Antwerp in an hour. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. March in Antwerp sees daily highs of 52°F and lows of 34°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
