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.
Visiting Te Boelaerpark and Sint-Annastrand will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate Atomium and Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Antwerp (Antwerpen-Centraal & Sunset Beach). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, steep yourself in history at Grand Place, examine the collection at Belgian Comic Strip Center, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

Washington DC, USA to Brussels is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington DC to Brussels due to the time zone difference.

Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.

Venture out of the city with trips to Ghent (The Art Gallery of Saint Peter's Abbey, Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve, &more) and Beach De Haan (in De Haan). And it doesn't end there: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, examine the collection at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Our Lady Bruges, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the Holy Blood.

Belgium travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
