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 René Magritte Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Antwerp (Antwerpen-Centraal & Sunset Beach). There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, contemplate the long history of Grand Place, examine the collection at Belgian Comic Strip Center, and step into the grandiose world of Royal Palace of Brussels.

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).

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.
