Brussels — 5 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.
Let the collections at Atomium and Horta Museum (Musee Horta) capture your imagination. Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Antwerp (Te Boelaerpark & Sint-Annastrand) and Fort 5 (in Edegem). There's much more to do: make a trip to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, admire the landmark architecture of Parc du Cinquantenaire, and brush up on your military savvy at Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History.

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.
