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.
Head to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and BOZAR Centre for Fine Artsfor plenty of shopping. Get some historical perspective at Grand Place and Parc du Cinquantenaire. Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Antwerp (Sint-Annastrand & Te Boelaerpark) and Fort 5 (in Edegem). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Atomium, examine the collection at Belgian Comic Strip Center, explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, and brush up on your military savvy at Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History.

Belgium travel guide

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.
