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.
Appreciate the collections at Atomium and Horta Museum (Musee Horta). Visit Grand Place and Parc du Cinquantenaire for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady, Te Boelaerpark, &more). Next up on the itinerary: buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, take in the exciting artwork at BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, make a trip to Belgian Comic Strip Center, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

Liege — 4 nights

The Fervent City

Although decidedly industrial on the outskirts, Liege also boasts impressive architecture.
For shopping fun, head to Chestret 5 Aurore Morisse or Toutes Directions. Step out of the city life by going to Domaine de Berinzenne and La Roche-aux-Faucons. Venture out of the city with trips to Bronnenwandeling (in Sint-Martens-Voeren), Maison de l'eau (in Verviers) and Le Ninglinspo (in Nonceveux). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Mechelse Heide, stroll through Domaine de Palogne, stroll the grounds of Ardennes American Cemetery, and explore the activities along Butgenbacher Lake.

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.
