Bruges — 5 nights

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.
Historic Centre of Brugge and Gravensteen are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Minnewater Lake and Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting Bruges side-trips: Saint Bavo's Cathedral (in Ghent), The Dunes of Bredene (in Bredene) and Mariakerke Beach (in Ostend). There's still lots to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, make a trip to The Markt, and stop by Carpentier-Goegebeuer.

To find reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Bruges trip planner.

Washington DC, USA to Bruges is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington DC to Bruges. When traveling from Washington DC in November, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Bruges: temperatures range from 51°F by day to 41°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Liege.

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.
