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 René Magritte Museum capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Hallerbos and Sint-Annastrand. Venture out of the city with trips to Memorial Waterloo 1815 (in Braine-l'Alleud) and Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady, Te Boelaerpark, &more). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, examine the collection at Belgian Comic Strip Center, contemplate the long history of Grand Place, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

Make your Brussels itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Washington DC, USA to Brussels is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is 6 hours.

Venice of the North

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.
