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.
Atomium and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) will appeal to museum buffs. Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Vismarkt (in Mechelen), Antwerp (Pierre Marcolini, Te Boelaerpark, &more) and Hallerbos (in Halle). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, take an in-depth tour of Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles), explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, and admire the landmark architecture of Parc du Cinquantenaire.

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.
