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.
Get some cultural insight at Grand Place and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM). Get some historical perspective at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and Parc du Cinquantenaire. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Antwerp (Sint-Annastrand, Te Boelaerpark, &more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Atomium, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), sample the tasty concoctions at Cantillon Brewery, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

For maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Brussels trip site.

Washington DC, USA to Brussels is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Central European Standard Time, which is usually a 6 hour difference. When traveling from Washington DC in February, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Brussels: temperatures range from 41°F by day to 31°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to drive 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.
