Brussels — 11 nights

Capital of Europe

And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Guild Houses, don't miss a visit to Great Market Square (Grote Markt), steep yourself in history at Fort Breendonk, and learn about all things military at Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History.

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.
