Brussels — 4 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.
Brussels is known for historic sites, museums, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, don't miss a visit to Atomium, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM).

To find where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Brussels road trip planning site.

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.
