Brussels — 2 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 historical perspective at Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Memorial Waterloo 1815 and Serres Royales De Laeken. Change things up with a short trip to Hallerbos in Halle (about 36 minutes away). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum, browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, see the interesting displays at Atomium, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon.

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.
