Brussels

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 ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 21st (Sat): take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), then admire the masterpieces at Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, then explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, and finally examine the collection at Atomium.

Bruges

— 4 nights

Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Historic Centre of Brugge and Groeningemuseum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Ghent (Saint Bavo's Cathedral, Gravensteen, &more). There's much more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, make a trip to The Markt, admire the striking features of Basilica of the Holy Blood, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Our Lady Bruges.

Make your Bruges itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Traveling by car from Brussels to Bruges takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.

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.
