Brussels — 2 nights

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): contemplate the long history of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), then admire the masterpieces at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, then explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, and finally examine the collection at Atomium.

Bruges — 4 nights

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 Belfry of Bruges 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: don't miss a visit to The Markt, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Our Lady Bruges, take an in-depth tour of Groeningemuseum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Bruges driving holiday planner.

You can drive from Brussels to Bruges in 1.5 hours. Other options are to take a train; or take a bus. In July, daily temperatures in Bruges can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough 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.
