The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Old Chocolate House and Minnewater Lake. Do your shopping at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert and The Chocolate Line Bruges. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Bruges (Belfry of Bruges, Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, &more), Antwerpen-Centraal (in Antwerp) and Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle) (in Ghent). There's more to do: get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
