Brussels

Brussels ©
The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Royal Palace of Brussels and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Pairi Daiza (in Brugelette) and Antwerp (Antwerp Zoo (Dierentuin), Cathedral of Our Lady, &more). And it doesn't end there: ponder the world of politics at Parlamentarium, explore the activities along Etangs d'Ixelles, get a taste of the local shopping with Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, and examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM).

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Brussels. In November, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can travel to Koksijde Bad.

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Old Chocolate House and de Bier Tempel. Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle) and Historic Centre of Brugge are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Ieper (Ypres) (In Flanders Fields Museum & Menin Gate Memorial), Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk en de Gravenkapel (in Kortrijk) and Ghent (Graslei and Korenlei, Ghent City Center, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Stadhuis, explore the world behind art at Sint-Janshospitaal, explore the activities along Minnewater Lake, and see the interesting displays at Historium Brugge.
