The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Visit Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule) for their historical value. Step off the beaten path and head to Parc du Cinquantenaire and Eglise Notre Dame Du Sablon. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Saint George's Memorial Church (in Ieper (Ypres)), Historic Centre of Brugge (in Bruges) and Tyne Cot Cemetery (in Zonnebeke). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Old Town of Durbuy, take in the waterfront at Graslei and Korenlei, contemplate the long history of Royal Palace of Brussels, and admire the landmark architecture of Guild Houses.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Brussels vacation planner.
