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.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Thu): find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, see the interesting displays at Atomium, then appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis, and finally make a trip to Grand Place. Keep things going the next day: steep yourself in history at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), then browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, then admire the masterpieces at Magritte Museum, and finally explore the galleries of Belgian Comic Strip Center.

To find traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Brussels trip itinerary planner.

Accra, Ghana to Brussels is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Accra to Brussels due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Accra in April, expect Brussels to be cooler, temps between 15°C and 4°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Bruges.
