The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Venture out of the city with trips to Gravensteen (in Ghent) and Bruges (Minnewater Lake, Belfry of Bruges, & more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Grand Place, examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

Expect a daytime high around 7°C in December, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
