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 Bruges (Nepomucenusbrug, Historic Centre of Brugge, &more). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, admire the landmark architecture of Parc du Cinquantenaire, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

To see where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Brussels online tour builder.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can drive to Antwerp.

Its reputation as a business-centric city distracts many visitors from the real draws of Antwerp: its historical sites, architectural beauty, and lively culture.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antwerp: Beguinage (in Hoogstraten), Ghent (Ghent City Center, Gravensteen, &more) and Kinderboerderij Barelhoeve (in Bornem). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal, pause for some photo ops at Pieter Appelmans Monument, stop by Pierre Marcolini, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady.

To find ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Antwerp online trip builder.

Traveling by car from Brussels to Antwerp takes an hour. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In August, daytime highs in Antwerp are °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
