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 27th (Fri): sample the tasty concoctions at De Koninck Antwerp City Brewery, then don't miss a visit to Dijlepad, then examine the collection at Atomium, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Here are some ideas for day two: take a peaceful walk through Sonian Forest, take an in-depth tour of Fort Breendonk, get engrossed in the history at Museum Plantin-Moretus, then see the interesting displays at Rubens House (Rubenshuis), and finally steep yourself in history at Grand Place.
