Brussels

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History and René Magritte Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Train World, admire the landmark architecture of Parc du Cinquantenaire, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and don't miss a visit to Atomium.

For reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Brussels online visit planner.

Amman, Jordan to Brussels is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Amman to Brussels. Traveling from Amman in September, you will find days in Brussels are cooler (21°C), and nights are slightly colder (11°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can go by car to Dinant.

Dinant

Located along the Upper Meuse Valley, the city of Dinant features colorful buildings framing its famous church and a clifftop citadel in the background.
You'll explore and learn at Maison Leffe and Maison Adolphe Sax. Take a break from the city and head to Parc de Furfooz and Grotte La Merveilleuse. Change things up with a short trip to Chateau de Modave in Modave (about 36 minutes away). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Citadelle de Dinant, get to know the fascinating history of Les Draisines De La Molignée, explore the ancient world of Les ruines du Chateau Fort de Montaigle, and explore the historical opulence of Le Chateau de Lavaux Sainte-Anne.

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
