The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Venture out of the city with trips to Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)) and Ghent (St. Nicholas' Cathedral, Gravensteen, & more). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge, explore the activities along Minnewater Lake, admire the striking features of Basilica of the Holy Blood, and make a trip to The Markt.

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Bruges trip itinerary planning site .

Maputo, Mozambique to Bruges is an approximately 22.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Central African Time (CAT) to Central European Time (CET), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Maputo in July, expect nights in Bruges to be about the same, around 15°C, while days are a bit cooler, around 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to take a train to Brussels.

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 Provinciaal Groendomein Vrijbroekpark (in Mechelen) and Antwerpen-Centraal (in Antwerp). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Grand Place, examine the collection at Atomium, find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

For reviews, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Brussels holiday planning site .

Take a train from Bruges to Brussels in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. In August, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
