Bruges

— 7 nights

Venice of the North

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 Ghent (St. Nicholas' Cathedral, Gravensteen, &more) and Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Historic Centre of Brugge, examine the collection at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Our Lady Bruges, and explore the activities along Minnewater Lake.

Maputo, Mozambique to Bruges is an approximately 22-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Central Africa Time to Central European Standard Time is minus 1 hour. When traveling from Maputo in July, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Bruges: temperatures range from 25°C by day to 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) to allow time to drive to 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.
Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Antwerpen-Centraal (in Antwerp) and Provinciaal Groendomein Vrijbroekpark (in Mechelen). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Grand Place, explore the world behind art at Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, don't miss a visit to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, and see the interesting displays at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM).

Belgium travel guide

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.
