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 The Domain of the Caves of Han and Tyne Cot Cemetery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Bruges (Stadhuis, Historic Centre of Brugge, & more), Ghent (St Michael's Bridge, Graslei and Korenlei, & more) and Ieper (Ypres) (Menin Gate Memorial & Last Post ceremony). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Grand Place, examine the collection at Atomium, brush up on your military savvy at Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History, and explore the galleries of Memorial 1815.
