The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Brussels is known for museums, historic sites, nightlife, shopping, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Grand Place, contemplate the long history of Parc du Cinquantenaire, admire the landmark architecture of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and examine the collection at Horta Museum (Musee Horta).

To see traveler tips, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Brussels trip itinerary tool .

Bruges

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Change things up with these side-trips from Bruges: Ghent (Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle), Saint Bavo's Cathedral, & 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 Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk, and contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake.

To find reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Bruges trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by car from Brussels to Bruges takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In April in Bruges, expect temperatures between 15°C during the day and 5°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive back home.
