The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Antwerp (MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, Cathedral of Our Lady, & more), Haverwerf (in Mechelen) and Pairi Daiza (in Brugelette). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Grand Place, examine the collection at Atomium, get in on the family fun at Mini-Europe, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).
