Lose yourself in the cobblestone-lined streets of Brussels.
Here's a sneak peak of your getaway activities:
Museums, music, pastries and more
Indulge your inner child at this museum dedicated to comic strip art. The building design is also a Art Nouveau masterpiece.
Did you know that Belgium has the highest concentration of comic strip authors than any other country in the world?
Fill up all your senses with intoxicating art, music, cinema, dance, theatre, and more at BOZAR.
Belgium is a mecca for the creative arts. Time to get inspired!
A museum for your ears! At the MIM, you'll listen to fancy harpsichords, weird-looking horns, and ancient African harps.
The 1899 museum building itself is also a masterpiece of steel and glass in the Art Nouveau style. Don't miss the rooftop café.
Nothing is ordinary in this UNESCO World Heritage house. Here, metal rails and wood furniture flow like natural forms. You will feel as if you're in a fantasy world.
This is the actual house and atelier of the Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta.
Calm your spirit at the Notre-Dame of Sablon, and revel in the Gothic architecture.
Try guessing how old this church is... think 100 years before Christopher Columbus discovered America!
"They don't make them like they used to..." Couldn't be truer than shopping malls. Treat yourself to a glorious shopping experience at this 1847 gallerie.
Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert was basically created to replace a sketchy neighborhood with a fancy mall where the rich can go for luxury shopping. Surprise, surprise...
Mussels at Restaurant Francois
Brussels is home of mussels. Try them raw or in a casserole in this 1922 historic restaurant.
The original Le Pain Quotidien
You've probably seen chains of this brand elsewhere in the world, but be sure to stop by this rustic bakery for a nice breakfast.
Get Cozy with a martini at L'Archiduc
For extra flair, go during the weekend for live jazz.
Embrace all things weird at the Atomium
Built as a monument to science for the 1958 World Fair, you can actually go up into this giant model of an iron crystal and admire the exhibits in its spheres.
Day trip to Antwerp
The Diamond Capital is just under an hour's train ride from Brussels. It's also home to the hugely influential Baroque painter Sir Peter Paul Rubens. Be it art, design, or fashion, Antwerp has got it all.
Day trip to Bruges
This medieval wonderland is the birthplace of oil painting, the first stock exchange, and the first printed book in English. Hop on a horse-drawn cab down the cobble stone streets and let the scenery transport you to a different century.
