3 days in Brussels

3 days in Brussels
Unlike Paris, Brussels doesn't set out to make you fall in love. In just three days, this capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe, will allow you to soak in its uniquely muddled characterics -- from its cobbled medieval square, the Grand-Place, to the enticing scents of Belgian waffles and beer to the even more addicting shopping-- and then suddenly Brussels has gotten in your skin.
Good for: Families, Groups, Seniors, Individuals
Seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
