Bastogne ©
Most travelers come to Bastogne for its touching war memorial and museum, built in honor of over 76,000 American soldiers who fought during the legendary Battle of the Bulge--one of the last German offensives in World War II.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mudia (in Redu), Domaine Des Grottes De Han (in Han-sur-Lesse) and Grandmenil Panther Tank Ausf. G (in Manhay). There's still lots to do: take a peaceful walk through La Grande Foret de Saint-Hubert, brush up on your military savvy at Bulge Relics Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Donat, and explore the different monuments and memorials at German War Cemetery.

For ratings, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Bastogne trip itinerary builder site.

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Antwerp (Food Tours, Cathedral of Our Lady, &more), Pairi Daiza (in Brugelette) and Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-over-de-Dijlekerk (in Mechelen). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, don't miss a visit to Atomium, admire the landmark architecture of Parc du Cinquantenaire, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Brussels day trip planner.
