The historical art route.
Belgium is surprising and beautiful. It is easy to sum up the diverse regions of Flanders and Brussels in a nutshell. Flanders and the European capital of Brussels offer holiday fun for almost everyone: relaxing bike rides in stunning natural landscapes, culinary delights in excellent restaurants, cultural highlights in historic buildings, renowned museums, and of course the vibrant metropolis of Brussels.

Day 1: Arrival in Brussels
Brussels offers a special multi-cultural charm with its squares, facades, galleries, and streets that make up the charm of this city. Discover the Grand Place, Atomium and Manneken Pis and all the other icons of the Belgian capital Brussels which of course every visitor must see. Brussels is also the city of Art Nouveau, which was brought to life by the Brussels architect Victor Horta. You can also visit the René-Magritte Museum, which is dedicated to the surrealist painter who lived in Brussels for a long time.
Day 2: Brussels - Mechelen, ~65 km

Before continuing onto Mechelen you should take a walk to the old market and the Begijnhof area. Mechelen, the city on the river Dyle is characterized by historic buildings, which are derived mostly from the time of the Burgundies. Also worth seeing is the toy and clock museum.
Day 3: Mechelen - Bornem/Temse, ~35 km
