3 days to split amongst Belgian cities

Jump to last reply

We will have just 3 full days and nights, and a car, leaving from and returning to Den Haag. FWIW, we are not "slow travelers" -- we like to pack a lot in. We love charm, history (but not in too much depth), architecture, street fairs, markets (both food and not), poking around shops, nice but not break-the-bank dining as well as casual pub-fare, etc. We'll visit a museum or two (prefer the Thyssen to the Prado, and generally prefer spending our time in history museums (such as the Newseum in DC, Ellis Island or the Tenement Museum in NY, the Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin) rather than art museums).

How would you split your time among Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp, Bruges? We've never been to Belgium before.
