One Week in Belgium

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a one week getaway trip to Belgium for my partner and I in May, and could use some advice on an itinerary. We are early 30's; enjoy beautiful cities, nature, great food, Belgian beer, local culture.

Here's my thoughts:

Arrive on Saturday evening at Brussels Airport from United States; train to Ghent

Sunday: Ghent

Monday: Day trip to Bruges (including bike rentals to Damme); night in Ghent

Tuesday: Day trip to Belgian Coast (Ostende, ride the tram back and forth to De Panne); night in Ghent

Wednesday: Day trip to Ypres World War I sights and back to Ghent; then train to Antwerp for evening

Thursday: Antwerp

Friday: Day trip to Baarle Nassau (the town split between Netherlands and Belgium); night in Antwerp

Saturday: Train to Brussels airport; fly home

I realize we're skipping Brussels, but have often heard it can be skipped. I also know the Baarle Nassau daytrip is unique, but we really want to do that. Does this itinerary sound doable by public transit? Is Bruges okay on a Monday, when many places are closed?

Is there any part of Wallonia that shouldn't be missed? I'd appreciate any advice!
