Brussels ©
The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Bruges (Minnewater Lake, The Markt, & more). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, examine the collection at Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art, don't miss a visit to Grand Place, and engage your brain at Atomium.

To find reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Brussels itinerary planner.

Getting from Amsterdam to Brussels by train takes about 2 hours. Other options: drive; or fly. In October, daily temperatures in Brussels can reach 17°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
