Belgium is home to numerous medieval cities full of cathedrals, palaces, and abbeys as well as beautiful forested hills and famous historical sites. Brugge and Ghent are some of the best places to immerse yourself in an ancient town as both have been beautifully preserved over the centuries. If modern cities are more your thing, then Brussels and Antwerp are where it’s at, with the former being known for art deco architecture and grand squares, and the latter being a shopping destination for the well-to-do. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

The Royal Palace of Brussels is the official palace of the king and queen of Belgium and is located in the center of Brussels. Unlike royalty from many other nations, the royal family does not use the palace as their primary residence. Rather, the family lives in Royal Palace of Laeken just outside the city. The palace has a formidable presence on a long square called the Paleizenplein, which separates it from the nearby Brussels Park. The palace houses a significant part of the royal collection, including silverware, fine crystal, and furniture that belonged to Napoleon, King Louis Phillipe, and Leopold I and II. Each summer the palace opens its doors to visitors, who are given access to certain rooms.

In Dutch, the name of the castle means “castle of the counts.” It was built in 1180 by count Philip of Alsace, who modeled the castle after the castles of crusaders he encountered during the Second Crusade. The castle was built on the site of a former wooden castle. It was used as the seat of the Counts of Flanders and, once abandoned, was used as a prison and then a courthouse before eventually being left to decay. The castle was partially restored around the turn of the 20th century and visitors can now travel through it and climb to the top. A small museum inside has a variety of traditional torture devices on display.
