Boasting remnants from the Middle Ages, the ancient city of Ieper in West Flanders offers attractions that are as historically significant as Ghent and Bruges, but with fewer crowds.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ieper (Ypres): Brewery-Malthouse De Snoek (in Alveringem), Must Textile Museum (in Ronse) and Grand-Place de Mons (in Mons). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Menin Gate Memorial, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, stroll the grounds of Tyne Cot Cemetery, and learn about winemaking at Zilver Cruys Winery.

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
