Ieper (Ypres)

— 2 nights

Wipers

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.
Kick off your visit on the 27th (Sat): learn about all things military at Atlantikwall Raversyde, then find something for the whole family at PlopsaLand De Panne, and then take an in-depth tour of In Flanders Fields Museum. On your second day here, get engrossed in the history at Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, then don't miss a visit to Tyne Cot Cemetery, then pause for some photo ops at Menin Gate Memorial, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Saint George's Memorial Church.

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.
