The peaceful city of Bruges is located in the Flemish Region of Belgium. Mostly known for its meandering canals, medieval architecture, and a range of delicacies to both eat and drink, this small Belgian city is a delight to discover.
Bruges is home to some of the best-preserved medieval buildings in the world, allowing visitors to wander through the cobbled streets and truly feel whisked back in time. With its many small squares and quaint streets, it's easy to see why the city is seen as one of the world's most romantic cities.
Like most of Belgium, Bruges is a mecca for food and drink. With the worldwide fame of Belgian beer, it's no surprise that the city is home to the Beer Museum and several breweries with daily tours. Bruges' largest beer shop, "2be Beer Wall,'' offers an endless variety of beer, but there is no shortage of smaller bars to sample the local crafts. If the beer doesn't entice you, then perhaps world-famous Belgian chocolates will. Almost every street in Bruges has a chocolate shop, making it near impossible to resist the temptation to sample some. Hey, dark chocolate is healthy, right?
Belgium's excellent rail system makes it easy to travel to Bruges. Trains arrive from Brussels every 30 mins, easily connecting Bruges to Brussels' Airport. International bus services also provide access to the city from many other European destinations.

Leverkusen is a small city in the west of Germany. This comparatively young city owes much of its growth to the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
Although Leverkusen may not be on your radar, what puts this city on the map is the BayArena. Around 30,000 football fans gather at the arena to watch Bayer Leverkusen play, and daily tours are available for those who arrive when it's not a match day.
Another popular attraction in the city is the impressive Japanese Gardens. You'll quickly forget which continent you're in while you stroll through these serene gardens with koi ponds, small wooden bridges, Japanese maple trees, and lanterns. The tea pavilion in the center makes for great photos, especially when the surrounding trees blossom.
If you're in town to shop, visit the vast Rathaus-Galerie mall to indulge in shopping the German and international brands and dining at one of the many cafes and restaurants.
Leverkusen is located close to two international airports, Cologne-Bonn and Dusseldorf. High-speed trains run to these cities, and slower regional trains offer connections to Leverkusen. Other destinations throughout Europe are accessible via rail or intercity bus, so continuing from Leverkusen to Brussels or Amsterdam is a piece of cake.
