Belgium's Finest

For art admirers in Brussels, it cannot get much better than the hilltop Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium complex. To say it is sprawling is a bit of an understatement; over 20,000 pieces of art are housed here, split in between the Old Masters Museum, the Modern Museum, and the Magritte Museum. Two smaller, off-site galleries (dedicated to Constantin and Wiertz) are run by the same institution. The Magritte Museum (opened in 2009) features a plethora of mind-boggling surrealist works by the Belgian artist who famously painted a pipe and wrote under it, "This is not a pipe." Renowned inhabitants of the Old Masters section include van der Weyden, Jordaens, Campin, and both of the Bruegels; there is even an entire exhibition room dedicated to Rubens. Grab an audioguide and spend the day admiring the best of the best in Belgian art.

Utrip Tips

*Tickets can be purchased separately for all three on-site museums, but combined tickets are the best deal.
