This road trip takes you through Belgium's four world class art capitals. Start your journey in the Brueghel room in the Brussels Oldmasters Museum to get your introduction of Belgian's late medieval art. Continue your way to Antwerp where you will be amazed by Peter Paul Rubens paintings in the Royal Museum of Fine Art. While in Antwerp you might as well visit the Peter Paul Rubens house. Make your way to the romantic fairy-tale like Bruges, where you set out on an exploration of the Flemish primitives in the Groeningemuseum. The ultimate cherry on your cake of this art route is your visit to charming Ghent. Be overwhelmed by the magnificent Ghent Altarpiece 'The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb' by the van Eyck brothers, which is located in the St. Bavo's cathedral.

We strongly advise you to take this route over the course of a couple of days to fully explore and enjoy the scenic historical towns. Moreover, this allows you to contemplate the Flemish masterpieces in a pub over a tasty Belgian beer, while your car is safely parked.
