Amsterdam to Brussels and in between. Please critique!

Jump to last reply

I am about to press that submit button on the airline website but I just need to have my Fodors friends (who have always been there for me) critique my decisions. I wanted to go to Amsterdam and thought about combining it with Ireland. Germany was not a consideration because we did an extensive German vacation all along the Rhine, Mosel , Cologne, Dusseldorf etc. After reading several postings I decided there was a lot to do making my way from Amsterdam to Brussels doing and open jaw to and from New York. My husband and I are retired so we have plenty of time. I had considered Ireland but decided I would either be rushing through Ireland or missing some interesting places in the Netherlands and Brussels.We will be doing public transportation. My husband and I love art, food,outdoor stuff ( I like to bicycle but not in traffic) and we love local happenings. We love outsider art. Here is my itinerary draft:

Fly from NY at the end of August: return from Brussels mid September (19 or 20th)

Spend 5 days in Amsterdam ( Leave early on day 5 and do Hague on way to Delft)
Spend 2 days in Delft
Spend 2 days in Otterlo ( Do Arnhem Open Air Museum and Kroller-Muller Museum)
Spend 6 days in Bruges
Spend 2 days in Antwerp (Side trip to Ghent)
Spend 4 days in Brussels

Did I miss anyplace or am I spending too much or too little time in any one place?

Thanks!
