Amsterdam to Paris with Battle of Bulge in between?

Jump to last reply

Hello all. Well, I scored some amazing business class tickets this week on a crazy sale. Into Amsterdam and out of Paris. Mid March 2016.

I had been in the middle of planning a Vienna, Prague, Berlin trip, so this is a bit of a whirlwind. I decided I'd rather fly business class than stick to the old plan. So there you have it. Laying down in a plane trumps all.

I will have 11 nights on the ground. We have never been to Amsterdam, but have been to Paris twice. I think Paris could be only 2-3 nights and we'd be fine with that.

I am looking for advice on how to structure the trip. From the little I've read, Bruges sounds very quaint and picturesque. But DH has a lot of interest in WWII, and I know the Ardennes with a private guided tour would interest him. And maybe he will forgive me because he's not going to Berlin.

Can anyone suggest how to stitch this together, and where to stay in the Ardennes area? Bastogne doesn't really look cute (I know why, of course) but it may be the most convenient.

If I have to skip Bruges because its in the wrong part of Belgium, it would be nice to put back in something with pretty architecture and history. Maybe we can do both.

What about Spa? or Trier? or even Luxembourg City?

Just getting started here, so looking for advice. Also, if we should rent a car or try to tackle this via train?

Thanks!
