An evening in (between Brussels and Osnabruck?)

Jump to last reply

Hello friends, my wife and 20 and 21 year old sons will arrive at the Brussels airport on a Friday afternoon in July where we rent a car. We went to arrive near Osnabruck in northwestern Germany the next day around 1pm.

Where might we stay Friday night? We're looking for a charming place, to walk through an interesting area, have a nice meal, and maybe see a historic site the next morning for an hour or so before continuing our trip.

At first I thought of just staying in Brussels, but it appears to be a commercial city without a lot of tourist appeal from the little I read. Plus, the whole ISIS thing doesn't look enticing right now.

So, looking at the map, some of the cities between Brussels and Osnabruck could include:
Antwerp, Eindhoven, Venlo, Aachen, Cologne etc.

I've been to Cologne (just the train station and cathedral) and could go back, but seems like a lot of traffic to fight and its a bit out of the way.

This is just a stop over for one night, and am not familiar with the area, so wonder if anyone had any suggestions on a charming/scenic city to hang out in for a few hours.

Thanks,

Chris
