Antwerp and Delft: Visiting both, which to spend a night in?

Jump to last reply

We're putting together our itinerary for 16 days this August. We'll be flying into Brussels but heading directly to Bruges, also visiting Ghent and Antwerp, then traveling to Amsterdam where we would also like to see Haarlem, Delft and the Hague, Kinderdijk, and possibly Zanfort am Zee for a taste of the seaside.

Here's today's question: both Antwerp and Delft sound like lovely places to spend a night. I'm not a fan of the one-night stay, but I also don't want to feel rushed in a place where I wish I could stay longer or miss seeing a town at night when that may be when it really shines.

We have enough time to spend 5 nights in Bruges (with a day trip to Ghent) and 5 nights in Amsterdam (with day trips to Kinderdijk, Haarlem, seaside) and also spend a night in Antwerp on the way from Bruges to Amsterdam and/or spend a night in Delft, also on the way to Amsterdam (we could easily do both).

Though we've driven all over Europe, so far it looks like all of our travel will be by train. Advice has been that the dense train system and difficulty with having a car in nearly every city, large or small, makes it wiser for us to use rail exclusively. This of course adds the baggage-on-the-train, baggage-off-the-train factor to the one-night stays. So we're on the fence.

Can you weigh in on which, if either, Antwerp or Delft you would recommend for an overnight vs a day trip?

Once our Benelux travels are over, we'll be spending a few nights in Reykjavik on the way home. So looking forward to this trip!
