Belgium - Amsterdam - Dusseldorf

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving Brussels Charleroi at 6pm on May 5th. Have 4 1/2 days (6th thru 9th and 1/2 day on 10th) to split between Belgium and Amsterdam. 1/2 day to make way to Dusseldorf on May 10th for our flight to US on May 11th. Was thinking of combination of 3 nights in Brussels and 2 nights in Amsterdam (6th night at Dusseldorf airport for flight home).

However also considering Bruges as an alternative to Brussels, maybe spending 2 nights, then Brussels 1 night and then Amsterdam 2 nights. Or just bypass Brussels entirely and do 3 Bruges and 2 Amsterdam or vice versa.

Recognize lot of moving around but trying to see (and I understand seeing isn't necessarily experiencing).

So my questions are these :

1 - choosing Bruges for 2 or 3 nights and skipping Brussels. What are the advantages of each city.
2 - doing just 2 nights in Belgium and 3 in Amsterdam

Appreciate any feedback Fodorites can offer.
