Belgium-Netherlands-Germany-France

Jump to last reply

I'm planning the below itinerary for 9 days in Europe. I know its packed. Its our travel style. Our goal was to experience a few days in the Netherlands and a few days in Belgium. Then cram a day in for Germany and France. This really comes down to a simple desire of checking them off a list. We'd love to stay longer and come back one day, but who knows if we can. At 35 years old, this is my second trip to Europe. Its been over five years since my first. It will be at least five years until my next.

Sunday- Arrive at 5am in Brussels and take a train to Amsterdam
Monday- Amsterdam
Tuesday- Amsterdam
Wednesday- Amsterdam (day trip to Waterland)
Thursday- Take AM train from Amsterdam to Bruges
Friday- Bruges
Saturday- Take AM train from Bruges to Brussels
Sunday- Brussels (day trip to Aachen on train)
Monday- Brussels (day trip to Paris on train)

Our interests are really just getting out and exploring. We don't typically like museums, or slow paced activities. We like the appeal of medieval towns, street food, and the surprises that come from wandering. For us, the train rides are going to be part of the experience and we're looking forward even to that. Taking my plans into account, would you make any modification? Does Aachen seem like the best German city to visit from Brussels, as far as ease of access, tourist appeal goes?

Also, I know there is allot of backtracking, but the plane tickets are bought. Looking at the map, and train routes, this is the best I could come up with. With the exception of Amsterdam to Bruges, these are all direct train rides.
