Brussels/Brugges vs 1 day off Berlin??

Jump to last reply

My hubby and I (both are 36) are going to Europe in October.

Our trip plans are:
1) USA to Istanbul-4 nights
2) Fly to Berlin-4 nights (plane tix are bought already)
3) Train or Fly to Brussels-2 nights
4) Train to Amsterdam-3 nights (with a quick stopover in Antwerp on the way)
5) Amsterdam to USA

After reading about Brussels and Brugges, now we are debating about whether or not to add a day on to Brussels and chop a day off of Berlin to see Brugges. Any thoughts?

We have been to Munich and love Germany so were thinking that having that extra day in Berlin would be nice to walk around, eat, drink, and chill since we are always so busy on our trips. To note, we are not big museum people and like vibrant, fun, trendy cities. I am just trying to get a feel for Brussels vs Brugges and was thinking it might be like a Madrid vs Barcelona?

Thanks for the help!
