Copenhagen or bust?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. I am planning a trip in mid April with my family of 6 (four children ages 13-21) to our ancestral lands of the Netherlands and Norway, and need help deciding whether to do a couple days in a third country or not. We will have 11.5 days on the ground, and are planning the following:

2.5 days in Amsterdam

3 days in surrounding areas of Netherlands: Broek in Waterland/Monnickendam/Marken; Keukenhof/Leiden; Delft/The Hague

4 days in Norway: 2 in Oslo and surrounding areas (visiting ancestral villages); 1 doing Norway in a Nutshell; 1 in Bergen

That leaves me two more days and I'm not sure of the best thing to do with them. I was originally thinking of dipping down into Belgium to see Bruges or Ghent because I've heard great things about those places. Now I am thinking that instead we would go to Copenhagen for two days. We do have ancestors that came from some villages near that city in Denmark, and if we did it, we could also take the night ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo, which sounds like a nice experience.

My questions are these: Am I trying to do/see too much by taking 2 days to Belgium or Copenhagen? Which place would be better from a tourist standpoint (ancestry aside)? Would it be better instead to add a couple more days to Netherlands or Norway? Keep in mind that it isn't summertime but am traveling in mid April (primarily to mesh this with spring break and so we can see the Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse).
