Daytrip from Amsterdam to Bruge?

Jump to last reply

We are considering doing a day trip to Bruge from Amsterdam in early August.

After doing some research, I know it to be a 3 hour train ride each way. Taking a fairly early (not the earliest) train to Bruge and then catching the last train back would give us about 9 hours (arrival to departure) not accounting for time into town from train station and back.

We like art museums, walking around quaint little towns, sitting down at a cafe and people watching, churches...think you get the idea.

Before suggestions start rolling in to start or end the trip with a couple 2 or 3 nights in Bruge, before or after Amsterdam, that is not a plausible suggestion. Hotel is already booked and paid for. The only remotely plausible overnight in Bruge would be a very inexpensive place as we would then be paying double accommodations for a room in two different cities.

We are not so naive to think we will see "everything" in a daytrip. It's just a nice little excursion to see a place we have never been before. That's not to say we would not go back some day either.

Bottom line question is, Is it worth the ~180euros(RT, 2 pax) to make this day trip or will we really feel like we spent a lot of time and money to get there and just be extremely disappointed we don't have more time. Seems most threads I saw through searching on here indicate people stay a good 2, if not 3 or 4 nights.

Thanks in advance
