My husband and I will be traveling to Netherlands in April--tulip time--and want to see Amsterdam as well as small scenic towns in Netherlands and Belgium. We're in quandery as to whether to drive or take trains. The train option seems surprisingly more expensive and would have some hastle factor for parking, traffic, etc. However, not having your own wheels and having to take cabs is added expense and hastle. If we choose the train option we may add on Berlin. What can some of you seasoned travelers tell us? We are ages 70 and 68 but have driven in Europe.
Drive or train Netherlands, Belgium, possibly Berlin
