Germany, Brussels and Amsterdam late December

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary and wanted to take a European trip. We were able to book tickets using miles flying to Munich, Germany on December 27th and departing Amsterdam January 5th. We will be staying on miles at Hotel Intercontinental or Crown Plaza depending on location. We are in our mid 30s and are active enjoying museums, local food and drinks and art.

We would like to take the train from Munich to Brussels and then another train to Amsterdam. How long should we stay in each city? We are looking forward to the Christmas markets in Munich. Any other must see places in Munich? Any recommendations for what to do Brussels? We would like to be in Amsterdam for New Years Eve night. Any recommendations for New Years Eve? We would love to be on a boat cruise at night if there is such a thing. Should we buy tickets for anything in advance like the Anne Frank house or Heineken experience?

Lastly, any recommendations on trains? Which stations and are any high speed trains?

Thanks so much!!
