Help Western Germany/Belgium ideas

Jump to last reply

We've just booked a flight arriving in Amsterdam at the end of April 2013, leaving from Brussels two weeks later, chosen largely because of price/convenience. We were in Amsterdam/the Hague and Rotterdam earlier this year so will probably head straight for Germany.

But my head is spinning with all the possibilities of where to go.

We are middle aged, love fine art museums, architecture, smaller museums (we loved the Sonneveld House in Rotterdam for example.) We're not big night-life people. We will be travelling by train.

Originally I planned Dusseldorf, Cologne and Frankfurt before heading into Belgium to go to Ghent and Antwerp (we've been to Brussels a few times—we like it, particularly the Art Nouveau).

But a lot of people seem to dislike Dusseldorf and Cologne so now I'm wondering about Stuttgart, Hannover, Hamburg etc. etc. etc. I'm also wondering about smaller/quaint towns.

We've been to Berlin (loved it) and Munich (loved it) but so far that's it in Germany.

Any opinions/advice would be appreciated!
