Help with Belgium-Netherlands Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

We are planning a summer trip to Belgium-Holland (about 10 people incl. kids). Since we have kids with us and because we like to stay at least 2 nites in most places - this is is what we have come up with :

Belgium-Holland :

Day 1 : Arrive Amsterdam (Base in Netherlands) Explore Amsterdam
Day 2 - Explore Amsterdam
Day 3 : Amsterdam (Suggested day trips : Edam/Alkmaar (cheese markets), harlem/leiden,zanse schans)
Day 4 Amsterdam (Suggested day trips : Edam/Alkmaar (cheese markets), harlem/leiden,zanse schans)
Day 5 - Amsterdam with day trip to The Hague (1 hour train ride from amsterdam)
Day 6 - Fly Amsterdam to Brussels (Base in Belgium) - Explore Brussels
Day 7 - Explore Brussels
Day 8 - Day trip to Antwerp (1.5 hours by train from brussels)
Day 9 - Day trip to Ghent (30 minutes by train from Brussels)
Day 10 - Day trip to Bruges (1 hour by train from Brussels)
Day 11 - Fly out of Brussels

Questions :

1. Will the above work or should we spend more / less time in certain places
2. Is there a train between Amsterdam and Brussels that we should take instead of flying?
3. Should we add places which are not on here or remove places?

In all we can spend about 14 days including travel time - so the current itinerary does leave us with a couple of days in hand
