Just thinking about this trip

Jump to last reply

We have been traveling independently for over 40 years but some reason have never been to Amsterdam. The latest whimsy is to visit Amsterdam, Delft, Bruges, and Copenhagen. It would be a two week trip. We are great admirers of the Masters, inveterate museum goers, and Bruges became more interesting after the film that highlighted excessive cursing and violence.

We like quirky but moderately priced accomodations, but due to our age, stairs are no longer fun, especially when we must tote our own bags. We can and do walk straight ahead for extended periods of time.

We eat almost everything and adapt quite readily.

It seems that Delft is a mere one hour train ride from Amsterdam, so we would not move hotels. Bruges is over 2 hours by high speed train but seems like it is worth 2 days.

My wife would like to take a hike by the ocean and also see one of the vaunted dikes. The air fare to Copenhagen from AMS is a mere pittance. On first blush, it seems the best itinerary would be fly in Amsterdam, stay one night, then take the train to Bruges for 2 days, then back to Amsterdam for 5 or 6 days then fly to Copenhagen for additional 4 or 5 days.

What are the follies of our ways?
What area of Amsterdam would be fun but convenient?
What would be a good hike/walk by the ocean?
What questions am I not asking?

Thank you in advance for your repsnses.
