Need a second city in both Belgium & Holland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have 12 nights in Belgium & Holland in September. We usually like to stay in one place for 3 nights and then move (even a short distance - we just like to experience the flavour and culture of different sizes and styles of cities).

So we will spend 3 nights in Brussels and 3 nights in Amsterdam. I am interested in advice on a 2nd city/town/place in each country to compliment this plan. We generally like at least a mid-sized city so that we do not have to travel far at night in order to find places to eat. We're fine with day trips from wherever we are (but do like to come back and stay put at night).

The itinerary will likely be 3 nights in Amsterdam, followed by 3 nights somewhere in Holland, followed by 3 nights somewhere in Belgium and finishing with 3 nights in Brussels.

This is our first trip to both of these countries for both of us.

I appreciate any of your advice.

Thanks!!!
