Need input on trip to Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are taking a trip in July or August of this year. Will be 9-10 days. We're thinking right now about going to the Netherlands, Belgium, and maybe Luxembourg. Right now leaning towards getting a car if necessary to hit some of the smaller locations but train is also a possibility if car is not needed.

We already have several travel books that we're looking through but fellow traveler feedback is always helpful in narrowing the list.

In the Netherlands we're definitely planning on going to Amsterdam and Haarlem. Is Rotterdam worth trip? Any others?

In Belgium, Brugge and Ghent are planned stops. We've been to Brussels before. Any other must sees? Antwerp? We are big fans of chateaus and castles, so any advice in that regard is particularly helpful.

And finally, we've considered adding a stop in Luxembourg. I've read mixed reviews of Luxembourg City. What's the consensus here about whether its also worth going to?

Generally for all stops we enjoy history, culture, castles/chateaus, churches, good cuisine, and shopping. We will do some museums but don't plan on trying to hit every one.

Any feedback appreciated!
