Overnight in Belgium with Teens -

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling with my older teens from Munch to Brussels to Amsterdam. We arrive in Brussels (from Munich) at 8:30 am on Sunday, July 3rd and are planning to arrive in Amsterdam the evening of Monday, July 4th. I realize this is not ideal in terms of such a short time and visiting on a Sunday/Monday, but this is our option.

I am looking for recommendations on how to spend this short time. I am not really interested in visiting Brussels on this trip. The areas our family seems most interested in visiting are:

Ghent
Flanders Field Museum
Antwerp (fashion scene for the girls, Red Star Line Museum)
Mechlen

Although I am sure we would love Bruges, I would prefer it on a different trip with a bit more time.

Any recommendations on which of these places might appeal most to teens (girl/boy 17/19). I am assuming we cannot hit all the options? Any insight would be appreciated.

Thank you
