Please Help with Destination City In Belgium

Jump to last reply

I really need advice and ASAP!

I leave in a week for Amsterdam. I arrive the morning of 4/2. A friend and I (she lives in Amsterdam) then depart for Venice from 4/4 and come back the morning of 4/7. I really want to travel to Belgium for a Day trip. I am leaning towards Brugge. Yes I know it's 3 hours each way via train and I am ok with that. I have been know to actually drive 3 hours to visit my brother for the day and turn around and drive back home. It is a long day.

My question is this...Is this really the best city for me to go to?

I love old historical architecture, I'm not really into art museums. I want charm and history. I found train service to Brugge and one of the stops I would need to change is Ghent. I would love to see a Castle. I have read that the Gravensteen Castle is there. Is it even feasible to take the train and when we stop in Ghent to visit the Castle, come back and continue onto Brugge? Or is this too much?

Please help, I really need to book my train tickets!
