The Netherlands in February?

Jump to last reply

My partner is traveling to Eindhoven in early February for work. I am trying to decide if I want to join him along with our 6 year old son. My son is well traveled, enjoys museums and sightseeing, and is accustomed to walking around cities and traveling by train (we live in Boston and walk and take the T almost every day). But are we going to have a good time in February? We would be there for 7 or 8 nights, and it looks like we can somewhat easily take the train to Amsterdam (~1.5 hours each way). Are there other towns in the area that would make for good day trips by train? Maybe Utrecht or Maastricht? Would it be crazy to take the train to Paris for a couple of nights?

I know it isn't an ideal time of year, but is it worth making the trip? We won't have to pay for lodging in Eindhoven, only our airfare, train fare, lodging for any overnight trips, and meals, so that is why I'm considering it.

Thanks for your thoughts!
