Timelimited stop in Brussels, Bruges - advice?

Jump to last reply

Hi, and I know your first bit of advice would be to devote much more time to Belgium, but we're stuck between obligations in Amsterdam and Paris, so . . .

If we can leave Amsterdam at suppertime/dinnertime on Wed., we can get to Brussels that evening. We can only stay a day and a half, i.e. all day Thurs. to lunchtime Friday in Belgium - which is a crime, I know. But that's 2 nights and a day and a half so:

1. Stay in Brussels and try to fit Bruges in (an hour away, right), or stay in Bruges and take a quick look at Brussels on the way to and from the trainstations? Prefer not one night each, but I suppose that's another option.

2. For that matter, the trains we're using apparently arrive and depart at the Midi station, not the Centraal. Where are they each relative to each other? Hotel nearby that Midi station?

3. Whether Bruges or Brussels, modest (120-150 Euro), hotel recommendation?

4. Or just punt and add the time in Paris, where we'll also have a tight 2 or 3 days?

I understand it's a matter of taste and travel style, but grateful for all votes in any direction.

Merci!
