While in Brussels: advice about daytrips

Jump to last reply

We will be in Brussels this year in December (during the winter market) for 3 days. We go every year, so we've already spent a lot of time in Brussels, Ghent, and we've been to Bruges, Antwerp, and Mechelen as well as day trips.

We're trying to come up with a good location for a day trip. We've talked about going as far away as Amsterdam, but we are also interested in visiting the Wallonian part of Belgium, and we've considered places like Tournai and Dinant.

We won't have access to a car--we are planning to take public transportation.

We love art and architecture, we like the atmosphere of the cities but we like small towns too. Belgium has a special place in our hearts, so we would like to see more of it (and this hopefully won't be our last trip!), but the idea of a day trip to Amsterdam or Aachen seems pretty tempting--so...

Is there too much to do in Amsterdam to warrant a day trip? What about Aachen? Especially during winter? We would want to be back in Brussels that evening, keeping it as our base.

Also, does it make sense to go all the way to Dinant in the middle of winter?

sorry for such a random series of questions! thanks for any help!
