IMHO those places are really too far from Brussels for day trips (about 2 hours each way - so more than 4 hours in transit for a day) - you would spend too long in transit. And not sure why you would want to go to Frankfurt - not a bad place but not a hotbed of tourism.

I would do day trips to Bruges and Ghent (only about 30 minutes by train) - and possibly other places in Belgium (we like Liege and exploring the area near the German border and seeing Aachen - Charlemagne's capital).

Paris and Amsterdam are both more than worth exploring but there is so much to see and do that I would reco at least one night and possibly two nights in each.

Download the free Fodor's city app. It has detailed information on what to see and do, where to stay, etc. in several European cities near you: Amsterdam, Paris, and London.

Also stop by the Tourist Information office in Brussels. They will have lots of info on what to do in their city and nearby. I bet someone in Brussels leads a private tour of nearby WW1 or WW2 sites.

Amsterdam Brugge and Paris are about the best 3 spots to hit on a day trip.

Roan, I agree with Aramis, but I would add a day trip to Ghent http://ukka.co/Gent--Flanders--VLG--Belgium--BE.html

Aramis, did you mean "on a 10 day trip"? I hope you didn't mean Paris or Amsterdam as a day trip from Brussels...
Brugge and Ghent are more reasonable day trips from Brussels...
