More time in Belgium or Germany?

Jump to last reply

Hi! Traveling across Europe for the first time here and we've hit a snag in our plans. We leave in 2 weeks and can't make a decision!
We have gotten our airbnbs booked for most of the trip but there are 3 days in the middle we don't have a desitination. Our original plan was Berlin but my traveling partners don't want to take an 7 hour train from Amsterdam.
itinerary as of now
Dec. 6-8 Paris
9-10 Brussels
11-13 Amsterdam
14-16 ????
17-19 Paris

We'd like to keep travel time under 3 hours. So I've been looking and I've narrowed it down to Ghent or Antwerp, Belgium or Dusseldorf Germany. Should we just extend our time in the Netherlands? More time in Paris? What do you think? Or is there somewhere I haven't thought of that is worth considering. Looking for more artsy, cool areas with kindof an underground scene/night life. We love museums/art/markets/second hand stores.
