Hello! I'm looking at a possible day trip to Brussels and Ghent from Amsterdam. (My grandfather emigrated to the US from Ghent, so I'd like to visit while I'm in the area!) I'm still planning my trip, but I'm thinking I'll be in Amsterdam for 3 nights in mid-April. Are there trains that link directly from Amsterdam to Brussels or Ghent? This is part of a larger trip with the UK included, so I may also consider flying or taking the Eurostar from London to Brussels before ending up in Amsterdam.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
