I am planning a trip for June 11-27 and would like some feedback. Any ideas on timeframe at locations, possible other better locations and any other general ideas would be of great help. One big question is are we trying to do too much and missing out by not spending enough time in certain places?
Because we plan on seeing some "out of the way" places, we will be renting a car once we leave Brussels and returning it before our leg to Antwerp.
Obviously because of some of the areas we will be visiting we will be visiting battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials. Other sites will be exploring cities, culture, museums and looking for great food and beverages.
Start in Brussels 11-13
14th-leave Brussels with stops in Waterloo and Durbuy. Stay in Luxembourg City
15-16 Use Luxembourg City as base to visit Battle of the Bulge sites and take a half day in the Mullerthal region.
17th Drive to Dinant to kayak the river Lesse and stay in Namur.
18th Leave Namur for Ypres
18-19 Use Ypres as a base to visit WWI sites as well as a trip to Ostend and Dunkirk.
20-21 After returning car in Brussels, take train to Ghent. Stay in Ghent with a visit to Bruges the next day (should we spend the night in each city or use one or the other for these two days)
22th Train to Antwerp
23-26 Train to Amsterdam
27 Return by train to Brussels for the evening and flight home the next day.
Thanks in advance for any and all help,
