I'm trying to decide how to allocate 10 days between Brugge and Amsterdam, and I'd welcome comments from folks who have been there. I'll be traveling by train from London to Brugge (with a break in the day to visit the main art museum in Brussels). I should also say that I have a high tolerance for interesting small towns (eg, I've happily spent a week in Asissi and 10 days in Toledo, and could have stayed longer without getting bored), and in a similar manner, I can easily spend a day or more in a good art museum.
Here's what I'm thinking:
--Brugge: 4 full days (with a day trip to Ghent on one of those days, mostly to spend time with the Ghent altarpiece)
--1 day for transit from Brugge to Amsterdam, with a stop in Haarlem to visit the Corrie ten Boom house
--Amsterdam: 5 full days (with a day trip to one of the outdoor social history museums; a day at the Van Gogh museum; a day at the Rijksmuseum)
Would you allocate the time differently?
Also, I didn't see a lot in Haarlem that looked interesting other than the ten Boom house. Are there other places in Haarlem you've enjoyed visiting?
