Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Brussels

Hello, I am a 26 year old AuPair in France. I have a 2 week holiday in April and am looking at going to Amsterdam to see the tulip fields and since I'm over that way go to Copenhagen as well. Looking at transportation prices it seems best to travel Paris-Brussels-Amsterdam-Copenhagen-Paris. I am looking for any advice on such a trip!

Looking for the cheapest options of everything... Room, food, activities!

Trying to plan time needed for each cities and if I can do it all with about 300€ (I know it's not a lot but I can go for a shorter time if doable)

Thanks for the help!

I would fly both to and from Copenhagen; see www.skyscanner.com. From Paris to either Belgium or Amsterdam, book advance-discount tickets for the Thalys train. Between Belgium and the Netherlands, other train types are generally cheaper but may have an additional connection. You can stay in Bruges or Ghent (instead of Brussels) for smaller-town atmosphere, and still daytrip between all three.

I'd also suggest Rick's guidebooks to these areas - paper copies if you're near a major Paris bookstore that stocks guides in English, or a Kindle or Nook e-book version. Michelin Green Guides are another trusted resource.
