Hello! My husband and I will be traveling to the Netherlands and Belgium in late June for 12 nights total in late June. I am unfamiliar with the area and would love suggestions for our itinerary.
We plan to fly into Amsterdam and depart from Brussels. We'll be attending a rock festival nearby Leuven the last night of our trip. We have an airbnb in Leuven for our last two nights. Everything prior to that is up in the air.
Do I just follow the itinerary from the RS Holland and Belgium tour? I figure we would spend at least the first three nights in Amsterdam. I'd love to spend time in Bruge as well. Are places like Rotterdam and the Hague best done as day trips? Are Antwerp or Ghent worth spending a few nights? Should we get crazy and pop over to Cologne?
