I'll be going to the Netherlands July. My entire trip will be two weeks. I'll be arriving in Amsterdam where I'll stay for 2 nights (mainly to go to Anne Frank House, and maybe a canal cruise). I have a reservation at the Weichman Hotel. it gets good reviews -- I hope it's a decent place.
Then I'll spend a few days in Zevenbergen for a family reunion. We plan to take a day trip to Brugge and/or Ghent from Zevenbergen. I will spend 2 or 3 more days in the Netherlands....maybe Middleburg.... Leiden?
I will have about 4 days left so I'm thinking about either Germany, France or Switzerland for a few days. I'm willing fly if trains aren't convenient or if a train trip would be too long. I'm wondering where would be the best town to be near mountains (and maybe easy hiking, nature) within that timeframe. Stasbourg, France was recommended as a possibility as was Basel Switzerland. Suggestions please! I have a return flight from AMS
Also, I would like to find a few small pieces of Royal Delft pottery. Any recommendations for a good place? Would I find that in Amsterdam or is there a better town/place to find it?
