We are a couple who will be staying in Maastricht for 2 weeks in May 2014. We will be travelling with Eurail, and would like to make the most of the location. Germany, the rest of the Netherlands, Belgium and hopefully France? Will this be possible? I am aware of the fact that you need to pay a surcharge on the French trains.
Has anybody done this before, and can you suggest interesting places to go to?
We are obviously thinking of Cologne, Antwerp, Ghent, Amsterdam, and would love to go to Keukenhof. Is this a good time of the year for a visit to the gardens? Any other villages, towns or places we should consider?
I would appreciate any help.....we are particularly fond of the old towns.
