My girlfriends and I are taking a two week tour around Europe. I've been many times, but my friends have never been. We are starting in Amsterdam and then taking the train to Bruges. I'd like to see some towns I have never been to, while showing them some great cities.
My question is: On the way to Bruges, should we spend the day in Ghent or Maastricht? I've heard great things about both, but I can't tell which one would be a better day trip between AMS & Bruges. Suggestions??
