Trip planned thus far:
Arrive mid morning on Wedn. April 24 - check into Grand hotel Amrath (I hope a good choice and location).
Thursday - Keukenhof
Friday - Anne Frank House
Sat. - Rij. Museum
Sunday check out and rent a car to drive to Zaanse Schan for windmills, Haarlem, Delft and Utretch. Spend the night in either Delft or Utrecht.
For this portion of the trip: 1. Enough time in amsterdam to catch the flavor of the Dutch??
2.Where to rent a car?
3.Is it feasible to rent car in Amsterdam and then leave it in Utrecht instead of driving back to Amsterdam to catch the train to Bruges?
Once in Bruges I want to spend two nights and explore Ghent also?
Or drive to Ghent and train back to Bruges? Either way will work for us. We just want to have a place to Sleep and leave luggage?
Is this a good plan or too much? We will take the train from Bruge or Ghent to Paris. Fly home from Paris.
