Trip Summary
2 nights in Amsterdam

Easygoing, liberal Amsterdam is "different." Its citizens, bubbling along happily in their multiracial melting pot, are not so easily poured into the restrictive molds of trade and industry. More important, you can enjoy Amsterdam, its culture, history, and beauty, without stretching the limits of your credit cards. Few skyscrapers mar the clarity of the sky and the populace mostly walks or bikes from place to place. The historic center recalls Amsterdam's Golden Age as the command post of a vast trading network and colonial empire, when wealthy merchants constructed gabled residences along neatly laid-out canals.


2 nights in The Hague

The Hague is the largest Dutch city on the North Sea, the seat of the government and also the place where Queen Beatrix lives. The city center is pretty, with nice government buildings, stately mansions, good museums (Mauritshuis, Panorama Mesdag) and a nice square. It is culturally diverse, with many foreign pubs, shops and cultural events. The Hague comprises two distinct beach towns. The main beach resort Scheveningen, in the northwestern part of the city, is a popular destination for tourists. Kijkduin, in the southwest, is the other beach resort.


2 nights in Maastricht

Maastricht was the first settlement in the Netherlands dating back from the Celtic period. Nowadays, it is a bustling town with shops which attract customers from Belgium and Germany, drawing numerous tourists and businessmen. Maastricht has a historic heritage, well worth visiting, consisting in: the Helpoort and the city wall, Vrijthof square, with the Vrijthoftheatre (Theater aan het Vrijthof), the Saint Servatius basilica (Sint-Servaasbasiliek) and the Saint Johns church (Sint-Janskerk).


2 nights in Luxembourg City

Luxembourg's diminutive capital is a delicious contrasting mix of the old and the new. Spend some time exploring the old city with its cobbled streets and imposing walls, and feast your eyes on ornate windows or jewel-like medallions. Come back to modern day as you pass contemporary constructions of glass and steel that house the many banking and business establishments in the capital. Take a lovely walk through Useldange where you can't miss the feudal castle surrounded by rolling plain.


2 nights in Bruges

Known as the 'Venice of the North', Bruges seems to have changed little from its 13th-century origins as a cloth-manufacturing town. With the city center closed off to cars, all the architectural and artistic treasures, folklore, chocolate shops, lace boutiques, and ambient restaurants of this unforgettable city can be easily explored on foot, by boat ride along quiet canals, or by horse-drawn carriage among cobblestone streets. The city center also made the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.


2 nights in Brussels

Brussels is sumptuous, historic and luxuriously cozy. What makes Brussels special? For visitors, it's full of delights - Grand Place, mussels with chips, pralines, under crowded museums, intimate hotels, Art Nouveau, Horta, Tintin and unbelievable beers. Modern edifices are only a few steps from the cobbled streets, splendid cafés, and graceful Art Nouveau architecture that speak to the city's eventful past. The city's spirit survives in traditional cafes, bars, bistros, and restaurants. Whether elegantly Art Nouveau or eccentrically festooned with posters, curios, and knickknacks, such centuries-old establishments provide a warm, convivial ambience that is peculiarly Belgian.

Package Map Picture
Belgium

Small as it seems Belgium has been the unlikely backdrop for some of the most important events in European history. Artists like Breughel, Van Dyck and Rubens were all masters in their day and Belgium's art galleries are replete with their fantastic and moving works. Many of Belgium's cities are works of art on their own. The simple beauty of historic centers such as Ghent and Bruges is matched by few other European cities. And capital city Brussels is a masterpiece of Renaissance art and architecture and has a refinement not found in many cities of its size.

Luxembourg

Luxembourg is one of Europe's oldest and smallest independent states. Although famous for its picturesque villages, medieval castles, and natural beauty, Luxembourg is one of the world's most industrialized countries and has the highest standard of living in the EU. The center of Luxembourg is Luxembourg city and there are a number of other beautiful small cities and villages that well worth a visit like Echternach and Vianden. All places can be easily visited in a day from the capital or neighboring Trier.

Netherlands

Visiting the Netherlands should mean more than Amsterdam. The vast flower fields, old windmills and bustling market towns make it an exceedingly pleasant place to explore. The Hague, Delft and Alkmaar are three cities with their own distinctive charms and are less frenetic than the Dutch capital. Also growing in popularity is the town of Maastricht in the far south. Undoubtedly, Amsterdam`s Rijksmuseum, packed with priceless paintings, will appeal to culture vultures. Outside of its beautiful cities, the Wadden Islands of the north are a Mecca for yachting enthusiasts, while the flat landscape makes touring by bike easy.
