Benelux – all countries in one trip or better separately?

Benelux - all countries in one trip or better separately?
Thankful in advance for answers,
And the second - Brussels (plus the towns near) -Flandland (Bruges, Ghent) -Antwerp, and Luxembourg, if the time remains.
I will join Arsen: you need to break the whole Benelux, but not two, and three trips each week.
The first trip - if you fly to Dusseldorf (this is the cheapest), then Cologne, Aachen, Liege, Maastricht, Luxembourg, maybe Namur and Yui.
The second trip is Flanders (Brussels in the same place).
The third train is Holland, preferably with days off for 8-9 days, for there is a lot of interesting.
That's somehow from personal experience. It was necessary to write a review of the trip, but too tired, could not get the hang of it. We went in late April or early May this year.
Of course, you can go and for two weeks, then you need to move very slowly, in each city to stay longer, otherwise there will be just a mess in your head after two weeks of galloping.
Of course, you can go and for two weeks.
I went to Holland for two weeks. They managed to see three provinces - Amsterdam and North Holland (Alkmaar, Zaandam, Zaanse Schans, Volendam-Edam-Marken-Monnickendam), Keukenhof and Haarlem), Utrecht (De Haar, Kroller Muller, Het Loo, Amersfoort), South Holland (Delft, The Hague, Kinderdijk, Rotterdam). We left every day, went from morning till night, visited all the planned events (coronation, museum Friday at the Van Gogh Museum, night voyage "City of Light" in Utrecht, excursion to Binnenhof in The Hague, excursion to the amphibious boat in Rotterdam), tulip yards in Amsterdam, etc.
As they say, neither add nor subtract. They did not run anywhere, with suitcases moved three times, they enjoyed delicious food, beautiful views, posh museums, walks and rest. More and faster, I personally would be uncomfortable. And Belgium with Holland (I, too, at first wanted to combine), there was absolutely no desire to poke into the pile.
Elena, two weeks only in Holland - this is normal. There is a time to translate the spirit. 🙂 I would do so now, but you will not change anything. How did you like the tour of the amphibian in Rotterdam? We were not lucky - we bought tickets, because our flight was canceled because of technical problems. I had to pass the tickets. It was insulting. But nothing, Rotterdam is waiting, we liked him very much! 🙂
If you have not read the reviews of the esteemed OEA , please read. Just do not read everything, but only in those cities where you are going on your first trip. Otherwise, you want it everywhere and immediately, it's very beautiful, he writes. :)))

:))) very much, so the mood raises! you feel like a happy child! This is a real show - drivers - former sailors, one behind the wheel (steering wheel?) :)) the second talks with passengers and leads the tour. This is not even an excursion - it's a show, a real show, with songs, only without dancing! 🙂 He jokes all the time, treats sweets, runs by bus, in general, joins this KVN involuntarily 🙂 And of course, this is an inexpressible sensation - when the bus flops down to the river, water pours windows, yelp, squeak, delight! We were all photographed and greeted - even sailors from warships, the spectacle is unthinkable - a yellow crazy bus is sailing through the window in the water :)) We ourselves then sat in the restaurant at EvroMechta and saw it from the side, such a joke! Very pleased!
about Rotterdam, many will argue.
What are they arguing about? I did not get that. The fact that he is knocked out of a number of traditional Dutch cities? So in Paris there is Defense, and in Amsterdam there are modern quite interesting quarters, just in Rotterdam there is more modern architecture, that is, it absolutely dominates, and it is, in my opinion, perfectly built. I do not like, for example, the building of Brussels, it is sometimes just barbaric, the city is perceived as pieces of artificially molded different and different parts of the neighborhood. and in Rotterdam, everything is extremely harmonious. You just need to imagine where and why you're going 🙂
We will have to return there, especially since we did not get on such an amazing excursion. 😉
I went to Holland for two weeks.
Two are unlikely, but about 9 days at the time)) Your route I really liked! And immediately it became clear - yet yes, it is better to give this country (as well as Belgium) a separate piece of time, not to interfere in one heap all.
Dear Squirrel, if you do two trips, then Holland separately and Belgium + Luxembourg. Luxembourg still visit, at least for a day, there are such views - you rock yourself! Most of all we liked Luxembourg and Rotterdam. But about Rotterdam, many will argue, it is a very peculiar city. Yes, I was advised to miss Luxembourg. How glad I am that I did not do so.
If you have not read the reviews of the esteemed OEA, be sure to read. Just do not read everything, but only in those cities where you are going on your first trip. Otherwise, you want it everywhere and immediately, it's very beautiful, he writes. :)))
Yes, I admit - initially my soul was more to separate two trips with a visit to Holland in one and Blygia in another. Confused numerous reviews of travelers who combine an inspection of these countries (still more often do so than vice versa for some reason). Luxembourg is a must! I already read about it a little and decided - I'll go, it's not even discussed))
yet yes, it is better to give this country (as well as Belgium) a separate piece of time.
exactly. Whatever it was, these are different countries. In addition, Holland, even inside itself, is very, very different, it's more interesting for me to travel slowly.

I have an opinion (based on the read and different forums) that Belgium is more diverse and more interesting than Holland. but thanks to you I begin to understand that this is not quite true))
Belgium is more diverse and more interesting than Holland.
Yes, not at all!
Yes, not at all!
That's experimental and find out)) Thought here and decided that it was even illogical - what's the point of two trips to two countries, if you can visit each separately? Anyway, whatever one may say, two trips will have to be organized, so why not pay attention to each separately.
I confirm that Holland is more diverse than Belgium. There are more interesting and diverse. So - start with Belgium plus Luxembourg. :)))
But Belgium is still happier than Holland. In my opinion. 😉
