I'm travelling this summer and I'd appreciate some help from more knowledgeable travellers - - or better yet, locals.
I will have 4 or 5 days in Denmark (arrive and depart CPH) followed by 4 or 5 days in Belgium (arrive and depart BRU). I say 4 or 5 because I have not yet purchased the one way flight to connect my open jaw trip so that is still flexible.
I know that I would like to see quite a bit in Copenhagen and it's surrounding areas, but I'm not sure I want to spend all of my Denmark time there. Is there somewhere that would be worth visiting as a day trip or as a 1 or 2 day side trip?
In Belgium, what should I do with 4 or 5 days? Castles and beer could fill a month for me, but what am I missing? What are my best bets?
Since this is an aviation forum, I'll let you know that I'm travelling AA LAX -> LHR, BA LHR --> CPH, BA BRU --> LHR, AA LHR -- LAX and I'm thinking SN Brussels for the CPH --> BRU leg (less than $80 per person!).
I got all but the CPH --> BRU as an AA FF reward. Purchased my wife's seat.
I generally try to spend more time when I visit foreign countries as my main enjoyment in travelling is connecting with the culture and not so much in visiting major tourist sights. This trip will be a bit short, but after spending 5 weeks in Europe last summer, the resources are a bit thin!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
