Hi there,

All sound very nice - with The Hague and Rotterdam being least scenic/old and being interesting for different reasons.

Not all towns are a full day. So could e.g. combine Leiden and The Hague or Delft in one day and Rotterdam and Gouda same. Both of these pairs are on one railway line (2nd one on Amsterdam-Woerden-Gouda-Rotterdam local train route) so you're allowed to make a stopover for free).

Hope this helps a bit,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Of the day trips we've done, I liked Delft the best. Rotterdam seemed like a big city and was my least favorite. We enjoyed Utrecht. Great shopping and the canal ride was fun. Haven't been to Leiden or the hague.

leiden is interesting..birthplace of rembrandt..very old university.historic center.close to amsterdam. the hague ( den hagg ) is interesting because you always hear about it with the world court and all. they have this museum there that has this panoramic mural painted by a famous dutch guy that was impressive. maybe one of our dutch friends would know the name of the place?
