Hi.. I will be travelling to Dusseldorf in February 2014 last week to attend a conference. I would have 8 days in my hand from 21st Feb - 1st March (Flying out) to explore as many places as possible. I have keen interest in visiting Belgium, Paris and a two day trip to nearby places in Dusseldorf. Does this itinerary sounds good Dusseldorf - Cologne - Any other place in Germany - Amsterdam - Brussels - Paris - Nearby trip for a day and then fly out of Paris.?? I desperately need suggestions and also an idea on Cost factor. Which are the other areas where i can stop over and would IBIS hotel be a good choice for this trip?
