I've posted this in the general Netherlands forum but wasn't sure if it was better in here.
We're in the process of planning a long weekend away in november (thursday night to sunday). There will be a group of us and we benefit from really convenient flights to amsterdam.
We've all been to amsterdam before and didn't really want to go back there. Ideally we are looking for somewhere with a buzzing nightlife and perhaps a couple of things to do during the day. We wouldn't mind seeing a couple of places if its cheap and easy to go between them.
We've been to Antwerp before and really enjoyed it there, I had looked at perhaps Rotterdam and Antwerp but the trains between the two (on nshispeed) looked like they were around 40 Euros which is a bit more than we would like to pay especially as we would then need to get back across the border to Amsterdam airport on the Sunday. Obviously trains for November are not available but this price was based upon 2 months ahead.
We've also been to utrecht, which we liked, but to be honest we would perhaps like somewhere a bit more lively later into the night.
I hope this makes sense. Thanks for any advice.
