You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you 'really' need to know when traveling in Amsterdam, Bruges, and Brussels. The self-guided tours in this book will lead you on bike rides over cobblestone streets and on cruises through charming canals. Stop to smell the tulips as you hike past whirring windmills. Get inspired by the work of the Dutch Masters and visit the ultramodern European Parliament. When it's time for a break, sample fine chocolates or sip local beerseach served in its own distinctive glass. Rick's candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. You'll learn how to get around the Low Countries by train, bus, or car, and discover which sights are worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.
