    So I just booked our next year trip to EU where we will be spending 4 days in London & 4 days in Amsterdam. In between we have 4 days which the wifey wants to do Paris for 2 days again. Thus right now our plan is the following:

    • SEA-LHR (BA First)
    • London - Paris (Eurostar)
    • AMS-LHR-SAN (BA Business)

    That leaves 2 days where we were discussing possibly doing LIlle France (since its on the way via Eurostar) or possibly Cologne since its on the way via Thayls.

    Any opinions on Lille France or Cologne?

    I agree that Lille is a nice city ( third favorite in France) however I disagree that there is more to do than in Cologne but then that all depends on the OPs interests:).

    Also depends on when. Cologne (Köln) and Düsseldorf have some great festivals during the year, and drinking Kölsch in Köln, or Alt in DUS, is a great way to experience something new and wonderful.

    Sounds like during Lent, so you'd have missed Carnival/Fasching.

    Some German cities have a "strong beer time" in late March, but I'm not sure about Cologne or Düsseldorf
