Your post isn't very clear but it seems you are visiting Amsterdam (3 nights) and Bruges (2 nights) but nowhere else in Belgium? That's absolutely fair enough on such a short trip. Both are very interesting and very enjoyable cities, both with a great deal of history. You could of course easily spend much longer in Amsterdam but 2 days will allow you to at least see the highlights.

Travelling from Amsterdam to  Brugge (Bruges) by train is very straightforward.  Look at the official Dutch railway website in English for international train times, details and fares:

Journey time is from just over 3 hours, with at least one change of train. Fares are cheaper if you buy your ticket online well in advance. 

I'm not sure what other advice you need about Brugge? I suggest you buy your April train tickets online now (through the official site above) for cheaper fares...and do book both your Amsterdam and Brugge accommodation as soon as possible. Two weeks of April this year are taken up with school holidays for many parts of Europe and that includes Easter, a major public holiday weekend. Easter Sunday is 16th April this year.

I suggest you look for and book your accommodation on It's a long-established and reliable site which has extensive listings in Amsterdam and Brugge, as well as in many, many other cities in Europe and elsewhere. Its mapping is excellent and reviews can only be posted by people who have booked through the site and completed their stay. 

If you want to visit the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam or the Van Gogh Museum I  do strongly suggest you buy your tickets online in advance to save wasting a lot of time queueing. Official sites for buying online tickets:

Hope that helps a bit! :-)
