I love this question.  Here's what you do: First of all your ultimate destination is less important than the routing.  You want to take one of the trains that follow the Rhine valley.  You'll have river, cliffs and castle views.  To get this routing you have to pick a routing that goes through Cologne and Koblenz.  Try finding an early train out of Amsterdam to Dusseldorf; then a train from Dusseldorf toward Stuttgart.  You can do your turnaround at Suttgart or Heidelberg, and take a more direct route back to Amsterdam.

Hey Elizabeth 
i think the best for you would be to stay in the netherlands as they offer a very good train system and many cities can be explored from Amsterdam RotterdamThe HagueDen HelderEindhoven and Maastricht
The train should not take more than 1 hour and half for these destinations and you'll have plenty of time to visit them HamburgCologne and Berlin are accessible by train from Amsterdam but it's too heavy trip for only one day

I'd go with Cologne or Hamburg.  Both towns have plenty to offer - loads of historical sites, good restaurants, good museums and great nightlife.

Hi Elizabeth,

You have a number of possibilities. 

Bremen is one possibility.  It's Germany's 10th largest city, but you wouldn't know it.  It has a very relaxed feel to it, and plenty of green space.  This may be because Bremen has elected Green Party candidates since 1979.  Bremen's markt is a Unesco world heritage sight. 

Munster is full of charm.

Bonn is worth a visit.  It's the birthplace of Beethoven, and has an excellent museum devoted to him.  There are several other fine museums, too.  Also, this was the cold war capitol of West Germany.  Twenty five years after reunification, they're doing fine on their own.

Cologne, however, would probably be my first choice.  Cologne is history come to life.  It's gothic cathedral is one of the finest anywhere.  The museum scene runs the gamut from art to Roman history.  The people are very progressive minded, and love their sports and their chocolate.  It's a large city, but it doesn't feel like one.

There is another possibility.  Just get on a train and head out.  When you look out the window and see a town that intrigues you, get off the train, walk around.  If you like it, stay the night.  If not, get on the next train and try again.  I know this might sound a little flighty to some, but I've done this many times.  It hasn't always worked out, but most times it does.  Either way, you'll have a story to tell.

Happy travels!
