whats there?if have a choice to go for a day trip either to amsterdam or there with 2 kids,which is a better option?what is there to do there?

In Bruges (can be combined with Ghent in a day):

Very nice old town.

Boat ride within town (Bruges is nicknamed Venice from the North)

All within a walk-able area.

no kosher food

Very impressive very old castle in +/- original condition, the year 800-1500 when most got built (Ghent)



Amsterdam:

Nice places to visit

Nice museums (not so interesting for smaller kids)

Kosher restaurants

I was there a few months ago. I went on a hop on/hop off bus around Brussels (slept through most of it) and then headed to Antwerp which I found much more exciting.

Might be. What airline is it? Call Orbitz and see what they say.
