Hi there,

I'll be going on a 2 week work trip to Amsterdam and visiting Belgium on the weekend. It's my first time in Europe so I would love to know some spots to shoot at or just general tips for the trip.

Thanks in advance!

Really depends on your interest. If you want to soak up culture around amsterdam i would not just stay in amsterdam. There is so much to see aside the mass touristy places.

here are a few tips for you close to amsterdam:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monnickendam
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Rijp
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaanse_Schans
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naarden
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delft (home of the world famous delft blue pottery and has a nice historic centre)

Tips within 62mi / 100km (max 1.5 hr commute):
https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Utrecht (this city also has canals, which are less touristy than in amsterdam and in some places even nicer than those in amsterdam).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gouda,_South_Holland (this city is the home of dutch cheese and has a lovely historic city centre)
If you like architecture (We have some famous architects in The Netherlands) i would visit Rotterdam https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotterdam
Lots to see there e.g. the new central train station, the 'markthal' the famous cube houses and many many more.

Then if you love the sea and sand dunes hit the coast, i could recommend 'bloemendaal aan zee': http://www.iamsterdam.com/en/visiting/areas/city-escapes/amsterdam-beach/bloemendaal

For belgium, Gent and Brugge are nice cities to visit.
