I have visited both of these countries. I think that your friend should say in Amsterdam and ride around a canal on a boat to see the old buildings. She could visit Anne Frank's House which is now a sad but interesting museum. I think she would enjoy taking a train to Delft which has very picturesque streets. She might like to visit the house of Corry Ten Boom which is another town. In the countryside some lovely looking buildings can be seen. Your friend could hire a push bike and set off exploring. For one month she could combine the Netherlands with Belgium. I think that your friend should begin her German sightseeing in Trier because it has a part of town that was built by the Romans. She could enjoy traveling along the Romantic Road. Arriving in Bavaria she could see all of King Ludwig's castles. One of these looks like the perfect fairy tale castle and it has a fascinating history. In Munich is a concentration camp called Dacau which is sad but interesting to visit. My favorite place in Germany is Bamberg and it is very pretty indeed. I love to see half timbered houses that have a Tudor appearance.

ive never been to holland but i have been to germany twice - bremen & munich. i loved both places, we specifically went to bremen to visit my mom's dad who lived there. munich had a lot of site seeing, and a very large park with a biergarten in the middle (this was 7 years ago,it may be different now). also she should go see the neuschwanstein castle, very beautiful
