GRAND TULIP CRUISE OF HOLLAND & BELGIUM (WWI HISTORY CRUISE THEME)

Tour: WHHX  AMSTERDAM  AMSTERDAM
Begin your tulip season cruise in Amsterdam. Cruise to Arnhem and tour its WWII Airborne Museum commemorating the brave battle of 1944. Join your ship in Nijmegen and visit the lovely forest setting of ‘s-Hertogenbosch to sample decadent Dutch chocolate desserts. Perhaps visit a fruit and flower farm to visit with the miller there to hear the history of a 15th-century windmill. A carriage ride takes you through the nearby nature reserve to watch for herons, storks, birds of prey, and wild horses. If you prefer, take a guided bike ride along the Rhine River banks of Arnhem. In Maastricht, choose a sightseeing tour of the old cobblestoned university town, or visit a working mill to make your own Limburg pie. On to Belgium for a sightseeing tour of medieval Namur and free time to browse its ancient architecture, charming cafes, and bookshops. In Liège, see the ancient quarters of the “Fiery City” as well as its romantic streets, steps, and tiny alleyways. Next, you’ll explore the city of Antwerp—birthplace of the master painter Peter Paul Rubens. Stroll its cobbled lanes amid 16th-century guildhall houses and the cathedral’s stunning altarpiece paintings by the famous artist. In Brussels, you’ll find landmark buildings and a collection of cafes and shops on your guided tour. Visit “The Diamond of Flanders”, Ghent, for stunning Flemish artwork in St. Bavo’s Cathedral. Explore more of the Flanders area with tours in Bossuit—the In Flanders Fields Museum and moving battlefield memorials and memorabilia. In Middelburg, explore its grand history in the Dutch East India Company. Tour the Veere Delta Works to see the world’s largest flood-protection system. Continue your cruise through Kinderdijk—where windmills built in 1740 for water management helped the iconic structures become a symbol of Holland. See the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, and the quintessential Dutch towns of Zaandam and Haarlem with their signature flower farms, windmills, waterways, and North Sea trading. Your cruise through Holland and Belgium returns to Amsterdam for a guided canal cruise through the iconic city.
