Gabled homes and Golden Age canals are the backdrop for “glorious” on your Avalon cruise through the Netherlands. Beyond the bike-filled, cobblestone streets of Amsterdam, you’ll find gorgeous Dutch countryside and quaint villages steeped in tradition. Glide across the harbour of Rotterdam, marvel at the impressive Delta Works in Veere, or pedal through the lush landscapes of Nijmegen. Plus, travel during peak tulip season and experience quintessential scenes of windmills, waterways, and seemingly endless rows of blooming colour.
See the best of Holland’s seasonal blooms at Keukenhof Gardens, also known as the Garden of Europe – offering 70 acres of picturesque parkland with lakes, sculpture gardens and greenhouses.
From taking time to visit the van Gogh Museum to trying your own hand at painting, there’s no better place to soak up the legacy that the Dutch have had on art and culture than in the country’s colourful capital, Amsterdam.
Dive into a world of Dutch windmills, water and willpower at World Heritage-listed Kinderdijk. Here you’ll find a staggering 19 authentic windmills, all kept in working order, thanks to the keepers who live and work there.
