Avalon Waterways - Tulip Time Highlights

Brussels to Amsterdam

State-of-the-art, luxurious river cruise visiting Netherlands & Belgium

Make your visions of tulip season in Holland and Belgium come into view! Cruise from Brussels to Amsterdam for quintessential scenes of windmills, waterways, and rows of blooming colour.

Embark in Brussels and sail to Ghent—“The Diamond of Flanders.” Visit St. Bavo’s Cathedral with its stunning Flemish artwork. Sail to Bossuit for moving battlefield remembrances, including In Flanders Fields Museum and the Last Post Ceremony.

On to Holland for a visit the former Dutch East India Company trading port. You’ll tour the Delta Works in Veere—a marvel of flood-protection. In Kinderdijk, see 19 windmills built in 1740 for water management, and in Rotterdam the Erasmus Bridge. You’ll see why windmills are a symbol of Holland!

Take in the tulips and other flowering bulbs in the flower farm regions of Zaandam and Haarlem, and conclude your river cruise through Belgium and Holland with a visit to Amsterdam. Take a guided canal cruise past bridges and homes of a golden age.
