Belgium & Holland in Spring - Northbound

2015 Prices From $3,990 for 10 Days - Tauck Cruising

Tauck treats you to a ringside seat for nature's spectacular annual springtime show on a memorable 10-day trip including an 8-night cruise through the inland waterways of Holland and Belgium aboard a premium Tauck riverboat. Everywhere, a spot of local color... throughout your cruise in Belgium and the Netherlands... from tulips, daffodils and hyacinths abloom in flower boxes or in grand gardens... in historic windmills and fishing villages preserving a vanished way of life... at a chef-topped lunch in a terraced countryside castle... in gabled houses dressed in maritime lore along Amsterdam’s tree-lined canals... in Flemish paintings, chocolate and bier... Check out Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands' bulb country. Take a scenic boat cruise through Amsterdam's canals and experience the past at the Zuiderzee Museum. Visit a windmill museum and observe cheese-making in Holland's Alkmaar region. Tour renowned art museums and World War II sites, and visit Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Maastricht, Antwerp, Middelburg, Brussels and more on one of our most popular European river cruises – and enjoy Tauck Exclusives such as an interactive culinary experience at the fabulous Château Neercanne.
