Holland in Bloom 2019 Saga River Cruise
Encounter the floral delights of Holland on this cruise of contrasts. Begin in Arnhem by remembering the fallen troops before sailing the scenic Rhine towards Beverwijk where you can join an optional excursion to the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens. Cruise on towards Amsterdam to explore the wealth of museums nestled amid its canal-lined streets.
Travel by Eurostar to Arnhem via Brussels, and embark Filia Rheni II. Enjoy a welcome reception and dinner on board before mooring overnight..
This morning, you can explore Arnhem independently, or you might like to join an optional tour to see famous sights associated with the Battle of Arnhem, a battle fought by British and Polish airborne troops during World War II. An alternative optional excursion visits Appeltern Gardens — a stunning location and a source of information and inspiration for amateur gardeners from around the world. Depart for Wijk bij Duurstede this afternoon, arriving early evening.
Wijk bij Duurstede sits on the banks of the River Rhine and is one of the oldest settlements in the Netherlands. Look out for the 13th-century medieval Castle Duurstede and traditional Dutch windmills adorning the town's laid-back streets. Perhaps join a full-day optional excursion to the wonderful Keukenhof Gardens, described as 'the most beautiful spring garden in the world!' Alternatively, depart for Amsterdam at lunchtime where you moored for the next two nights.
You have a full day in this lively city, the capital of the Netherlands. Although it's compact and easy to explore on foot, it is home to many interesting old and new buildings and world-class museums, including the Rijksmuseum where you can see Rembrandt’s 'Night Watch'. Perhaps take an optional visit to the fishing village of Volendam and the historic city of Edam. You may like to explore the city this afternoon on an optional sightseeing tour with a canal cruise and coach tour showcasing treasures such as the famous Skinny Bridge.
