Springtime in Holland

Enjoy an Elite Door to Door holiday on the Dutch waterways.

With clear skies and milder weather coaxing fresh buds into bloom, Amsterdam is a riot of colour and scent at this time of year.

The historic Dutch and Belgian waterways offer the perfect glimpses of vibrant waterfront cities, historic sites and sumptuous riverscapes adorned in spring finery as you enjoy life on the water at a leisurely pace - in absolute comfort on the splendid MS Europe or MS Monet.

Notorious for its flat, rolling landscapes that has inspired artists for years, Amsterdam is punctuated with tree-lined canals, green parks full of wildflowers and the serried ranks of the 'Bollenstreek' - most notably those of Keukenhof Gardens, where the arrival of spring is announced by the vivid colours of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and blossoming trees.

 

For a limited time every year, Keukenhof Gardens are open toall, offering an impressive and inspiring experience with its eye-catching colourful displays.  From showcasing floral magic, to magnificent art installations dotted around the grounds, enjoy and explore Amsterdam's artistry at its finest, and even create your own version at home with tulip bulbs purchased there.
