Netherlands Cruise Holidays
Netherlands Cruise Holiday Highlights
Only have time for a short break? No need to feel short-changed when you have a country as delightful as the Netherlands practically on your doorstep. It has everything you could want for a city stopover: shopping, gorgeous architecture, beautiful gardens and flower markets, a fabulous café culture – and, of course, canals. And did we mention the windmills, beer and cheese, and a wealth of truly wondrous art? Try to squeeze in a visit to at least one of the following: the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum (with works by Picasso, Cézanne, Matisse and Monet) or the Rijksmuseum (masterpieces by Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Vermeer).
Explore the Netherlands on a cruise holiday
Amsterdam's Museum Quarter is well worth a visit. Waves of masterpieces can be found in one walkable stretch. From Rembrandt to Van Gogh, to Banksy and Matisse, there's plenty to see between the Rijksmusem, Moco, Stedelijk and Van Gogh museums.
The Aalsmeer Flower Auction is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to observe the inner workings of the world's largest flower trading centre. You'll have a bird's-eye view over trading, where 19 million flowers are bought and sold daily.
Why not soak up the sights on a canal boat ride? Take a seat on a glass-topped boat and enjoy a unique glide through Amsterdam's UNESCO listed waterways. You'll sail through the ages, passing monuments like the Maritime Museum, Town Hall and the house in which Anne Frank wrote her famous diary.
