During your cruise choose to visit the iconic Keukenhof Flower Gardens. This beautiful park features more tulips in flower than anywhere else in the world. Over seven million bulbs are planted here annually, with visitors from around the globe coming to explore the nine-and-a-half-mile network of footpaths, including the largest sculpture park in the Netherlands. This expansive park, with its art, royal flair, and creative diversity, attracts over a million visitors each year. Countless tulips, narcissi and hyacinths form colorful carpets of blooms. Round, oval, triangular and rectangular borders line the park’s driveways, making a cheerful ensemble of colors, shapes and scents. Alternating exhibitions, known as parades, bloom in several pavilions. Numerous sculptures can be found tucked between the many flowerbeds, as harmony between art and nature is a major staple of this park. A visit to the Keukenhof Flower Gardens really is a once in a lifetime experience for any horticulturist!
Another exciting opportunity during your “Tulip Serenade” is an excursion to the Floriade Expo 2022, the only recurring horticultural Expo in Europe, which takes place only once every ten years. Allow Floriade to transport you to a fantastic place overhauled with the scents and colors of endless flowers, plants, vegetables, and fruit. During the Floriade Expo the Dutch horticultural sector, in conjunction with national and international participants, will exhibit revolutionary green solutions that will make our cities more fun, livable, and sustainable for future generations. This unique event will be a celebration of green and sustainable technology that you’ll be able to experience for yourself firsthand. You can also choose to pair this rare and exciting excursion with our popular “Classical Rhine” itinerary from Amsterdam to Basel or reverse.
