(Dinner)

Day 2: Amsterdam
The Netherlands’ largest city, Amsterdam has been an international port and financial center for 400 years, endowing it with a lively cosmopolitan feel to match its historic architecture. The famous Keukenhof Gardens is a 70-acre park planted with millions of tulips and other flowers—an extraordinary sight in the spring. Spend half a day here or enjoy a “Morning with the Masters” at the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum before it opens to the public for the day, followed by a breathtaking Amsterdam canal cruise.
(Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Welcome Dinner)

Day 3: Schoonhoven (Kinderdijk), Heusden
Bike around the town of Schoonhoven, best known for its silversmiths, abundant clock makers and quaint shop-lined avenues. Or venture forth to Kinderdijk to see its 19 well-preserved, UNESCO-designated windmills that were originally erected in the 1700s. Learn about the historical significance of these engineering marvels in the Netherlands’ long quest to hold back the sea. If you wish, you’ll have an opportunity to venture inside one of these iconic structures and marvel at Holland’s largest concentration of old windmills.

Day 4: Heusden, Cuijk
Follow in Van Gogh’s footsteps today as you stroll through Nuenen, where the artist once lived and painted “The Potato Eaters.” After lunch in an old water mill, which was even painted by Van Gogh, choose to walk or cycle through Heusden, where you can observe a working mill, learn to make bread at a local bakery, explore the remnants of a 13th-century fortress, and marvel at the memorial in front of town hall dedicated to the Heusden Town Hall Massacre.
(Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 5: Maastricht
Your next stop in the Netherlands— Maastricht—is a city with more than 1,670 national heritage sites, some of which can be seen on a walking tour of the town. And not only that, but it’s known as one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Holland and is loved for its convivial lifestyle and historic center, which has long played a strategic role in European politics. Or you can choose to make a pilgrimage to the 65-acre Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial, the final resting place of 8,301 U.S. soldiers who perished during the Second World War. The cemetery is the only American military center in the Netherlands and sits near the famous Cologne-Boulogne highway that was constructed by the Romans for Caesar to use for his conquests.
(Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 6: Antwerp
It may be the diamond capital of the world, but Antwerp is also known for many other sought-after cultural gems, including Golden Age art, Belgian beer, waffles, pralines, fries, chocolate and more. Your walking discovery tour of Antwerp features the City Hall, Market Square and the UNESCO-designated Cathedral of Our Lady, which houses four extraordinary works by one of the city’s most beloved sons—Peter Paul Rubens. At the old riverside dock area, there is a 19th-century warehouse that has been transformed into a restaurant and brewery where you can enjoy a beer tasting, specifically, Pakhuis’ unfiltered blonde beer.

Brussels, the vibrant capital of Belgium, offers a treasure trove of historic architecture, along with a rich culinary tradition.
