Must See: Keukenhof Gardens
Holland is at its dazzling best in spring. Situated in the town of Lisse, Keukenhof is a magical place which has been welcoming garden lovers since 1949. Enjoy the ultimate spring feeling as you tip-toe through the largest flower garden in the world with a myriad of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and other spring flowering bulbs. The overwhelming kaleidoscope of colour and intense scents cannot fail to impress.

The Keukenhof theme for 2015 is Van Gogh, commemorating 125 years since his death. The main highlight will be a flower mosaic, measuring 250m2 planted using different colours of tulips, based on a self-portrait by the artist.

The tulip variety ‘Vincent van Gogh’ will be planted in the Walk of Fame. The works of an Gogh will serve as a wonderful source of inspiration for the many flower shows in the Orange Nassau Pavilion.

Full Day: Amsterdam

As Holland’s capital city, Amsterdam is guaranteed to be a fantastic place to visit during our New Year break. The city is famous for its expansive canal system and many bridged islands, for which it’s earned the name ‘Venice of the North’. This bustling city will be a highlight on our holiday, as it is absolutely packed with things to do. 

The Museum Square, or ‘Museumplein’, is home to some of the most significant museums in the city, such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum. All three are well worth touring in our spare time in the city, and there’s also the Anne Frank House and the Civic Guards Gallery, as well as many other exhibits and sights.
