Explore the city at leisure, enjoying its architecture and historical details.
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.
Full Day: Keukenhof Gardens
Experience the dazzling floral displays in the seven themed gardens with a never-ending variety of spring bulbs and flowers. Admire beautiful tulips, daffodils, narcissi, hyacinths and many other varieties of flowers, taking in the kaleidoscope of colour.
Half Day: Volendam
The picturesque village of Volendam is one of the best known ports of the old Zuiderzee and a favourite Dutch resort. It is also famous for its association with famous artists such as Picasso and Renoir who were attracted to the area. Wander along the narrow alleyways which wind between the pretty gabled houses.
See Amsterdam from a different perspective on this 75 minute cruise around the famous canals. English commentary is provided as we cruise around the sites and attractions of Amsterdam and it will also give us a chance to learn more about the city’s history.
