DUTCH DAHLIAS ON PARADE

New Tour

The Zundert Flower Parade has transformed this small town for many years. Bloemensco, as it is known locally is a year’s work for the volunteers from local villages who compete to create works of art with only dahlias. The results are spectacular. This great new tour also takes in some traditional Dutch sights. 

The four star Apollo Hotel, Breda sits in the heart of a city awash with history and architecture. We are returning to this hotel following the warm welcome and excellent service offered to us on previous visits. Rooms are comfortably furnished and air conditioned and the hotel has a lift.

Itinerary

Friday We make an early start and travel to Dover for our ferry crossing to Calais then on to the Apollo Hotel, Breda in time for dinner.

Saturday Today we visit one of Holland’s gems, the town of Delft. The lovely centre is best contemplated from its centuries-old canals and therefore we begin our visit with a 45 minute cruise of discovery. In the afternoon we visit the traditional town of Gouda, known for its namesake cheese and seasonal cheese market.

Sunday A full day in the town of Zundert for the annual Flower Parade. There is a carnival atmosphere, music and entertainment throughout the day before we take to our grandstand seats to see the lovingly decorated creations of Dahlias as they are proudly displayed on giant floats.

Monday After breakfast we visit Antwerp, the city of ancient diamond traders, cutters and polishers. The beautiful old centre is typified by its Flemish Renaissance architecture. The latter part of your afternoon will be free in Breda to explore the historic center with its many attractive old buildings and moats.

Tuesday We leave Holland and travel to Calais for the ferry crossing to Dover and then return to Cornwall arriving home late in the evening.
