Avalon Waterways
Avalon Imagery II

Begin your tulip season cruise in Amsterdam. Cruise to Arnhem and tour its WWII Airborne Museum commemorating the brave battle of 1944. Join your ship in Nijmegen and visit the lovely forest setting of ‘s-Hertogenbosch to sample decadent Dutch chocolate desserts. Perhaps visit a fruit and flower farm to visit with the miller there to hear the history of a 15th-century windmill. A carriage ride takes you through the nearby nature reserve to watch for herons, storks, birds of prey, and wild horses. If you prefer, take a guided bike ride along the Rhine River banks of Arnhem. In Maastricht, choos a sightseeing tour of the old cobblestoned university town, or visit a working mill to make your own Limburg pie.
