DUTCH & BELGIAN WATERWAYS The tranquil waterways of the Low Countries carry you on a gentle, meandering course through flower-filled meadows, past quaint windmills, sleepy villages and picturesque towns, right into the heart of some of Europe's most vibrant cities. Keukenhof Every spring brings a dazzling display of colour to Keukenhof Park, when millions of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths burst into bloom, their delicious fragrances mingling in the air. For just eight weeks a year the world-renowned `Garden of Europe' invites visitors to savour the floral beauty of the region in this spectacular setting. Maastricht Maastricht is one of Holland's oldest cities, its historic centre an inviting mix of cobbled streets and squares. A great place to drink in the sights is at one of the many outdoor cafés that edge the beautiful Vrijthof Square, lined by trees and dominated by the majestic Romanesque cathedral, St Servatius Basilica. Antwerp Tradition and modernity collide delightfully in Belgium's second city, Antwerp, from the classical beauty of the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Italian-inspired Rubens House, to the idiosyncrasy of the 21st century Port House and MAS museum. It's also a great place to shop for fashion, diamonds and authentic Belgian chocolates! 15
