River Cruises

Netherlands & Belgium

Our river cruises perfectly capture the essence of this region... from the wild array of bulbs blooming during springtime... to fairy-tale castles and picture-book villages... to the windmills that charmingly dot the countryside and the lively canals of Amsterdam.

Netherlands & Belgium Escorted Cruises
Keukenhof Gardens

Welcome to the Netherlands & Belgium

The Netherlands and Belgium have much to offer and are regions ripe with tradition and innovation, maritime heritage and influential Dutch Masters... not to mention the true gems of this region that bring it to life in springtime with an endless sea of blooming tulips, daffodils and hyacinths along the inland waterways, in cities like Antwerp or Maastricht or in grand gardens like Keukenhof.

Dutch Tulips in bloom

Everywhere in The Netherlands, a spot of local color...

The tulip has been an important part of the culture and economy of what is now The Netherlands since the 16th century – and in fact, speculation on out-of-control tulip bulb prices is thought to have caused one of Europe's earliest financial panics in the 1630s. These remarkable flowers are still a cultural icon today throughout The Netherlands... where you'll see them in grand gardens like Keukenhof in Lisse, and in the gardens and flower boxes of private homes and public buildings alike throughout the country.

Windmills of Kinderdijk

Check out the world's largest collection of centuries-old Dutch windmills at Kinderdijk in The Netherlands

Insights into windmills and their ubiquitous role in Dutch life await you on a visit to the village of Kinderdijk, where the flat landscape, crisscrossed with canals, is home to the largest concentration of windmills in the country. The 19 windmills, most of them built in the 18th century, are national monuments; for centuries, their massive wind-driven mechanisms have been used to pump water out of the polder and into reservoirs and canals, reclaiming land from the river. Such ingenious methods of water management have enabled the Netherlands, a country that’s almost fifty percent below sea level, to exist at all, lending weight to the local saying, “God created the Earth, but the Dutch created Holland.”

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Schloss Ehreshoven

Enjoy an elegant dinner and tour at Schloss Ehreshoven

Built in the 14th century and later expanded in the grand style of a Baroque manor house, Schloss Ehreshoven is surrounded by gracious 18th-century French gardens and a castle park. For nearly a century the castle has been the heart of a charitable foundation whose main mission includes providing a home for unmarried aristocratic ladies without means in their golden years. Frequently used as a location for movies and TV shows, the Schloss provides an elegant setting for Tauck's exclusive cocktail reception and dinner, hosted by a member of the family.

Tauck Bridges Family Travel

Visit the Netherlands with your family on our "Castles on the Rhine" family river cruise

Take a canal boat cruise through Amsterdam (and see just how fast the Dutch go on their bicycles)... visit the city flower market... and tour the Dutch capital's van Gogh Museum as you and your family cruise through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands aboard Tauck's "Castles on the Rhine: Family Riverboat Adventure."

Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands

Spring is definitely in the air at the Netherlands' Keukenhof Gardens

It’s only open to the public two months a year... but during those two months in spring, Keukenhof Gardens in the Dutch town of Lisse puts on an annual show that can best be described in visions. Just picture tulips, multicolored and in the millions; daffodils, golden-hued with beauty unmatched; hyacinths, pink, purple and white perfumed and pretty; and narcissi, cupshaped and showy, all flowering simultaneously as far as your eyes can see. It's a show you won't want to miss.
