Barging in Holland
Holland is famous, of course, for its tulips, but as a land with a rich artistic and cultural history, it has a lot more to offer. The western provinces of the land of water are populated by windmills which sit above the polders and along the very river that gave its name to Amsterdam.
Visitors are entranced by the colors of the bulb fields and the magnificence of the formal gardens such as the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens, but at the same time marvel at the architecture and engineering feats of its innovative people.
Lovers of culture come from far and wide to tour the traditional Dutch cities and their many museums. Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Haarlem will charm you, just as they did the great artists, while other attractions such as the Delft Blue potteries and Gouda cheese market are equally memorable.
The Euro Escapes Difference
Planning a Barge cruise vacation can be exciting, but also confusing. There are many barges from which to choose at different price levels. That is why we have taken the time to inspect the barges that we recommend here. Little things do matter, and the style of the boat, size of the cabin, type of food served aboard, crew, captain and tours offered make a big difference.
Let our experts at Euro Escapes help you choose the right cruise for you.
