Combine a visit to Floriade with a leisurely cruise along the waterways and rivers of Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, visiting a host of historic gardens and fascinating museums. We sail aboard the A-ROSA AQUA, a spacious and well-equipped river cruise ship, and enjoy Premium all-inclusive service with breakfast, lunch and dinner; snacks and afternoon tea, as well as unlimited high-quality drinks (tea, coffee, soft drinks, wine, beer, spirits and cocktails) all included.

Our cruise begins in Cologne, reached by a comfortable and stress-free train journey from London, and sails to the IJsselmeer, the great inland lake of the Netherlands, formerly the Zuidersee. A visit to Floriade is book-ended by visits to the historic and iconic windmills at Zaanse Schans and Kinderdijk along with a cruise around the bustling port of Rotterdam before we continue to Belgium. Here we visit the historic cities of Ghent and Antwerp, both with venerable botanic gardens and great works of art. Returning to the Netherlands we enjoy a walking tour of the Hanseatic city of Nijmegen and another well-stocked garden before returning to Cologne, where we disembark and return by train to London.
