Amadeus River Cruises is a family-owned European river cruise company with over 40 years of experience. We are excited to introduce you to several exciting events occurring in 2022 which pair perfectly with an Amadeus River Cruise. Join us onboard one of our luxury vessels as we cruise through the beautiful scenic rivers in Europe for a truly memorable vacation.
Tulips are synonymous with Holland! A highlight of every beautiful spring tulip festival season in Holland is the Dutch Tulip Parade. People from all over enjoy this famous parade in Holland with its spring flowers,such as hyacinths, daffodils and tulips, which are used to construct the parade floats. This dazzling display of springtime can be enjoyed in conjunction with our Tulip Serenade cruise which begins and ends in Amsterdam, Holland.
A “can’t miss” for garden enthusiasts is the Floriade Expo 2022, the only recurring horticultural Expo in Europe, which takes place only once every ten years. For six months, from the 14th of April to the 9th of October in 2022, Floriade will become a world stage for all things green. The theme for 2022’s Floriade Expo is “Growing Green Cities,” and will shine a spotlight on how horticulture will play a major role in cities of the future. This amazing event includes presentations from 40 countries, a spectacular greenhouse complex, a cable car over the luscious Floriade park, pavilions with sustainable innovations, as well as a vibrant arts and culture program. Be inspired as you take a stroll through a living library of trees, plants, and flowers, or visit the greenhouse complex where Dutch Horticulture is on glorious display, among many other exhibits. This Expo will be the permanent beginnings of a new city district, close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands, called Almere. The Floriade Expo can be visited in conjunction with our popular Classical Rhine itinerary and may be booked from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland or reverse.
Another rare event taking place in 2022 is the Oberammergau Passion Play. Occurring every ten years on a stage set against a backdrop of breathtaking vistas, the villagers of Oberammergau, Germany perform one of the most unique Passion Plays in the world by incorporating the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with their own tragic story. Discover for yourself how this memorable dramatic experience inspires passion, and renewed faith and hope in all who encounter the production of the Oberammergau Passion Play. Amadeus River Cruises is offering an optional two-night Pre-Cruise Oberammergau package paired with a Classical Danube cruise from Passau to Budapest on select 2022 dates.
