During your cruise choose to visit the iconic Keukenhof Flower Gardens. This beautiful park features more tulips in flower than anywhere else in the world. Over seven million bulbs are planted here annually, with visitors from around the globe coming to explore the nine-and-a-half-mile network of footpaths, including the largest sculpture park in the Netherlands. This expansive park, with its art, royal flair and creative diversity attracts over a million visitors each year. Countless tulips, narcissi and hyacinths form colorful carpets of blooms. Round, oval, triangular and rectangular borders line the park’s driveways, making a cheerful ensemble of colors, shapes and scents. Alternating exhibitions, known as parades, bloom in several pavilions. Numerous sculptures can be found tucked between the many flowerbeds, as harmony between art and nature is a major staple of this park. A visit to the Keukenhof Flower Gardens really is a once in a lifetime experience for any horticulturist!
Another exciting opportunity during your “Tulip Serenade” is an excursion to the Floriade Expo 2022, the only recurring horticultural expo in Europe, which takes place only once every 10 years. Allow Floriade to transport you to a fantastic place overhauled with the scents and colors of endless flowers, plants, vegetables, and fruit. During the Floriade Expo, the Dutch horticulture sector, in conjunction with national and international participants, will exhibit revolutionary green solutions that will make our cities more fun, livable and sustainable for future generations. This unique event will be a celebration of green and sustainable technology that you’ll be able to experience for yourself firsthand. You can also choose to pair this exciting excursion with our popular “Classical Rhine” itinerary from Amsterdam to Basel or reverse.
A rare event taking place in 2022 is the Oberammergau Passion Play. Occurring every 10 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, incorporating the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with their own tragic story. Discover for yourself how this memorable dramatic experience inspires passion, a 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 cruises.
