5 Memories You’ll Never Forget on a Holiday Vacations Tour of Holland

When you imagine a visit to Holland, what picture appears in your mind? Is it the fields of bright flowers, the historic and colorful windmills, or Amsterdam’s streetside canals? On a Holiday Vacations agriculture tour of Holland, we will have all of these experiences and more. Join us as we touch on five major moments on our Holland getaways that you will remember fondly for years to come.


Stepping back in time at Zaanse Schans

5 Memories You’ll Never Forget on a Holiday Vacations Tour of HollandOur Holland tour kicks off with a visit to the incredible open-air museum of Zaanse Schans. Feel the fresh air as you stroll the living exhibits that reveal classic Dutch heritage. During the 18th and 19th century, this region had hundreds of windmills tended by families making linseed oil, paint, mustard, paper, and more. Today we are invited to explore the heritage park, see historic buildings, watch artisans work their traditional trades such as clogs and cheese, and more.

 

Laying flowers over the graves of American heroes

They haven’t forgotten. In Margraten, a Dutch city near the Belgian border, lies a military cemetery that is home to fallen American armed forces. The soldiers that rest here fought to liberate the Netherlands during World War II. The field of more than 8,300 crosses and stars of David are cared for by Dutch, Belgian, and German families. During our time here, we are invited to lay flowers over the graves of these heroes and honor the sacrifice they made more than 70 years ago.

 

Visiting the Anne Frank House

5 Memories You’ll Never Forget on a Holiday Vacations Tour of Holland 2During our time in Amsterdam we’ll go on a walking tour of the city center and enjoy a narrated boat ride through the canals. Another major moment will be our time in the canal house where World War II’s most famous diary was written. Located in downtown Amsterdam, we’ll explore The Anne Frank House, which preserves the Frank family’s secret annex and educates visitors about Anne and her family’s ordeal.

 

Exploring Royal Delft Pottery

5 Memories You’ll Never Forget on a Holiday Vacations Tour of Holland 3Join us for a tour of Royal Delft Pottery, the earthenware makers famous for the iconic blue and white pottery. Europe’s desire for this historic style of pottery began around the 17th century when the Dutch East India Company brought home blue painted porcelain from China. We’ll tour the 350 year-old factory and learn about the company’s history and techniques.
