4 days

Join us for this colourful weekend and marvel at the incredible floral displays at the annual Zundert Flower Parade which has been taking place for over 80 years. Using half a million locally grown dahlias, twenty nearby villages compete to craft giant, elaborate floats covered in the pom-pom like blooms.  The spectacular creations are kept top secret until parade day when they wind their way through the town and the judges make their decision. You will enjoy the dazzling action with a seated ticket for the parade and there is plenty of fun to be had with all kinds of street entertainment, music and stalls to enjoy

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS

Breda & Dordrecht

Transfer the short distance into the centre of Breda, an unexpected delight of a city with its beautiful historic centre, numerous terraced cafes, imposing buildings and monuments and a distinctive bon-vivant atmosphere. There will be time to explore and you may like to visit Breda’s best known building,

The Great Church (entrance is free but climbing the tower costs approx. €5) as well as the wonderful Park Valkenburg, the former castle gardens.  Continue to Holland’s oldest city, Dordrecht with its 100s of monuments, ancient warehouses and inner city harbours. Best discovered on foot, you may like to follow the ‘Rondje Dordt’, a signposted walk around the historic centre.

 

Zundert Flower Parade

Enjoy the highlight of the weekend – the ‘Corso Zundert’, the biggest flower parade in the world. After a short transfer to the quaint Dutch village of Zundert, birthplace of Vincent Van Gogh, you will marvel at this annual, vibrant spectacle and the riot of colour as the towering floats pass by. You will have a ticket for a numbered seat in area B where the parade passes twice.

 

DAY 4 – Drive back to Calais today and the return ferry crossing to Dover, arriving home during the evening.
