2024 - Dutch Dahlias on Parade

4 Day Tour
Enjoy 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
What The Price Includes
  • Hotel for 3 nights with breakfast
  • Buffet dinner on first evening
  • Porterage
  • Excursion to Zundert Flower Parade with seated ticket in area B

DAY 1 - After joining your holiday coach, you travel to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais, then continue to Holland via the auto-routes of France and Belgium and check into your hotel in central Breda for your 3-night stay. Buffet dinner included on the first evening // B&B for 2 nights 

DAY 2 - 3 - At leisure in Breda, with one included excursion and one optional excursion.

Easily walkable from your hotel, enjoy a full day at leisure in Breda, an unexpected delight of a city with its beautiful historic heart, numerous terraced cafes, imposing buildings and monuments and a distinctive bon-vivant atmosphere. Take time to explore and you may like to visit Breda's best known landmark, The Great Church (entrance is free but climbing the 287 steps of the 97m ornate tower costs approx. €7.50 pp - advanced booking may be required) as well as the wonderful Park Valkenburg, the former castle gardens.  Alternatively, why noy join the optional excursion to Heusden - details below

The hotel is just a 10 minute walk over a footbridge through the city park to the vibrant city centre. Breda is well-known for its wine and dine culture so you are sure to easily find plenty of interesting dining options on Saturday and Sunday evening. There are so many restaurants, brasseries and cafes and The Breda Food Hall is open until 9pm and offers a variety of world cuisines from 12 different kitchens under one roof


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.


Fortress Town of Heusden 

Travel back to a bygone era and picture-postcard little Brabant town of Heusden. You can expect picturesque old streets, narrow alleyways, countless centuries-old, beautifully preserved buildings and facades with magnificent stonework as well as antique tile-roofed houses and a lovely yacht harbour - all wrapped in a fortified river-moat which still retains its triangular ravelins (island-bastions). You may like to stroll atop the fortifications for a view of the marina and the Meuse river or take it easy in one of the pleasant terraces that look out onto the main town square. The Visitor Centre, centrally located in the former town hall, houses a model of the amazing fortifications.

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