Your super-value Amsterdam City Tour & Keukenhof Combo shows you not only the highlights of Amsterdam but also one of the world’s most famous gardens.
Amsterdam is The Netherlands’ largest city. Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, it became one of the world’s most important ports during the Dutch Golden Age. The wealth acquired in that time left a legacy of stunningly beautiful buildings and great art.
On your sightseeing tour, you will see many of the city highlights. These include:
• The neo-classical Royal Palace, on Dam Square, which served as the city hall from 1655 until it was turned into a royal residence in 1808;
• The National Monument, a white stone pillar erected in 1956 to commemorate the victims of World War II;
• The famous “Skinny Bridge”, a typical Dutch wooden lifting bridge. Originally very narrow, the bridge has been widened over the years, but it remains one of Amsterdam’s most photogenic bridges.
• The gorgeous gabled canal-side houses built by wealthy merchants
• The bustling Albert Cuyp street market.
After the city tour, proceed for a visit to one of the many Diamond Factories for which Amsterdam is so well renowned and you will also stop for a picture at a windmill on the way.
You will then visit the glorious spring gardens of Keukenhof, (the name means “Kitchen Garden” in Dutch because the area was once a source of herbs for a grand castle). Keukenhof is also known as “The Garden of Europe” and the 32-hectare park is the world’s largest flower garden.
Keukenhof is renowned for its springtime flowers – approximately 7 million bulbs are planted annually. Wander along winding paths past sparkling streams, pretty ponds and a breath-taking array of blooms. A fresh display of spectacular blooms will be waiting for you around every corner.
