Cosmopolitan, continental, sophisticated: The Netherlands has
always been a country of style and culture with much to offer in
its two main cities, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Amsterdam in
particular is a thriving cultural powerhouse made up of museums,
art galleries and theatres. The rural Netherlands also has much to
offer, with towns like Utrecht and Delft offering a taste of old
Dutch charm, lined with canals and grand old houses.
Stretching across six countries, the Rhine River is the
Netherland's most prominent river, followed by the Waal River. Both
of these waterways drift past unrivalled scenes of stone bridges,
windmills and tulip fields, lending a tranquil rustic charm to any
cruise journey taken on the gentle water.
