    This morning, our included excursion takes us to Floralia, the spring flower exhibition in the park and greenhouses at the castle of Groot Bijgaarden. The park, which is approximately 14 hectares in size, incorporates many spring bulb varieties. The castle’s gardeners plant by hand, under direction from The Netherlands, more than one million bulbs. See tulips, lilies, narcissi, and daffodils and numerous botanical varieties. A sea of muscari, wild tulips, violets, azaleas and rhododendrons spreads out under the ancient trees. This afternoon, we include an excursion to Ghent, affectionately known as the ‘Flower Capital of Belgium’. This wonderful medieval Flemish harbour city has a wealth of stunning architecture to be explored. A visit to Ghent is certain to astound and impress. With its quaint canals and three impressive towers of St Nicholas Church, the Belfry and the magnificent St Baaf’s cathedral, containing the world famous fifteenth century painting the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, by Jan van Eyck, there is plenty for you to see and do.

    Today we have a full-day visit to Keukenhof Park to see the impressive blooms. Originally a simple kitchen garden filled with vegetables and herbs, Keukenhof Gardens has grown to become the world’s largest flower garden. Each year it is visited by thousands of people who come to see the six million bulbs bloom. Spilling across various themed gardens and four pavilions, Keukenhof is a natural paradise filled with spectacular flower displays, inspirational gardens, blossoming fruit trees, and unique art instillations. As you stroll through the fantastic vibrant carpet of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many other flowers you will have no doubt as to why Keukenhof is widely known as 'The Greatest Flower Show on Earth'. As entrance to the park is included, you can spend the day admiring the exuberant colours of spring, perhaps picking up some tips for your own garden.
