Middleburg, The Netherlands

Discover the extraordinary province of Zeeland, where medieval Middleburg and the world’s biggest storm surge barrier, the Delta Works, are located. Gabled houses, winding cobbled streets and architectural masterpieces, including the octagonal, domed Oostkerk Baroque church and the ornamented Gothic Stadhuis Town Hall, exemplify Middleburg.

Ghent & Bruges, Belgium

Spellbinding Ghent lures you into its dreamy environs with the Gravensteen, its impeccably restored 12th-century Castle of the Counts; the Gothic Cathedral of St. Bavo, known for its masterfully painted Ghent Altarpiece; and the 14th-century Belfry of Ghent, featuring 52 bells. Equally magical is Bruges, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe.

Antwerp, Belgium

Antwerp is steeped in history, culture, fashion – and diamonds! Antwerp’s Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady, boasts breathtaking stained glass and artwork from Peter Paul Rubens. Grote Markt, situated in the heart of the old city quarter, is home to Antwerp’s 16th-century City Hall and legendary Brabo Fountain with its colorful quilt of flowers.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Rotterdam boasts groundbreaking architecture, like the Erasmus Bridge and whimsical Cube Houses and De Rotterdam. It’s the only city in the Netherlands with a skyline and its harbor is the world’s second largest. Also located here is Delfshaven, a historic harbor where the Pilgrim Fathers lived in exile before leaving for the New World.

Kinderdijk, The Netherlands

One of Holland’s most photographed attractions, Kinderdijk, is an idyllic village renowned for its 19 well-preserved windmills dating back to the 1500s. Were it not for the windmill, this region would have surrendered to water a long time ago. They are also an iconic emblem of the Netherlands – at one point, there were more than 10,000 in the country.
