Spring Cruise Netherlands and Belgium

It’s always a pleasure to sail through the Limburg and Belgian countryside in spring, especially if you know that you will be visiting the towns of Maastricht, Hasselt and Antwerp. This attractive town of Maastricht is situated at the foot of the St. Pietersberg hill and offers plenty of sights, including the famous Vrijthof square. Antwerp in Belgium certainly lives up to its name, and enjoyment is guaranteed. This holiday makes an excellent combination with the 7 day Easter Cruise Rüdesheim.

Thursday April 16: Arnhem - Nijmegen

We welcome you on board the Poseidon from 16:00. This new holiday will begin as soon as you have unpacked your luggage. At 18:00 we cast off in Arnhem and set sail for Nijmegen. After dinner you can go for a walk through the town centre. Nijmegen has a rich history and there are plenty of sights within walking distance. De Waag on the Grote Markt market place, Sint-Stevenskerk church and the Valkhof are all worth visiting.

Friday April 17: Nijmegen - Roermond

While you are enjoying breakfast we will make our way along Limburg’s River Maas (Meuse). Early in the afternoon we will arrive at our next stop, Roermond. This attractive town, which is also known as the ‘Beating heart of Limburg’ is rich in cultural sights. Roermond has a lively shopping centre and is uniquely located on the Maasplassen watersports area. The town centre with its lovely squares houses a wealth of historic buildings, such as churches and old trading houses.

Saturday April 18: Roermond - Maastricht

On arrival in Maastricht you can join a guided tour(*) through Maastricht, or if you prefer, you can of course explore the centre of Maastricht by yourself. It is comprised almost entirely of old buildings with beautiful facades and there are street cafes and shops in abundance. We certainly recommend you walk to the centrally located Vrijthof square.

Sunday April 19: Maastricht - Hasselt

We leave the River Maas early and sail to Hasselt in Belgium via the Albert Canal. We will moor here early in the afternoon. This town has the nickname ‘Capital of Taste’ thanks to its many catering and fashion outlets. Did you know that Hasselt and jenever (juniper gin) are inseparable? There is also a Jenever Museum in the middle of the town.

Monday April 20: Hasselt - Antwerp

The silhouette of Antwerp harbour will appear on the horizon during the afternoon. Antwerp’s beating heart is a bit further away from the ship, but you can sign up on board for a city tour(*). It will take you to the Groenplaats where the famous Mier shopping street begins, via the Market place and the cathedral. The Museum aan de Stroom (Museum by the River) is close to our landing stage. It’s an impressive ten storey building with several museum collections which tell the story of the city, the harbour and the world. You can get spectacular views of Antwerp from the museum roof.

Tuesday April 21: Antwerp - Schoonhoven

We set sail before breakfast and continue towards Schoonhoven. The silversmith trade remains important In this small town on the River Lek. The evidence of this is in the many monumental silver workshops and silversmith houses, as well as the country’s only vocational school for gold and silver smiths.

Wednesday April 22: Schoonhoven - Arnhem

The last day of this holiday has arrived. Our home port of Arnhem will come into view at around 14:00. We will round off this wonderful holiday with the words ‘See you again’.
