Full description
Once you are picked up at your local meeting point, take an 85-minute drive from Amsterdam to your first destination, the Castle of Heeswijk. Brabant’s most beautiful castle is almost a thousand years old and occupies a prominent position in the Aa Valley.

After your visit at the Castle of Heeswijk, drive the road where the 101st Airborne Division had vanquished strategic bridges. In this area, you will also pass by the windmill of Eerde. The windmill and village changed hands for at least six times and eventually got knocked out by artillery fire. Your next stop will be Boshuys Restaurant for lunch. Next, you can decide whether or not you will like to visit the Wings of Liberation Museum. Finally, finish your day with the choice of two attractions: The ultimate 5D VR flight experience over the Dutch countryside or a relaxing canal cruise to admire Amsterdam's most famous attractions.

The cruise passes all of Amsterdam's most famous attractions and you’ll encounter canal houses from the Golden Age, the Westerkerk, and the Anne Frank House. The unique 5D flight experience doesn’t just show you the Netherlands, it lets you live it. Experience breathtaking films providing you with spectacular views from the air and new insights into how the Netherlands was created. Thanks to the astonishing special effects projected on a huge domed screen, you’ll feel like you’re soaring over the must-see sites of the Netherlands.
