DAHLIA PARADE & EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT BRUSSELS
Saturday 1st /Tuesday 4th September 2018
Morning departure with stops enroute to our crossing. We plan on breaking our journey in Belgium to stop for dinner and then continue to our hotel for the next two nights at Hilton Royal Park Soestduinen in Holland
After a leisurely breakfast we depart for the largest flower parade in the world, Corso Zundert. Zundert is located in the South of Holland. The annual parade features 20 giant floats created by various hamlets within the city. Teams of volunteers prepare for a year to create the giant floats that are completely adorned in dahlia with most floats containing over half a million flower heads. After the parade we will have a meal in Zundert before returning to the hotel.
We plan on visiting the Arnhem area before travelling to Brussels where we will spend the night at the Martins Hotel close to the EU Parliament.
In the morning we visit the European Parliament, firstly the Parlamentarium, the Parliament Visitor Centre that took 6 years to build at a cost of 21 million euro. There are media guide display information and short films at each stage of the visit and staff are on hand at each level should you require assistance.
Then we will have a briefing by an EU Official and hopefully meet one of our EU members of Parliament for a discussion & question & answers session before visiting the Parliamentary Chamber.
After lunch we will make our way home.
