Upon arrival we will distribute the lunch boxes and your guide will take you to the reserved seating area where you will have the best view of the flower parade passing by.  


Zundert’s flower parade is an annual explosion of dahlias. Zundert’s village districts, made up of 20 teams,  are engaged in a  yearly competition  to build the finest float to be judged by a professional and independent jury.  
All summer long the floats are being built. By the end of August they are ready except for one important detail: the flowers. Of course, the dahlias can only be fixed on the floats at the very last moments, since they would wither if applied earlier. This is a challenging job that has to be performed within just a few days. Hundreds of volunteers are drummed up in every village quarter to work through the night to get their  float finished just before the Sunday parade. 


A professional jury ranks the floats and only the winner may stop at the second passage along the main grandstands, resulting in an emotional outbreak dubbed the ‘Zundert jubilee’. 

Fun fact: Vincent van Gogh was born in Zundert.
He enjoyed a privileged childhood in the village.

After the 3 hour flower parade you will be escorted back to the bus for the return trip to Amsterdam. The day after you can enjoy the free 1 hr Amsterdam Canal cruise that is included when booking this tour.
