From the Dutch capital of Amsterdam to the medieval Belgian city of Bruges, the new boutique riverboat Magnifique IV allows you to feel you are immersed in the region’s charming and storied landscapes. OPTIONAL PRELUDE: only open every 10 years, arrive a day early and visit The Floriade Expo 2022.

In the Netherlands, begin in Amsterdam to admire the splendid masterpieces of the Rijksmuseum. Then, embark Magnifique IV for a seven-night cruise through storybook villages and idyllic countryside. In picturesque Kinderdijk, view impressive windmills at a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and continue to historic Dordrecht, stopping to see the Great Church, the Dordrecht Museum, and a medieval monastery. Explore the Belgian cities of Antwerp, where you will visit the Rubens House, and Dendermonde, known for its spectacular Flemish buildings.

Call at Ghent for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: be among the first to behold Jan van Eyck’s newly restored Ghent Altarpiece in its original home, Saint Bavo’s Cathedral. Conclude among the canals, cobblestones, and medieval buildings of charming Bruges. There, visit the Groeninge Museum for works by Jan van Eyck and other great Flemish artists, see Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child in the Church of Our Lady, and meet a local artist. Go behind the scenes in the charming town of Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
