The Golden Age of Amsterdam
with Gettysburg College
June 10th-17th, 2019 | Maximum Group Size: 20 Participants | Availability: Open
Join Gettysburg College for an in-depth exploration of Amsterdam on a program led by Professor Kay Etheridge, who has an insider’s knowledge of the city.
In the UNESCO World Heritage site of historic Amsterdam, we will travel the tree-shaded canals, marvel at the Dutch Master collection in the Rijksmuseum, and perhaps linger in a local pub to sample one of the 100 types of Dutch beer. This program has a good mix of planned activities – including visits to Haarlem for the Frans Hals Museum, the Teylers Museum and the Ship Museum – and free time to explore sites like the Heineken brewery, the Anne Frank House or the Van Gogh Museum.

Tulips & chocolate: Exploring the Art & Culture of Holland & Belgium
April 10th-18th, 2020 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open
This spring we explore the gardens, art, cuisine and culture of this tiny nation and that of neighboring northern Belgium – together known collectively as Flanders. We begin and end in Amsterdam, a city built on a network of canals with its tall and narrow brick houses reflected in the glimmering water. We include a guided tour of the world-famous Rijksmuseum, spend a day at the Royal Palaces to the east of the city and visit the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens. Our travels then take us over the border to the city of Bruges where we will investigate the three main things for which the region is famous: art, beer and chocolate!
