Greatdays Travel Group are holding places exclusively for Oddfellows members and their guests to experience one of the most magnificent spectacles in Europe, the Zundert Flower Parade.

Blossoming from small town roots to become the international bloomin’ extravaganza it is today, the vibrant flower parade in the Dutch town of Zundert on the Belgian border attracts thousands of visitors every year.

Each colossal floral float – portraying subjects from the beautiful to the surreal – is handcrafted and decorated with hundreds of thousands of locally-grown dahlias. Add in street entertainers plus markets selling regional food and drink, and it’s easy to see why this unforgettable experience really draws in the crowds.

Take in the joys of the parade with fellow members from reserved grandstand seating, with time to explore the charming town of Zundert itself too.

4-star hotel

But that’s not all! After the parade, guests can enjoy the comforts of the 4-star Ramada Plaza Hotel in Antwerp, your stylish base for this enjoyable minibreak. Treat yourself with a buffet breakfast and sample the local delicacies over three-courses for your evening meal – all included in your Oddfellows deal.

What’s more, there’s also time to take in the cultural highlights of Antwerp, with day three dedicated to exploring this charming, medieval town. Discover Antwerp’s beautiful gabled buildings, and admire the majesty of the town’s most famous painter, Rubens. Not forgetting plenty of opportunities to enjoy some of Belgium’s most popular exports – chocolate and beer!
