During Your Stay
Day 1 – We travel to the Hotel Walram, situated beside the River Geul in Walram Square in the centre of Valkenburg.
Day 2 – Today we enjoy all the festivities in Valkenburg, Holland’s Christmas capital! The city’s square is transformed into a winter wonderland, home to Europe’s largest singing Christmas tree. Our favourite part is the Christmas Market hidden in the Municipal Cave of Valkenburg aan de Geul – the largest and oldest underground Christmas Market in Europe. We have included admission into the Christmas caves for you to explore at leisure.
Day 3 – After breakfast we visit Aachen Christmas Market – regularly voted as one of Europe’s Best Christmas Markets. Each year the squares and streets around Aachen’s magnificent Cathedral are transformed into a paradise of lights, colours, festive sounds and seductive smells. On our way back to the hotel this afternoon we take a heavenly visit to the Lindt Chocolate Warehouse, here you will find gorgeous Lindt chocolates at an even sweeter reduced rate!
Day 4 – Our first destination today is Liege, home to the largest Christmas Village in Belgium. Later, we take you to Maastricht, a wonderful city that takes on that extra spellbinding edge during the festive season, under the name of “Magical Maastricht”. So, visit the Christmas market, perhaps go ice skating or enjoy a ride on the Ferris wheel.
Day 5 – We retrace our footsteps back through Europe, until we return home.
