This friendly hotel is set in a quiet location in the suburb of Bad Aachen. You are assured of a warm welcome by our hosts, Petra and Roger, who have been accommodating our clients for many years.

Excursions

Full Day: Cologne (Included)

We visit Cologne with its historic old town and many shops, cafes and restaurants. Do not miss the spectacular Gothic cathedral which dominates the cityscape, as both the exterior and interior of this striking building are breathtakingly beautiful. You may also enjoy a stroll along the riverside promenade, or for shopping, visit the pedestrianised Konigsallee.


Maastricht (Included)

Discover the charming city of Maastricht in Holland, with its charming cobbled old town, dominated by the Gothic style church of Sint Janskerk. Look out as well for the futuristic Bonnefanten art museum, which is set on the banks of the Maas River.


Monschau

We’ll head into the scenic Eiffel region to visit the historic town of Monschau today. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the winding alleys and take in the beautiful half-timbered houses that are traditional in Germany.


Valkenburg (Included)

We spend time exploring the friendly Dutch town of Valkenburg, known for its charming town centres and historical chalk houses (known locally as mergel). Enjoy time at leisure to admire the town's many sights, such as the ruins of Valkenburg Castle, a number of beautiful churches and its many historical buildings.
