Experience a Dutch Christmas and join us on a Christmas break by coach to Valkenburg. From our base in Valkenburg, we offer excursions to amazing Aachen and the Rhine and Moselle Valleys. We spend Christmas Eve in Aachen, where you can roam the streets and visit the spectacular cathedral to get you in the festive spirit. On Christmas Day, enjoy a delicious turkey lunch, then in the afternoon, why not visit Monschau, where you can rebuild your appetite ahead of dinner and dancing back at the hotel. Finally, we spend Boxing Day relaxing and enjoying the stunning scenery of the Rhine and Moselle Valleys, all making for a magical Christmas holiday.
You will stay for four nights at the 3-star Hotel Walram located in the centre of Valkenburg. The hotel has a lift, restaurant, bar, indoor swimming pool, sauna and solarium.
Local departure by coach, then to Belgium for your overnight stay.
Today, we will have a short visit to Leuven before continuing to the hotel in Valkenburg for a four-night stay.
This morning we have an included excursion to Aachen. The historic Old Town is perfect for visitors to stroll around. Here you can discover the charm of the narrow lanes and historic squares and be inspired by Aachen’s 2000 years of history. Aachen is widely known as the Cathedral City, a very special world heritage site, or the City of Fountains, and owes its national recognition as a healing spa city to its more than 30 sulphurous springs. Return to Valkenburg for time at leisure in this popular Dutch town.
Merry Christmas! Enjoy a relaxed morning at leisure before Christmas Day turkey lunch, followed in the afternoon by a visit the quaint German town of Monschau. Located on the banks of a small river and overlooked from opposite hillsides by the ruins of a stone watchtower and an old palace. Monschau is a classically pretty town, linked by a series of bridges, the town’s restaurants and shops lead up to the town centre where a charming church proudly stands. Later this evening enjoy dinner at the hotel followed by music and dancing.
