You will stay for six nights at the 3-star Hotel Walram in the centre of Valkenburg.
Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to Valkenburg for a six-night stay.
Day at leisure to relax and explore Valkenburg’s quaint cobbled streets and pretty buildings. Situated at the crossroads of three countries, Valkenburg has long been a favourite destination on account of its exuberance and extremely varied appeal. Valkenburg, or the 'Marlstone Town' as it is known locally, is famous for its castle and the elaborate system of Roman caves and tunnels that run beneath the town. Explore the quaint cobbled streets and beautiful buildings of this enchanting fortified town, or alternatively, relax with a glass of the local white beer.
Location: Amsterdam & Canal Cruise
Today we travel to Holland’s cosmopolitan capital city of Amsterdam on our included excursion. Amsterdam is a city with something for everyone, from romantic canal cruises, fantastic gastronomic experiences, art, diamonds, shopping, culture, history and much, much more. Enjoy a relaxed optional cruise along myriad canals for which Amsterdam is famous. Listen to an interesting and informative commentary as we sail past many of the famous sights of the capital and we also have the added bonus of seeing parts of the city which are not accessible by coach.
Location: Free Time or Rhine & Moselle Valleys
Our optional excursion takes us to the majestic Rhine Valley. Famous for its picture-postcard villages, fairy tale castles and vineyards, there is no wonder that the area is considered by many to offer the most picturesque scenery in Germany. We visit the quaint Rhineland town of Boppard, which was once a Roman fort. Enjoy time at leisure in this pretty town to explore or amble along the promenade. During the day, an optional River Rhine lunch cruise will be available. We cruise through the Rhine gorge, famous for its ancient castles, picturesque villages and vine-clad slopes, and enjoy lunch on board ship. Later, we travel to Alken in the Moselle Valley, where we enjoy an optional wine tasting at the house of Anton Hammes, one of the famous vintners of the area. The Hammes family have been vintners here for over 300 years, and you will enjoy a wine tasting, with 4 or 5 different varieties offered, before having the chance to purchase your favourites to bring home with you!
Location: Drielandenpunt & Aachen
Today we travel to the Drielandenpunt (Three Country Point), near to the town of Vaals and where the borders of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands all meet. There will be a short amount of time here to take photos before we continue into Germany to the nearby city of Aachen. Aachen is famous for its magnificent cathedral and the Elisenbrunnen fountain, which is also the symbol of the town. There will be free time here for you to explore before returning to the hotel in time for your evening meal.
Location: Monschau or Free Time in Valkenburg
Enjoy a relaxing day in the town of Valkenburg or join our morning optional visit to the charming little town of Monschau, tucked into the hilly landscape of the Eifel mountain range.
