Itinerary

Day One

Travelling by comfortable coach, you'll leave the local area and travel to the Channel port for your crossing. You'll spend the night in a hotel in the Leuven area.

Day Two

Today we'll continue into Germany. We'll stop en route in Aachen, once the capital of the Holy Roman Empire, with its wonderful Christmas Market near Charlemagne's ancient cathedral, and after time to explore we'll continue to our festive hotel, where a complimentary drink awaits.

Day Three (Christmas Eve)

Take a Christmas Eve trip to historic Koblenz, with its colourful Christmas market. Wander riverside promenades, historic squares and the picturesque alleyways that nestle beneath the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. You'll also visit pretty Cochem, a Moselle wine town in a fairy-tale setting beneath the Reichsburg castle.

Day Four (Christmas Day)

Take in the beautiful scenery with a riverside drive to Oberwesel this Christmas morning. Lunch and dinner will be served at your hotel, so the rest of the day is yours to relax and enjoy.

Day Five

Today there's the chance to explore Rhine-side Rudesheim on an optional excursion. Stroll along the Drosselgasse - a narrow cobbled street lined with traditional wine bars, ride through the town's slumbering vineyards on the Winzerexpress road train and visit Siegfried�s Mechanisches Musikkabinett - a fascinating museum full of perfectly preserved mechanical musical instruments - before returning to the hotel for dinner.

Day Six

Board the coach to begin your journey home. En route to our overnight hotel we'll stop near the Luxembourg border to explore Trier - Germany's oldest city.

Day Seven

Today we'll continue home, cross the Channel and complete the journey back to your original pick-up point.
