Unique, historic cities
This fascinating festive break introduces a pair of Europe's most enchanting and colourful festive markets. Step into the magical world of Valkenburg's Christmas Grotto and soak up the seasonal excitement on Maastricht's famous Vrijthof Square.
Board the coach at your pick-up point, then relax as we head to the Channel. Following our crossing to Calais, our coach will continue to your hotel, about 60 minutes outside of Maastricht.
This morning we'll head into Maastricht, where the squares of the historic centre, including the famous Vrijthof, are alive with celebration. As well as beautifully decorated shops and wooden chalets, you'll find an ice-skating rink and a festive Ferris wheel.
This afternoon a short journey takes you to Valkenburg, an exquisite town in a wooded setting and with pretty squares fringed with bars and cafes. Experience the magic of its atmospheric Christmas markets, including that held in the Gemeentegrot (Municipal) cave.
After a final breakfast we'll begin our journey home, crossing the Channel and arriving home late this evening at the end of an unforgettably festive few days.
