Day One: Catch the Eurostar to Brussels
Leave London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet International by Eurostar in the morning or early afternoon. Upon arrival in Brussels, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel. You'll then have the rest of the day free to relax.
Day Two: André Rieu concert in Maastricht
At around 1pm today we'll board the coach and travel to Maastricht. For the rest of the afternoon and early evening, wander the pedestrianised, cobbled streets around Vrijthof Square and explore the attractive shops, cafes and bars, or join our optional private river cruise.
In the evening, take your seat in the Vrijthof Square for the highlight of your break - André Rieu and The Johann Strauss Orchestra in concert. In this magical setting, they'll perform music from across André's repertoire, including classical greats and themes from operas, musicals and films, as well as his trademark waltzes.
After the concert is over, our coach will take you back to your hotel.
Day Three: Travel home from Brussels
After some free time, return to Brussels Midi to begin your Eurostar journey home (departing in the afternoon or early evening), at the end of a wonderful concert break.
You will be staying in a four-star-standard hotel in the attractive Belgian town of Leuven or the surrounding area, about 20 miles east of Brussels. All the hotels used will represent a good combination of quality and value for money, and offer excellent public facilities including a restaurant and bar.
N.B. Some of the hotels we use have not been officially star-rated, but have been assessed by us as the equivalent of a four-star-standard hotel.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from Brussels Midi Station to your hotel in Leuven is approximately 45 minutes.
Please note that this is an outdoor concert with no tiered seating, which will start at approximately 9pm and finish at about 11.45pm. Afterwards our coach will return you to the hotel, arriving at around 2.00am. It will be necessary to walk between the coach drop-off / pick-up points and the concert venue. Your show/event ticket(s) will be given to you by your Newmarket Tour Manager on the day.
