DAY 1 - From your chosen joining point your feeder vehicle will take you to your designated interchange point where your holiday begins. After joining your holiday coach, we make our way to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. We then drive through France and Belgium and onto our hotel in Valkenburg, Holland for our 3 night stay with breakfast & dinner.
DAYS 2 & 3 - At leisure in Valkenburg with one INCLUDED excursion.
Visit the town centre where you have ample time to explore the shops and the Christmas Market. Valkenburg's Christmas Market is spectacularly held in the Town Cave and the Fluweelengrot (Velvet Cave). An entrance fee is applicable for both caves. Twinkling lights and magic illuminations reflect off the walls and soft Christmas music gently disturbs the serene silence more typical of these surroundings. You will see caverns, decorated niches, stalls with various Christmas items for sale and stalls demonstrating old Dutch trades and handicrafts.
Aachen Christmas Market
Aachen's brightly lit Christmas market is set around the cathedral and town hall. This lovingly decorated "Christmas village" on the market square has everything your heart could desire. One local speciality you really must try is the Aachen Printen, a kind of gingerbread. Every year before Christmas the squares and streets around the Aachen Town Hall are transformed into a paradise of lights and colours, festive sounds and seductive smells. The glorious fair in the Christmas City, which has been erected with great care and sentiment, fascinates both the young and the old.
LAST DAY - After breakfast, we travel back through Holland, Belgium and France to Calais for our return to England arriving back early to mid evening.
