Itinerary

Day 1- Journey to Germany 

We catch the ferry to Calais and continue to our hotel in Germany, stopping en route for an evening meal (not included).

Day 2 - Bonn & Cologne Christmas Markets

Today we travel to the Bonn Christmas Market, a festive hive of tasty food and spectacular gifts surrounded by the city’s Bottlerplatz and historic Minster. The ideal place to find that unique gift, the market offers an array of delightful hand-crafted treasures, including jewellery, ornaments, and knitwear. We then move on to Cologne Christmas Market to indulge in the special festive atmosphere, while enjoying roasted chestnuts and mulled wine and admiring the sparkle of Cologne’s beautiful lights and stunning cathedral. We have time for dinner at a restaurant of your choice before returning to the hotel (not included).

Day 3 – Aachen and Düsseldorf Christmas Markets

En route to Düsseldorf, we spend time in Aachen, a beautiful old city bordering Belgium and the Netherlands. This unique location is reflected in the impressive mixture of goods for sale at the Christmas market, including delicious French and Belgian foods as well as traditional German-made products. We then head to the Düsseldorf Christmas Markets, where we have time to enjoy the festivities with a scrumptious cup of glühwein in hand. We explore the Old Town quarters, adorned with rows of traditionally decorated huts and stalls offering a charming selection of unique handcrafted gifts. Later, there’s time for dinner at a restaurant of your choice before returning to the hotel (not included).

Day 4 – Journey home

We check out of our hotel and head back to Calais for our return ferry home.

Generally, they offer a greater range of facilities and services, and bedrooms tend to be a little more spacious with additional features. Public areas are larger and include lounge seating, bar and restaurant with good quality food served either buffet style or waiter service.
