Experience and savour the festive traditions on the Continent as we visit the Netherlands and Germany, and even enjoy a visit to the Three-Country Point in Vaalserberg where these two countries meet Belgium. The unique range of Christmas Markets we visit include stalls bursting with traditional and contemporary crafts and local specialities. Plus a secret treasure trove of Christmas stalls squirreled into subterranean Valkenburg – a unique cave of wonders not to be missed and an enchanting way to take in the yuletide atmosphere.
