Day 1Fly to Amsterdam, meet your tour manager and transfer to your chosen hotel. After arrival, you will have the evening free to relax.
Day 2Today we'll head to beautiful, historic Maastricht. Leaving the hotel at around midday, we will arrive in André's hometown with plenty of time to spare before this evening's concert. Stroll the delightful, pedestrianised cobbled streets around Vrijthof Square, where you'll find Maastricht's Christmas Market, or simply relax in one of the city's attractive cafes and bars. In the early evening, our coach will transfer you to the MECC for the highlight of your break – André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra in concert. The Centre will be transformed for the concert, becoming a magnificent Winter Palace with chandeliers, Christmas trees, ice skaters, dancers, performers in traditional costumes and a Christmas market. Take in the stunning spectacle, and enjoy wonderful music from André's repertoire of waltzes, classics, operatic themes and music from well-loved films and musicals. You can expect some beautiful Christmas carols, too! After this not-to-be-missed experience, our coach will return you to your hotel.
Day 3After a relaxed morning, today, you'll cross the border into Germany for a visit to Aachen. Here you'll discover one of Germany’s oldest and most traditional markets, laid out in the streets and squares around the city's cathedral and town hall. Keep warm with a mug of glühwein, and treat yourself to the traditional festive flavours of gingerbread and marzipan bread as you wander the bustling market stalls.
Day 4Transfer back to the airport to board your flight home, taking with you a host of memories of a very special Christmas concert break in André Rieu's hometown. Back to top

Travelling to EuropeRules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though. Names - It is very important that all passenger names are exactly as per your passport although we do not require middle names. Passport - Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be: Less than 10 years old on the day you return home (please check the "date of issue") and valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home (please check the "expiry date"). These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay. Visa - If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total. European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS) - Commencing in 2023, all citizens of the United Kingdom will require a ETIAS electronic form completed prior to their arrival into the EU and Schengen member countries. The cost for this travel authorisation will be €7.00 per person with exceptions for under 18’s and over 70’s. The latest information and further details can be found at www.etias.com. Border Control - At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required. Healthcare Cover - You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information. You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
