There’s nothing like a European Christmas Market, and on this getaway we visit three of them! Expect storybook wooden chalets, sparkling lights and a whole host of festive treats in pretty Maastricht and charming Cologne, combined with a treasure trove of stalls in Valkenburg, where the market winds its way through the village’s atmospheric underground caves! The unique photo ops continue with a visit to Vaalserberg, where Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands meet.

Three Countries - Carousel

Maastricht

Maastricht

Lying close to the border of Belgium and known as the birthplace of the Euro, the city of Maastricht is the capital of Holland’s southernmost region, Limburg. It is one of the country’s oldest cities, reflected in the historic centre of ancient churches, city walls, monumental merchant houses and charming squares. Maastricht is a delight to explore all year round, but it comes alive during the festive period. The annual Christmas Market provides plenty of Christmas cheer, where the bustling squares are filled with delightful stalls selling gifts and delicious locally-made treats.

Cologne

Cologne

Cologne is the fourth largest city in Germany, situated on the picturesque landscape of the Rhine River and is known for being a media, tourism and business hotspot with various attractions to be enjoyed on our coach breaks from its gothic architecture to their brilliant Lights Festival & Christmas Markets.

Valkenburg

Valkenburg

Nestled in the Dutch province of Limburg, the village of Valkenburg is famous for its ancient castle ruins and atmospheric caves, where the Romans mined marl 2,000 years ago. Museum Valkenburg tells the story of the area, housed in the old town hall, and there are plenty of cosy restaurants and bars plus riverside walks to enjoy.

Valkenburg offers the perfect place to simply sit and watch the world go by with a warming drink and a piece of vlaai, a delicious local treat! Although it’s a lovely destination all year round, the village is beautiful at Christmastime, when cosy chalets and multi-coloured lights create a unique market both above ground and in the caves!
