The Magic of Christmas

9th - 16th December 2016(7 nights)pdfdownload


See the magic of Christmas in Bruges, Valkenburg & Maastricht

There can’t be many settings more beautiful at Christmas time than Bruges, with its cobbled streets, historic buildings and horse drawn carriages plodding by. Beautiful medieval squares lit with colourful lights, pleasant shopping in the magically decorated streets, skating on the ice rink on the Grote Markt, or just enjoy the atmosphere in many of the restaurants and cafes with good food and hot chocolate – and this is just the start of your tour.

 Our next stop will be Valkenburg where we will visit one of the largest and oldest underground Christmas markets in Europe. You will be surprised by the lovely settings and decors, which are in full harmony with the numerous stands offering Christmas gifts and other luxuries. During our stay we will also see the Christmas Parade that takes place in the town at this time of year

 Our final Christmas visit will be to Maastricht, an opportunity for those last minute gifts or wander around using the “light route” which will lead you across town taking in various sights: from the chandeliers on “square 1992”, to the market, and the old Sint-Servaas bridge
