If you adore nostalgic Christmas markets, you’ll be thrilled that we’ve got three of the best yuletide extravaganzas wrapped up in one big holiday present! Our base is the lively Dutch town of valkenburg where the largest, oldest and most visited underground Christmas market in Europe is staged in the atmospheric and ancient Gemeentegrot and velvet caves. Admire the beautiful setting and discover the murals, sculptures and eighteenth century chapel as you browse the decorated stalls in the spacious galleries. Cologne’s cathedral makes a magnifient backdrop for the city’s romantic market with its wooden pavilions, puppet theatres and soaring Christmas tree. Finally, Antwerp offers a wonderful advent experience where you can sip Gluhwein, listen to festive music and shop for original gifts. Staying at the Hotel Walram, close to the centre of Valkenburg.
