Suggested Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to Valkenburg

Take a short sea crossing to Calais and travel to the Netherlands.  After settling into your room, head down to the restaurant for dinner.

Day 2

Valkenburg

Valkenburg, sometimes called ‘Marlstone Town’ because of the lime found in the soil and the soft yellow marlstone which has, since Roman times, been quarried as building material. As a result, there is now a network of over 150 miles of underground caves beneath the town. A visit to these caves, which are home to the Christmas markets each November and December, is highly recommended. Above ground investigate the castle ruins and many shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.

Day 3

Maastricht sightseeing

The southernmost city in the Netherlands, Maastricht is also known as the ‘Paris of the Benelux’. Enjoy an optional guided walking tour which will show you around the prettiest parts of the old city centre. You will see the Stokstraat Quarter, the Basilica of Our Lady, the Ramparts and the parks plus much more. Perhaps take some time out to explore the network of underground passageways and vaults beneath the city. This is where a large number of the Netherlands’ treasured artworks were safeguarded during World War II.  In the afternoon, we enjoy a sightseeing river cruise for an alternative view of the city.

Day 4

Three Countries, Aachen and the Eiffel Mountains

Enjoy an excursion to the three countries ‘meeting point’, where Belgium, Holland and Germany come together. Continue to Aachen and enjoy some free time exploring the great old town and its cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Moving on, we drive through the stunning scenery of the Eiffel Mountains on our way to the picturesque village of Monschau. We spend some free time exploring this town, famous for its half-timbered buildings overlooked by a medieval castle, before returning to Valkenburg.
