We are delighted to offer a 4 day tour to the Christmas markets in Cologne, Brussels and Maastricht  Our base for the 3 nights is in  the central 4 star  Amrath Hotel in Eindhoven, Holland.  Eindhoven is a charming city where the Irish always receive a warm welcome.  Normally the Irish stay in Amsterdam but Eindhoven has a true Dutch atmosphere with not too many tourists.  Looks can be deceiving when it comes to Eindhoven’s history.  Modern as the city is today, it is one of the oldest cities in Holland and has fantastic restaurants and bars.  You will find that virtually everyone can speak good English.


We depart Dublin Airport for our flight to Eindhoven.  On arrival we are met by Frank Mackin our Tour Leader.  Our coach then takes us to the 4 star Amrath Hotel in Eindhoven. where we are based for the next 3 nights.


After breakfast we travel to the ancient city of Maastricht which has one of the best Christmas Markets in Holland.  You will enjoy its cobbled streets  and festive atmosphere.  The city also has two magnificent churches, the Gothic style Sint Janskerk and the Romanesque Basilica of St Servatius.  The main market is in Vrijthof Square and has numerous stalls and a Ferris wheel.  There are also excellent shopping streets and numerous restaurants.  We return to our hotel late afternoon so that you have ample time to enjoy this historic city.


After breakfast we travel to Cologne which has the best Christmas markets in Germany.    Christmas Markets originated in Germany but now most European cities have caught on.  In Cologne they are all situated near the famous Gothic Cathedral and in Frank’s opinion the best one is Hafwenmarkt on the River Rhine near the Chocolate Museum.    We return to our hotel late afternoon.


After breakfast we travel to Brussels the Capital city of Belgium.  The main Christmas market is in the Grand Place and Frank will do a short walking tour to there.  There are hundreds of stall in the centre and numerous restaurants in this historic city.  We then catch our return flight from Brussels back to Dublin.
