Experience two stunning Christmas markets in the Netherlands, followed by time in beautiful Bruges.

Choose two from:



Held in the municipal cave, is said to be the biggest, oldest and most visited underground Christmas market in Europe. Up to 50 shops set up their stalls in the richly decorated galleries and there are plenty of cosy restaurants and cafes where tired shoppers can treat themselves to a delicious mug of hot chocolate.


Set on the banks of the river and boasting streets lined with pretty, half-timbered buildings, Monschau is the perfect setting for a traditional Christmas market.


Nestled between the beautiful cathedral and the historic town hall, Aachen's Christmas market provides a truly festive flavour. The stalls offer everything from unique traditional gifts to stylish luxury items and, of course, plenty of Printenmann gingerbread.


With its tangle of winding, cobbled streets and romantic canals, Bruges is a city to explore on foot. If you have the energy, make time to climb the 366 steps to the top of the Belfry to see the city from above or, alternatively, visit one of the many museums such as Groeningemuseum, famous for its collection of Flemish Primitive and Renaissance works.
