Rüdesheim, Heidelberg & Aachen Christmas Markets

Suggested Itinerary

Day 1 – Rüdesheim

Board our private executive coach at your designated pick up points – take the cross Channel ferry from your preferred port – continue to Rüdesheim and check in to the family run 4* Traube Aumueller Hotel.

Day 2 – Rüdesheim Christmas Market

Full day at leisure in Rüdesheim to explore the Christmas Market – over 120 festively decorated chalets, representing 12 nations, sell all kinds of gifts from candles and jewellery to wood figures and festive foods, and there is an extensive music performance programme – why not also take a cable car to the Niederwald Monument or take lunch in a local restaurant?

Day 3 – Heidelberg Christmas Market

Guided tour of Heidelberg taking in sights such as the Altstadt, the Castle and the University – rest of the day is free to savour the sights and sounds of the 140 stalls of Heidelberg Christmas Market – the view of the Castle enjoyed over a cup of mulled wine, the festively decorated shops in the city centre and the typical, regional gastronomic offerings across many squares all blend together wonderfully in creating a truly memorable seasonal atmosphere.

Day 4 – Aachen Christmas Market

En route to Calais we visit the Christmas Market at Aachen which is set around the cathedral and the town hall – continue for our Channel crossing back to the UK and then return to our original departure points with comfort stops en route.

There are Christmas Markets throughout Northern Europe. Call us for a costing for your preferred destination.
