X'mas Markets Tour-Maastricht, Valkenburg, Aachen & Köln

It is time to plan for a special Christmas experience! This year I want to make it even more special, we will go on a X'mas Market Hopping Tour! Our first stop is a Magical Weekend Christmas Markets Hopping Tour to Southern Limburg in Netherlands Maastricht & Valkenburg and Aachen & Köln (Cologne), Germany!

4 Cities, 4 X'mas Markets, across 3 Countries all in 1 Weekend !!

Valkenburg X'mas Market

The largest and oldest underground Christmas Market in Europe- Cave of Valkenburg aan de Geul. Discover the world of magic. You’ll be surprised by the lovely settings and decors, which are in full harmony with the numerous stands offering Christmas gifts and other luxuries. The spacious and long galleries that are typical for this cave, are very inviting to visitors who want to spend time in a musical setting and a fancy equipped Christmas cave. 

Maastricht X'mas Market

Discover the magic of Maastricht. Follow the Magical Light Route to experience the unique light spectacle of the city. Admire the fantastic chandeliers at the Plein 1992 Square, Market Square, Maasboulevard and Mosae Forum shopping centre, stroll along the Meuse (Maas) river via the magically lit St Servaas bridge or the ‘Hoeg Brögk’. The breath-taking animated light show coming from the 200 mistletoe-shaped lamps on the trees of the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein will create a 
magic moment of reflection.

Aachen X'mas Market

Every year before Christmas the squares and streets round the Cathedral and the Aachen Town Hall are transformed into a paradise of lights and colours, festive sounds and seductive smells. The glorious fair in the Christmas City, which has been erected with great care and sentiment, fascinates both the young and the old. The enormous choice between original, stylish and precious goods makes small and big dreams come true. It is really no wonder why the Aachen Christmas Market has become an absolute "must" for all people of Aachen and Aachen fans as well. 

Köln X'mas The magic of Christmas will be felt throughout the festively decorated city. The aroma of baked apples, cinnamon biscuits and mulled wine will waft through the alleys, and many differently themed Christmas markets will invite people to stroll, shop and explore. The larger Christmas markets are held in downtown Cologne. The booths near Cologne Cathedral are arranged around a huge Christmas tree, next to which is a stage for a diverse programme of live music performances.
