Our most popular breaks:
A Christmas Markets short break is becoming a must-do festive trip. It is a great opportunity to buy a unique Christmas gift and get into the Christmas spirit at the same time!
The small wooden huts, lovingly handcrafted gifts and lashings of mulled wine and festive treats are a popular fixture amongst the towns and cities of Europe and offer a great mid-winter getaway.
Gold Crest Holidays offer an extensive selection of short breaks visiting a variety of diverse Christmas markets across Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France and Germany. We have so many experiences to offer; the mini-city of stalls that illuminates the Place Saint Catherine of Brussels, the numerous markets of Cologne or the traditional Germanic markets of the Rhine Valley are just a selection. After purchasing a bounty of unique Christmas gifts and warming yourself with mulled wine, you will have time to explore some of the great destinations on offer. There is the impressive fortifications of Luxembourg City, the pretty canals of Bruges and the fascinating caves of Valkenburg.
We have three excellent new choices for 2014. Combine the historical sights of Normandy and the Christmas markets, explore the stunning Christmas wonderland of the Chateau Vaux le Vicomte, and the vibrant markets of Maastricht and Liege at the ‘Crossroads of Europe’.
These must-visit destinations and our great-value prices give you the perfect reason to get away from England for a few days during the long winter months!
