Our new Christmas combination begins with Keukenhof Castle, which hosts one of Holland’s most popular Christmas markets and Amsterdam for its Festival of Light illuminations.
On day two we visit the traditional Christmas market at Keukenhof Castle, which is transformed into a Winter Wonderland during this short period. A great choice of stalls offering themed gifts for the whole family, seasonal delicacies and drinks. An ice rink, circus and storytellers will all add to the enjoyment.
On day three you have a full day to explore cosmopolitan Amsterdam with its tree-lined canals and gabled houses along with ample time for shopping and relaxation. Enjoy lunch or a drink at one of the many canal side cafes and restaurants before night falls and the lights illuminate the ‘Boulevard of Light’ which transform the buildings and bridges alongside the Amstel River into breathtaking light sculptures.
