Ostend and the Bruges and Valkenburg Christmas Markets
Get into the festive spirit with included visits to two of
Europe's finest Christmas Markets in Belgium and Holland...
This selection of two fantastic European Christmas Markets is always one of our most popular festive short breaks. Our first included excursion is to beautiful Bruges where the Christmas markets illuminate the grand squares and historical buildings. You’ll also have time to wander around the romantic cobbled streets and alongside the pretty canals and visit some of the many chocolate shops in the Old Town.
On day three we visit Valkenburg at the ‘Crossroads of Europe’ for its unique Christmas markets. Wind your way amongst the Christmas stalls in the caves underneath the town and visit the romantic ruined castle at its centre.
Ostend is a fantastic place to spend your evenings. Around the compact city centre there are plenty of restaurants and bars selling excellent Belgian beer. During the day you can wander along the promenade (or the beach if you’re brave!), shop and maybe take to the ice on the famous ice rink built on the main square.
You will stay three nights at the Albert II, or similar. This central hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops and a selection of bars can easily be found. All hotels have en-suite bedrooms, bar and restaurant where continental breakfast is served.
