Get into the festive spirit exploring Christmas markets in Germany and the Netherlands


The Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Christmas Market Tour across Germany and the Netherlands offers the ultimate Christmas road trip, visiting the magical Christmas markets of Cologne and Aachen in Germany and Valkenburg in the Netherlands.

From just £699* for an outfit and two people, the four-night holiday, from 11 December, provides the ideal opportunity for plenty of last minute shopping as well as sightseeing.

From searching for gifts at the world-famous markets, viewing the incredible Nativity Sand Sculpture in Valkenburg to sampling delicious Christmas treats such as gingerbread and marzipan bread fresh from the oven, there are plenty of opportunities to get in the Christmas spirit.

Day one begins at Camping Vinkenhof, a semi-rural campsite located in the hilly countryside of southern Limburg, in the Netherlands, where tourers can meet their hosts and fellow group over a drink of Christmas Gluhwein and a traditional Dutch snack. The following day there is a coach excursion to Cologne, a city famed for its Gothic architecture, impressive cathedral and views across the River Rhine. Here there is the chance to explore the many Christmas markets with free time to shop and soak up the festive atmosphere.

Other experiences include a trip to the magical market caves of Valkenburg with the chance to watch the town’s famous Christmas parade, and to taste ‘Printen’ a local speciality of Aachen, similar to gingerbread.

The trip includes four nights camping, excursions, several meals and a dedicated tour host to accompany the group. Offering the widest choice of crossings, the Club has negotiated deals with ferry companies and LeShuttle (Eurotunnel)  to help save money, with their ‘lowest price guarantee’. New joiners to the Club this summer will also be able to save 20 per cent on ferry and LeShuttle crossings.

Members of the Caravan and Motorhome Club can also benefit from the Red Pennant emergency assistance to keep them protected when travelling across Europe. This travel insurance has been specifically designed for touring holidays and includes options of motoring or personal insurance for single-trip or annual multi-trip cover. Cover options include European breakdown roadside assistance, vehicle and passenger repatriation, continuation of holiday travel, medical emergency and ski cover. When travelling with one of the Caravan and Motorhome Clubs’ European tours, members can feel at ease with Red Pennant insurance – which even has access to a 24-hour, multi-lingual assistance line.**
