From our base in Valkenburg, we enjoy a relaxing coach holiday with visits to Amsterdam, the Rhine Valley and Monschau, with their old-world charms. Walk the cobbled streets of Valkenburg, and take a canal-side stroll in Amsterdam, where you can appreciate the capital city’s amazing architecture. See the spectacular spot where the borders of Germany, Holland and Belgium meet at Drielandenpunt and enjoy time in the German town of Aachen. Why not also join us on a trip to charming town of Monschau, tucked into the Eifel mountain range landscape, or for a full-day excursion to the Rhine Valley, as we visit the lovely towns of Boppard and Alken and pass fairy tale castles and picturesque villages. With so much to experience on this fully escorted tour, you’ll return with magical memories from Holland.
Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to Valkenburg for a six-night stay.
We have a day at leisure to relax and explore Valkenburg’s quaint cobbled streets and pretty buildings. Situated at the crossroads of three countries, Valkenburg has long been a favourite destination on account of its exuberance and extremely varied appeal. Valkenburg, or the 'Marlstone Town' as it is known locally, is famous for its castle and the elaborate system of Roman caves and tunnels that run beneath the town. Explore the quaint cobbled streets and beautiful buildings of this enchanting fortified town, or alternatively relax with a glass of the local white beer.
