This year we are pleased to offer a tour which visits Aachen, explores Monschau and includes a spectacular concert from the King of Waltz himself – André Rieu. We have the highest category tickets and it promises to be an evening which will create memories for a lifetime!
Day 1 We have an early start by taxi, and then by coach we make our way to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel to Calais. We continue through France and Belgium and into Germany, reaching Aachen and our hotel in time for dinner.
Day 2 This morning we enjoy a guided walking tour of Aachen, with its old town houses, historic palaces, beautiful cathedral and pleasant squares. In the afternoon we make our way to Cologne for an early restaurant dinner. Tonight we have the highlight of the tour as André Rieu and his orchestra take to the stage at the Lanxess Arena.
Day 3 After a leisurely breakfast, we visit Monschau, nestled in the rugged Eifel landscape. We have a guided walking tour with a local guide followed by free time to explore this beautiful historic city. Stroll through the narrow winding streets bordered with half-timbered façades before visiting the Roman Glassworks where we discover the ancient craft of glassblowing. We return to our hotel for dinner.
Day 4 After breakfast, we travel back to Calais, with suitable refreshment stops, for our Eurotunnel to Folkestone. We continue to the local area to meet our taxis arriving home late evening.
