Tour Itinerary

Monday: Departing the South West we make our way to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing to France and on, by way of the continental motorways to the attractive town of Valkenburg in Holland.

Tuesday: First a visit to Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, with its large squares, cathedral and one of Holland’s oldest bars. We later travel to the white village of Thorn. Once a miniature principality, nowadays Thorn attracts visitors with the allure of its cobbled streets, beautiful church and characteristic white houses.

Wednesday: After breakfast we travel to Vaals and the highest point of the Netherlands where the borders of The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium all meet at the ‘Drielandenpunt’.  After wonderful views the scenic journey continues to Monschau, set in the Eifel Mountain region of Germany is an idyllic town of narrow steep-roofed, half-timbered houses and inns clustered along the banks of the River Rur.  This area is well known for being a photographers’ paradise and is certainly a good example of ‘Picturebook Germany’.

Thursday:  A day at leisure to explore Valkenburg.  There is plenty to do in this vibrant town which boasts a castle, museums, caves, a casino and many cafes and bars. 

Friday: After fond memories we depart Valkenburg and retrace our steps home where we include an enroute visit to the pretty town of Bruges.  Arriving back in the local area late evening
