Our base is the lively Dutch town of valkenburg, experience the festive excitement of the Christmas market in the town cave (Gemeentegrot), the oldest and largest Christmas market in Europe. You may also wish to visit the Christmas market in the velvet Cave. Cologne’s cathedral makes a stunning backdrop for the city’s romantic market with its wooden pavilions, puppet theatres and huge Christmas tree.
