Maastricht is a lively city, perfect for socialising and celebration, and the Christmas market is no different. Vrijthof square is transformed into a magnificent ice rink, and the town’s dazzling lights can easily be seen with a ride on the ferris wheel in the city centre. Visitors will be charmed by Maastricht’s little alleys and picturesque squares – such as the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein square, animated by the lights of 200 mistletoes in the trees.

Valkenburg, a small town near Holland’s border with Germany, offers something truly special for Christmas. In the municipal cave of Valkenburg aan de Geul, situated at the bottom of the well-known Cauberg, sits the largest and oldest underground Christmas Market in Europe. The spectacularly-lit cave is a must-see, its long, spacious, glimmering galleries filled with festive joy. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the town is overtaken by the Christmas Parade, a festival of decorated floats and costumed dancers.
