Christmas Market Caves

of Valkenburg & Aachen Christmas Market

This trip is an absolute must for Christmas Market connoisseurs! Valkenburg offers the most incredibly unique Christmas Market experience by hosting the entire market in the naturally formed caves that run underneath the town. Making use of the extensive cave system that underlies the area, the “Valkenburg Caves” provide a one of a kind experience not found at any other Christmas Market. Traditional Dutch Christmas treats, artisan wares, holiday crafts and Christmas exhibits line the decorated caves to create an underground Christmas village that glows with holiday spirit.

After kicking our holiday spirit into high gear, we travel back across the border into Germany to the charming city of Aachen, also referred to as the city of wells and fountains. Here, we will visit the towns sweetest spot, the Lambertz Printen & Chocolate outlet, famous for Aachener gingerbread.   Just a few minutes away, the Lindt Chocolate Center and their delectable chocolate covered delights are waiting to sweeten your holiday season and the seasonal package of goodies you send home to your loved ones.

During the weeks leading up to the holidays, the heart of Aachen becomes one of the most picturesque and enchanting Christmas Market destinations in all of Germany. Our time here begins with a short walk to the city center where you can independently explore the exciting history and stunning sites such as the cathedral that has looked over the residents for over 1000 years. The market place becomes a Christmas wonderland, beckoning shoppers in with the alluring sweet aromas and the warm nostalgic glow twinkling Christmas lights. We invite you to browse this market and the impressive assortment of handmade Christmas decorations, seasonal crafts, pottery and delicious Christmas treats!
