DEPARTURE EXCEPTIONALLY FROM MONTGOMERY OPPOSITE EUROSTARS HOTEL
This afternoon/evening Christmas trip leads us to one of Germany’s most beautiful and picturesque towns. With its well-preserved half-timbered houses and its narrow streets, Monschau is the pearl of the Eifel regio. It just seems to be built for Christmas, and this small city is therefore often ranked among Germany’s most beautiful Christmas towns. With less than 2 hours on the road it is our most popular holiday season destination and we would love to welcome you on board of our coach in 2018.
Transportation by 4* luxury coach with reclining seats

Monschau is known as the Türmacherstadt, the doormaker city, although the main industry was cloth-mills. This medieval town has many picturesque corners, whereas the view from above is just spectacular. All buildings are required to keep their slate-clad roofs in optimal condition, which gives Monschau such a beautiful character. Monschau’s Christmas market is different from all other cities like Cologne and Düsseldorf that “dress up” for Christmas. Monschau simply embodies Christmas. The entire town breathes the atmosphere that the end of the year approaching. You will find many lovely small shops, boutiques, restaurants and galleries. And on top of that come many Christmas Market stalls.
Upon arrival everyone is invited to join us for a fascinating glass blowing demonstration in the Glasshütte. You will be amazed with the craftsmanship of the glassblower, who creates several sculptures in just 45 minutes.
After our visit to the Monschauer Glasshütte you are free to discover the town of Monschau itself. Our relatively late departure means you can get some extra rest on Saturday morning. Our arrival is in the middle of the afternoon, which means that we can immediately experience the Christmas markets in full swing. Also, shortly after it will be getting dark and with the thousands of decorative lights the town will turn into a magical place.
