private experience

Visit Cologne during the most festive time of the year and explore the most beautifully decorated Christmas markets. This cathedral city is fairly close to the Dutch border and is excellent for a day trip from the Netherlands.

Tour Description

No need to hassle with expensive trains and transfers to visit the German Christmas Markets for a day; just let your guide pick you up from any address southeast of Amsterdam. Watch the Dutch, flat-as-a-pancake landscape pass by, as your guide shares all sorts of interesting information about the Netherlands and Germany with you.

Upon arrival in Cologne, set off on a walking tour exclusive for your own party, passing by several Christmas markets. After the walking you have personal time to explore the cathedral, to visit the markets, to shop, or to visit museums.

Meet with your guide again to bring a visit to a traditional Kölsch brewery. Indulge yourself in the culture of Cologne and taste local Kölsch beer. Then it's time for the transfer back to the Netherlands, where you are dropped off around 8:00 pm.

If preferred, your guide is happy to explore the city with you in your personal time!
