Staying at the modern Hotel Belle Vue
7 DAYS | 22nd September 2019
Sandwiched between France, Belgium and Germany, The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the smallest independent states in the world and is one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Characterised by lush green forests and winding deep valleys, Luxembourg boasts a unique and fascinating culture. Beautifully preserved towns stand beside ancient castles, each corner of the country holds a picturesque surprise for the visitor.
Our base for this tour is Vianden, known as ‘the Pearl’ of the Grand Duchy. A Medieval town famous for its town wall, castle, Tinitarien Church and cloisters, the Victor Hugo museum. We will stay at the modern Hotel Belle Vue; located in the centre of Vianden it has a sunny terrace, and a delightful dining room and bar. The hotel also benefits from access to an indoor swimming pool and a sauna. All bedrooms are en-suite with a TV and a safety deposit box.
We depart Macclesfield in the morning calling for coffee en-route to Hull. There will be free time in the city for lunch and perhaps a stroll along the river front or visit one of the museums. Late afternoon we board P&O luxury cruise ferry for the overnight crossing to Zebrugge. Each cabin on board has en-suite facilities. Whilst on board relax and enjoy a meal, then why not watch the latest movie or some live entertainment.
We dock in Zebrugge around 8.30a.m. and set off on our journey to Luxembourg. En-route we visit the famous Guy Delfourge perfumery in Namur, we then have free time in the city for lunch. We then continue on to D’Annevoie Gardens and its stylish garden. Mid-afternoon we continue on to hotel.
After breakfast we head for the city of Luxembourg where we meet our guide for a tour of the city. You will have free time for lunch and a little shopping before returning to our hotel.
A day at leisure in Vianden. Why not take the chair lift to the castle, take a stroll along the river or perhaps sit on the hotel terrace and watch the world go by?
