Overview

Nestled within the hills of North Eifel, the romantic half-timbered houses of the medieval town of Monschau straddle the Rur River as they have done for centuries. The charm of this picture postcard town is simply breathtaking and it is here that our comfortable Hotel is based.

Your Holiday Hotel

Roadmark groups have stayed at the Carat Hotel on several previous occasions and we have received consistently good reports. In a quiet location by a pretty stream, and only 300m from the centre of Monschau, the Hotel has 100 bedrooms decorated in warm and cosy colours. The Hotel has a lift. There is a skittle alley and games area, and a bistro style bar with a daily ‘Happy Hour’. The Carat also has an indoor pool and sauna.

Itinerary

(DAY 1) Sunday 17th September

We cross the Channel with Eurotunnel and drive through Belgium, arriving at our destination by the end of the afternoon. Luggage will be taken to your room whilst you enjoy a welcome drink. On each evening dinner will comprise a three-course buffet with tea/coffee included.

(DAY 2) Monday 18th September

After a leisurely breakfast we head for Aachen, the city of Charlemagne and ancient capital of the Frankish Empire. We will be joined by a guide for a walking tour around the main sights, and there will be time to visit Aachen Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in Northern Europe. It houses a number of remarkable treasures, some of which are up to 1200 years old.

(DAY 3) Tuesday 19th September

We spend this morning driving through the picturesque Eifel National Park, enjoying some of the most unspoilt and beautiful countryside in Western Germany. Our journey takes us to the historical spa town of Bad Munstereifel. The town is confined within 13th century walls and is small enough to see everything on a gentle stroll. After time to find lunch and explore this medieval gem we head back to Monschau.

(DAY 4) Wednesday 20th September

No coach excursion today, so that you may spend a full day exploring the narrow cobbled streets, enjoying a long lunch and shopping for souvenirs to take home. Why not take the little Tourist Train, which winds its way around the Town before climbing to the Castle from where there are great views down into the valley below.

(DAY 5) Thursday 21st September

After our final breakfast we will drive to Bruges for a lunch stop, continuing to Calais for a late afternoon train home through the Channel Tunnel. On reaching Sussex, a taxi will take you to your door.
