    Has any one been to Valkenburg in Holland for the Christmas market or stayed at Camping den Driesch? Any comments welcome :)

    Stayed there a few years ago over Christmas. I remember that the pitches were a bit tight to get into due to low trees. The markets are in the caves which is different.
    Having done it I would say that it's a long journey to see the same Cristmas tat that you can see at your local garden centre. Don't let me put you off going though.:)

    Yes. No. Yes.

    Great place when the sun shines and you can sit in the town dining in the open air, people watching. Take the cable car and do the toboggan run.

    Can't imagine why you would go to get cold and ripped off.

    you already stated that in your thread which was purely dedicated to the fact how bad your thoughts are about the Netherlands

    Only saying what I'd do, who takes any notice of me:doh: But seriously can't see the need to go up there with all the markets they have in France , cheaper , closer and probably just the same old tat:RollEyes:
    Edit
    But saying that , not Christmas but new year, no better place to be than Amsterdam
