Did you know that…
  • One of the most outstanding jewels of the city of Kutna Hora are the religious temples which are considered among the best churches in the Czech Republic, therefore, knowing them will be a subject that you can not overlook.

Kutna Hora has a somewhat macabre touch, as it is nothing less than a built and decorated with the bones of 40,000 people who wanted to be buried there.

We continue our super trip for young people and again we will head to Germany . If time permits we will stop in Nuremberg, the city that hosted the trial of the Nazi generals after World War II, known as the Nuremberg Trials. Many books have been written about this process, collecting the statements of those who survived the concentration camps.

After crossing the entire region of Bavaria, we will arrive late in the afternoon in Frankfurt, one of the most important urban centers in Germany, and the financial capital of the country, where the headquarters of the European Bank is located, and where we will spend the night.

Day 14Frankfurt - Cologne - Amsterdam

Good morning! Are your batteries charged? Today in the most complete of Christmas trips to Europe will be a day full of new places to discover.

We continue traveling through Europe to get to know the last German city of the tour: Cologne. We will see the most important places of this city located at the foot of the Rhine River, characterized by its more than 2,000 years of history, its cultural and architectural heritage, and for its world-famous events. We will see and walk around this city, we will visit its Cathedral, which took more than 600 years to build and is one of the most visited monuments. When you see it you’ll know why!

This city is also known for its museums, which house all kinds of art: from the process of making chocolate to works by Picasso and Dalí. In the afternoon we will set off again to reach the free city of Amsterdam.

Upon arrival, we will leave our luggage and go directly to the city’s famous Red Light District in the afternoon and evening. The night is young and life is short, so enjoy friends!

Did you know that…
  • Cologne Cathedral is one of the largest and most spectacular cathedrals in the world.
  • In front of the cathedral, there is a statue that would occupy about three human bodies high and that is exactly the same as the two peaks that rule the two towers of the cathedral. It’s great to see them up close.
  • Inside the cathedral is a curious stained glass window in the form of colored pixels.
  • At Christmas, a Nöel market full of fantasy, lights, stalls, singers, skating rinks and mulled wine bars make the center of Cologne a real fairy tale.

Day 15Amsterdam

Liberal culture and politics have made Amsterdam a world reference for advocates of liberalism, especially those who defend the legalization of light drugs (marijuana and hashish) and the regularization of prostitution.

But Amsterdam is not only the coffee shops and the red light district, there are many canals to get lost in.

Take a walk through the Van Gogh Museum , the Rembrandt Museum, the MOCO or the Rijksmuseum. A visit to Anne Frank’s house is a must , as an extra of the trip. And if you feel like having a beer, we have the answer, Heineken beer is your star choice.

*Optional Activities:
  • Boat trip on the canals of Amsterdam
Did you know that…
  • The facades of the multitude of houses that populate Amsterdam are turned forward. What is said to explain this is that their architects created them thinking that, due to their narrowness, the only way to get furniture into the house could be from the windows. For this reason they have a hook on their roof and are slightly inclined forward from top to bottom, to prevent the furniture from colliding with the façade when it is lifted up.
  • Amsterdam is the most liberal city in the world. Or so they think. It was the first city in the world to accept same-sex marriage, marijuana and prostitution are legal.
  • The Dutch are very tall. Men measure an average of 184 cm and women 170 cm.

Day 16Amsterdam - Bruges - Brussels

Good morning!

Today we will visit one of the most beautiful Flemish cities: Bruges, which is the most visited city in Belgium, ahead of the capital. On the way back we will also stop at the Atomium to take some pictures.

Here you will be delighted to see how well preserved this medieval town is, where the Northern European architectural style has been left intact!

Day 17Brussels - Paris

After getting to know Brussels we will continue our Christmas Wonderland trip.

We get back on our Unitrips bus and head for one of the most awaited destinations, Paris, “The City of Love”. There’s always a reason to visit Paris, whether it’s your first time or your fifteenth. It is a city that throughout history has accumulated such a wealth of artistic and architectural works that you never end up discovering something new. It must be for a reason that it is the capital that receives the most tourists in the world.

We will visit the monumental area, the most famous gothic cathedral in the world, Notre Dame. Unfortunately you will not know it in its best shape, having recently caught fire during its structural renovation.

We will follow the Seine River to see the wonders of this city, visiting the Louvre area, the largest and most famous museum in the world, and after passing by “le jardin des tuileries” we will go to the top of the Eiffel Tower to reach its feet.

Did you know that…
  • The Eiffel Tower is 18 cm higher in summer due to iron expansion.
  • Do you know why Paris is called the City of Light? Because there were many robberies in it, then its mayor had candles put in the windows until gas lamps were placed, being the first city illuminated in this way.
  • There is a so-called “Paris Syndrome” that affects Japanese who arrive in the city and are disappointed when they do not achieve the prospects they expected. There is even a 24-hour hotline for those affected.

Day 18Paris

An intense day in the “Ville Lumiere” awaits us, so wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking to do today. It is the best way to get to know all European cities.

Today you can admire other areas of Paris, such as the Opera or the Lafayette galleries, see if you manage to climb all the steps leading to the basilica running, at the end awaits a breathtaking view of Paris.

In the evening we offer you the opportunity to tour around the center of Paris by bus to enjoy all the most emblematic places, where you can stop to take some pictures while you discover more about the magical city.
