Christmas time is on its way and tic would like to invite you on an afternoon trip to enjoy one of the largest Christmas Markets the Netherlands. We will go by train to the Christmas market in the beautiful, historical city center of Dordrecht.
“Dordrecht’s Christmas market, with its 200 stalls, is the largest in The Netherlands and is known for its cozy atmosphere. The stalls have an extensive offer of attractive Christmas gifts which, accompanied by various delicious hot treats, live entertainment and a magnificent ice-skating-rink, leads to the perfect Christmas experience in the city centre of Dordrecht. The Christmas market has a route of 2.5km and leads you through the beautiful historic city centre and inland harbours. Points of interest are the medieval Minster, with an actual winter garden, the authentic Groenmarkt and Holland’s longest shopping street; the Voorstraat.”
Our train which leaves at 11:19 from Tilburg station will bring us to Dordrecht at 12:02. After walking together awhile we will stop to enjoy lunch at the market around 13:30. You are welcome to browse the market with us or end up taking off on your own. As you take care of your own train ticket you have the freedom to stay as long or as short as as you like. The market lasts until 9:00 pm and is charming in the evening with the twinkling lights.
We hope to see you there!
