Dates (4 days) 06.12.2024 - 09.12.2024 from/to Luxembourg, other airports upon request
Number of travellers 10-15 participants

Experience an unforgettable short trip to the magical city of Krakow. In December, when Christmas scents fill the air and the streets are lit up with a warm glow, the Polish cultural capital is particularly charming. The narrow streets of the old town are adorned with lights and Christmas decorations, the traditional restaurants appear even cozier than usual and the anticipation of the festive season can be felt everywhere.

Thanks to the centrally located ****boutique hotel, you can explore the historic city center and the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz on foot. We have organised transport for the visit to the historic Wieliczka Salt Mine (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the optional excursion to Zakopane and the airport transfers.

Guided trip in German.
