Hop Across the Channel with DFDS

Hop Acroos the Channel with DFDS

Leaving summer behind needn't fill you with dread. A hop across the Channel to the Continent can bring warm temperatures, fewer crowds and lower prices, all just a short-haul ferry crossing away. Making the journey simple and affordable, DFDS is offering return crossings from Dover to Calais or Dunkirk this Autumn from just £35 on bookings made from now until 10th December 2017.

To inspire those wanting to explore what Europe has to offer during this vibrantly coloured season, DFDS has compiled a selection of driving itineraries, from day trips to short breaks.

France in a day

The Northern regions of France boast some of the country's most fascinating towns and landscapes, with history dating back to the Roman invasion.

A costal crusade along the Opal Coast offers 120km of coastline featuring pine forests, beautiful greenery and rich expanses of farmland – perfect for hiking to catch some of the best views across the Channel. Head to Boulogne for some fine dining in one of 200 restaurants and for a taste of medieval architecture and take a look at the Basilica of Notre-Dame. Following that, a short drive along the coast takes you to 1920s glamour in the seaside resort of Le Touquet – known for featuring in Ian Fleming's novel Casino Royale.

Return, same-day crossing start from £35 for a car with up to nine passengers.

Three day trips to France or Belgium

Spend a little longer across the Channel and discover France's historical heritage and striking architecture in the medieval town of Lille, or the amazing natural landscapes, World War II sites and eponymous Bayeux tapestry in Normandy.

Across the border into Belgium and the UNESCO World Heritage listed city of Bruges is charming as ever, with cobbled lanes, elegant squares, atmospheric churches and romantic canals to explore. Markets and boutique shops sell everything from beer to lace – not forgetting the ever-famous Belgian chocolate!

Return, three-day trips start from £59 for a car with up to nine passengers.

Five day trips to France, Belgium, Luxembourg or Germany

A longer stay gives you the ultimate freedom to explore more of Europe on a short break with the choice to venture south to the heartlands of France, North into Belgium, or West into Germany's famous Rhine and Moselle valleys.

The Champagne Route Tour gives travellers the ultimate champagne and wine tasting experience. From Reims – the jewel in the crown of the Champagne region and home to some of the most famous champagne producers – drive on through vineyard-clad hills to Epernay, home of G.H. Mumm before continuing to Troyes, which is a medieval treasure trove. Watch the grapes being harvested and pressed, or the champagne being blended as you explore this beautiful region's scenery and world-class French cuisine.

In Belgium, Brussels is home to over 40 museums, with a diverse range of culture from fine art to the Belgian Comic Strip Centre, which tells the story of Tin Tin! The spectacular Grand Place is a must-see, and the town square is packed with beautiful Flemish architecture.

Though small, Luxembourg is packed with fairy-tale charm. Located just 139 miles south of Brussels, The Old Town of Luxembourg City is UNESCO-listed for its beauty, and the Wenzel Walk gives you the perfect chance to see it all.

Further east in Germany, the Rhine and Moselle Valleys are among the country's most naturally beautiful regions with lush countryside and vineyards producing some of Germany's best wine. Head to Koblenz first, where the Rhine and Moselle meet, and enjoy stunning views across both valleys. The winemaking town of Rudesheim am Rhein is only a short drive away and part of the Rhine Gorge UNESCO World Heritage site. Finish your road trip in Mainz, the capital of the Rhineland-Palatinate, which is filled with history and is even the home to the first ever printed Bible, in the city's famous Gutenberg Museum – a bookworm's haven.

Return, five-day trips start from £69 for a car with up to nine passengers.

DFDS offers up to 56 daily sailings on its Dover to Dunkirk and Dover to Calais ferry services. The ships café's serving hot and cold drinks plus light snacks; a self-service restaurant offering hot and cold meals; a shop with up to 20% off high-street prices on fragrances, skin care and cosmetics, plus a range of travel essentials and duty-paid goods; and a Kidz Club children's play area that provides entertainment and activities for children during the holiday period.

Each year in the run-up to Christmas, former mining strongholds such as Freiberg, Seiffen and Annaberg host spectacular miners' parades and the region's famous wooden Christmas decorations were once produced by miners to adorn their own homes.


Discover Saxony for the Ultimate Christmas

Nutcrackers fashioned to look like miners in their traditional clothing, wooden pyramids, candle arches or wooden angels are to this day expertly manufactured by hand. Visitors from all over Germany and indeed beyond travel to the region to buy their Christmas decoration in special shops or visit dedicated museums, detailing the Ore Mountains unique handicraft tradition.

For a special festive trip, the sight of gigantic wooden pyramids on village market squares, witnessing miners' parades or simply seeing all the bright lights illuminating even the smallest towns are hard to beat.

Baroque treasure Moritzburg Castle, for instance, turns into a veritable fairytale castle with a special Christmas exhibition on the film “Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella” which is a staple on German TV at Christmas and was shot in the castle, while Wackerbarth Castle, also a famous vineyard near Dresden, puts on a “Saxon Christmas” (16th and 17th December 2017), featuring traditional handicrafts and independent producers as well as fine wines and culinary delights.

Let's not forget – the crowd-pleasers!

Be enchanted in Saxony's palaces and castles

Apart from the famous “Dresden Striezelmarkt”, Germany's oldest, and Leipzig's beautiful Christmas market, both favourites with international visitors, there are many more wonderful Christmas markets all over the region. Exploring those has become much easier with the “Christmas Wonderland Saxony” app by Saxony Tourism, providing information about over 50 Christmas markets, selected seasonal events and specific Saxon Christmas traditions.

The app, available in English, German and Italian, allows searching by date, location or region as well as creating a list of favourites including a corresponding route plan and can be downloaded from
Google's play store and the App store.

So, get planning and should you travel after 9 December, there's a new ICE high-speed rail link which will considerably cut down travel times to Leipzig from major airports such as Munich or Nuremberg.
