Written by Susan Dilworth, Editor at Large Europe for WORLD BRIDE MAGAZINE
This historical 15th Century Castle was bought by the Bilderberg Hotel Chain in 2007. It was the seat of the Lords of Vaals and to this day, even after lush modernization, the “Aire” of Royalty still reigns in its halls.
Speaking to Director Gunnar Soureen, he describes his personal Wedding and Honeymoon setbacks versus the features and services that you will encounter at the modern, multifunctional Kastel Vaalsbrock. “Of course, we can accommodate Wedding Ceremonies from 20 – 2000 people. Our services match 3-star to 5-star budgets but the highlight of celebrating your Special Day here at Vaalsbrock; is absolute privacy. I had to cut my Wedding short due to sound limitations but here your celebration will not be interrupted and you and your guest can dance till dawn.“
But back your Honeymooning, Kastel Vaalsbrock offers 24 acres of beautiful landscape, perfect for long romantic walks, relaxing at the banks of the estate lake or just enjoying the view from the balcony of your room. Speaking of balconies; this is where you can enjoy your romantic breakfast, lunch and dinner every day if you like. The Honeymoon Suite is filled with ambience for the two of you but the “action” happens outside of your room. Begin your day by booking your “couples massage” for the evening then head out to explore the Tri-Border Area from the Dutch side. Maastricht is an inviting city with loads of Art Galleries, excellent Shopping and mutli-cultural Restaurants. Professed to be the oldest city in The Netherlands, Maastricht is world renowned for its lovely cathedrals and a spectacularly cobblestoned town centre.
Or perhaps do a border crossing to see Germany? No problem, just follow the road towards the throbbing metropolitan cities of Düsseldorf or Cologne. Just don’t forget your passport. Düsseldorf is crowned the “Saks 5th Avenue” of Germany with its exclusive shopping. On the world-renowned “Kö” street you find deluxe boutiques like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Gucci and & Co. But also stop by and see Cologne while you are there and climb the stairs to “a kiss in the sky” in one of the twin towers of the famous Cologne Cathedral. Cologne gives you modern and history in a comfortable mix. The “Kölner Froh-Natur” which means “Cologne Fun-Nature” is contagious and the people greet their visitors with warmth and a cold “Kölsch” bier.
Feel like more adventure or a longer road trip? A drive up to Amsterdam, it is only two hours away. You could cross the border to Belgium and visit Brussels or even a day trip Paris is do-able (You will love Euro-Disney!).
But don´t forget your couples massage and let your Prince lead you safely back to your “Castle of Love”.
Kastel Vaalsbrock is enticing for couples who love nature, the mystery of Castle Life and fun day trips full of Excursions and Sightseeing Highlights in 3 Countries! This is a Unique Mix for a treasured unforgettable Honeymoon in Europe.
