Christmas Markets River Cruises 2019/2020
Get in the Christmas spirit on a festive break - our Christmas Market tours visit Europe’s most magical towns and cities. Experience them on a cruise along the Rhine or Danube, just one of the ways to discover these magnificent rivers this winter.
Each year, festive stalls form a carpet of colour in many of the squares and cobbled streets of towns and cities across Europe, each selling unusual gifts and trinkets that you just can’t resist.
The smell of roast chestnuts and mulled wine wafts by; the sound of Christmas music fills the air; brightly coloured wooden stalls display their wares and everyone’s face is aglow...
