Christmas Markets River Cruises

Christmas Markets River Cruises

Enjoy a river cruise through the heart of Europe and get into the festive spirit visiting the popular Christmas markets in towns and villages where many traditions began. See the spectacular architecture decorated with Christmas lights and explore tranquil towns and villages which come alive during the festive season.

Relax in the comfort of your floating hotel as you cruise along the Rhine, Danube and Seine rivers visiting some of the best markets in Europe. Visit beautiful Strasbourg on the Rhine, thought of as the ‘Capital of Christmas’ is home to one of the oldest Christmas markets which sets up in front of the Cathedral. The River Main takes you to Nuremberg, a stunning medieval town which has over 200 stalls selling traditional decorations and festive gifts. Cruise along the Danube through the picturesque Wachau Valley to Vienna and perhaps extend your holiday with a stay in Prague, where school choirs spread the festive cheer. You can also experience the magic of Christmas in Paris before cruising along the River Seine.

Please note, the Christmas Markets usually run from the end of November and stop a few days before Christmas.
