Classic Christmas Markets (2017) : River Queen

8 Days From Frankfurt To Nuremberg


Immerse yourself in holiday magic on a cruise through Germany's fairytale scenery.

Europe's wonderful Christmas Markets have been a much-loved tradition for many centuries, and their festive bonhomie and magical charm continue to endure. Observe traditional artisans as they carve old-fashioned toys and wooden ornaments, and bakers as they roll out giant gingerbread hearts and decadent once-a-year confections. Inhale the scent of cinnamon and roasted sausages and nuts as you stroll amongst colorfully decorated market stalls, searching for unique treasures while sipping a steaming mug of gluhwein (warm spiced wine). There's no better place to embrace the holiday spirit than in Germany, the land where many Christmas traditions began.
