Explore Europe’s most beautiful Christmas markets, architectural marvels and historic sites in cities including Cologne, Rüdesheim, Nuremberg, Vienna and Budapest, on this enchanting luxury river cruise voyage down the majestic Rhine. Europe at Christmas is magically transformed; from charming villages to great cultural centres, you can look forward to the seasonal hum and buzz as treats and toys, charms and trinkets of every description come out in a joyful, traditional display.

 

Inhale the ambience of Christmas as it has been celebrated in Europe for centuries, with the fragrant aroma of glühwein, roasted chestnuts, and sparkling markets and town squares bursting with festive excitement. Enjoy other cultural sights and experiences—including the canals of Amsterdam and the windmills of Zaanse Schans; a walking tour of charming Düsseldorf or medieval Cologne; authentic village life in picturesque Miltenberg; historic museums in Nuremberg; Vienna’s elegant music and architecture; and the beauty of Budapest.
