Throughout your Danube cruise, delight in the combination of pageantry and timeless traditions at the magical Christmas markets.

Along the beautiful, undulating valleys of the Rhine, Germany holds some stunning towns which embrace the spirit of Christmas with an abundance of tradition. Originating in Germany and dating back to the late middle ages, Christmas markets, or Christkindlmarkt as they are also known, have in recent years become popular throughout Europe.

From the delicious mulled wine and roasting chestnuts, along with a backdrop of festive sounds and twinkling lights ensure the air is filled with delightful Christmas-time cheer. These festive markets include the obligatory huge Christmas tree, lit up with its twinkling lights, along with a Nativity scene and festive singing and dancing. Full of festive charm, these markets are truly a joyful treat for all the senses.

One of the best ways to visit several holiday markets on one trip is to take a river cruise from November and early December offer the opportunity to embark on your very own Christmas-time River cruise to explore the Christmas markets of Europe with our specially tailored itineraries.
