Experience the deep-rooted holiday traditions of Europe at its most festive time of year. You can choose to travel from Amsterdam and enjoy Switzerland after your cruise, or stay in Switzerland first and cruise northwards along the river.
Get caught up in the magic with visits to some of Europe's timeless Christmas Markets. Warm up with a mug of steamy glühwein while at the market located in front of Cologne's UNESCO-designated gothic cathedral. Let Strasbourg's 'Capital of Noël', the oldest and largest Christmas Market in France, captivate you the way it has for centuries. Meander through Heidelberg’s majestic Christmas Market nestled idyllically amongst the historic squares of the Old Town. And while in Gengenbach, marvel at the world’s largest advent calendar, where every evening the brightly lit windows of the neo-classical town hall open and behind each one is a picture by a famous artist. Cherish all the glory of the season in grand European style as you cruise along the Rhine.
