Christmastime in Europe

Enjoy Europe's Christmas Markets & More   2021 & 2022

Christmas Market River Cruises

Europe during the winter is unlike anywhere else, as the gingerbread stalls and row-upon-row of twinkling fairylights welcome the festive period. Visit the home of the Christmas markets, as you celebrate Yuletide as the Germans, Austrians and Hungarians do. Sip glühwein, treat yourself to traditional snacks and shop for unique souvenirs to take home, with the awe-inspiring backdrop of some of the most iconic architecture on the continent. text in field]
