Christmas Time River Cruise: A Memorable Experience!

FESTIVE CHRISTMAS MARKET
A couple of years ago, we went on a Christmas Time Cruise on the rivers and canals of Europe. That means we were traveling on a small ship - about 100 passengers - and we were close to the passing wintry scenery or lovely historic cities at all times.

We visited about six different countries and as many Christmas Markets. We toured Medieval castles, imposing palaces, and enormous cathedrals; wandered cobble-stoned streets and sipped mulled wine while snow filtered down from star-filled skies. We enjoyed traditional music, home-baked Christmas treats, and traditional ornaments and decorations. It was magical. I felt like we were living in a Christmas card the entire time!

Every Christmas Market was a little different, but all were festive and fabulous!  If you would like an unforgettable holiday experience; investigate a European Christmas Time River Cruise. Here are some links for further information:

INNsider Tip: Make sure the Christmas Markets are actually OPEN during the time of your cruise and bring layers of warm clothing and boots!
