Discover some of Germany's very best Christmas markets and this festive, fun-filled River Cruise! 
  • See the spectacular Cologne Cathedral at Christmas time
  • Visit Bonn, birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven
  • Explore the 130 decorated stalls at the Koblenz Christmas Markets
  • Spend time in Düsseldorf, visiting the magical Christmas Markets 
When it comes to Christmas markets, nowhere does it quite like Germany and the city of Cologne is no exception – in the shadow of its magnificent gothic cathedral, festive stalls spread out into several areas around the city to create one of the best markets in Europe, offering a fantastic range of quality gifts. Koblenz, one of Germany’s oldest cities is transformed into a Christmas paradise, and then there’s Düsseldorf, which opens its “gingerbread houses” to the Christmas markets each year. Our cruise along the river Rhine takes you to all of these wonderful destinations, where you can enjoy the magical atmosphere of the festive markets; and with our ship close by, you can just wander back when you’re ready to relax in the cosy lounge and enjoy a warming drink -  seasonal shopping at its best!
