Christmas River Cruises

Christmas Market River Cruises


River cruises are the perfect way to visit a handful of European cities (and countries) in one amazing voyage. At Christmas time, the picturesque cities along Europe’s rivers light up with festive cheer as they set up their classic European Christmas markets!

Sail from port to port and breathe in the Christmas spirit at every stop. World-famous Christmas markets pop up every year in the gorgeous European cities of Budapest, Cologne, Vienna and Strasbourg (to name but a few).

If you love the festive period you’ll fall head over heels for Europe’s extravagant and delightfully Christmassy market towns. You’ll find residents and visitors alike buzzing with excitement at the most wonderful time of the year.
