River Cruises to European Christmas Markets

CHRISTMAS MARKET RIVER CRUISES

  2018 & 2019 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.

Mulled Wine, Tasty Food and Handmade Craftwork

Take a walk through the market stalls, where the air runs thick with the unmistakable smell of warm, spiced mulled wine. Treat yourself to the tasty treats on offer while you enjoy the fairy-tale surroundings.

You’ll take home amazing memories and souvenirs from a Christmas river cruise and if you’re lucky, you could even explore a winter wonderland under a blanket of snow!

We’ve selected some of our favourite Christmas river cruises, with stops at the greatest Christmas markets in the world. See them all below – click to view the details of each river cruise and choose which winter wonderland you want to celebrate in.
