Do You Want To Step Back In Time?

Once October ends Christmas decorations fill the aisles of all of the stores. The malls have Christmas music playing and their Christmas tree all lit before Thanksgiving and the holiday season frenzy begins!Rue Merciere During Christmas Illumination in Strasbourg

What do you think about stepping back in time and visiting the European Christmas Markets on a river cruise? The cruises begin in the middle of November and run up to Christmas. The towns and villages are all lit up and decorated. The booths at the markets are filled with crafts and handmade ornaments. There is lots of local food, pastries and “gluhwein” (hot mulled wine) to enjoy.  Christmas music is playing and there are plenty of tourist, but also the residents of the towns love to visit the markets and celebrate their tradition with family and friends. Taking this whole scene in is a joy for the senses and an unforgettable way to start your holiday season off.

There are plenty of river cruise lines and itineraries to choose from. Avalon Waterways offer cruises as long as 16 days and one as short as five days. Uniworld Boutique River Cruises include guided walking tours in the cities that they visit. Scenic Cruises will take their guests to an exclusive concert in Vienna. There are many options to allow you to visit the beautiful Christmas markets in such cities as Strasbourg, Vienna, Prague and Frankfurt. Each one is unique and special in its own way.Depositphotos_26888311_l
