Winter is such a magical time of year, with snowfall, fun with loved ones, and new discoveries in the New Year. Discover the many trinkets, traditional foods and handcrafted items at the yuletide markets on a Christmas market cruise to Germany or Vienna – full of splendour and festive charm. Or perhaps a river cruises over Christmas or the New Year, with like-minded people and festive food along the way.
You could also escape to a warmer country for some winter sun. February is a great time to get away from the biting cold at home and venture to a more exotic climate, like Egypt, for a luxurious. The days are bright and sunny, but the temperatures haven’t yet reached their peak, meaning you can comfortably explore the many temples and ancient sights on offer.
Go on a Christmas market cruise on the Rhine or Danube and you won’t just return home with unique tree decorations and handcrafted gifts. German Christmas holidays and Yuletide breaks in Europe are magical experiences as towns and cities are transformed into winter wonderlands, adorned with sparkling fairy lights and draped with festive trimmings. A Christmas market cruise creates truly seasonal memories that last for years to come.
