Magical Christmas Markets on the Rhine

With garlands, glitter and gingerbread, music, mulled wine and a magical air, this tour cruises to Christmas markets along the Rhine, from the cobblestone streets of Rüdesheim to the cathedral of Mainz, and the charismatic city of Strasbourg

Cruise into the Christmas spirit aboard the elegant and informal MS Beethoven, with a programme of festive entertainment, and panorama windows to sightsee as you sail. Focused on the fabulous tradition of Christmas Markets, and including intriguing museums and majestic monuments, the route runs between the super-scenic banks of the Rhine Valley, where the river creates its own legend of the water nymph, Lorelei; before mooring in medieval Rüdesheim, where half-timbered houses line characterful streets, and the town’s Christmas market boasts Germany’s largest nativity scene. Seasonal lights add sparkle to Mainz, its market renowned for a super-sized wooden carousel; and Strasbourg excels itself during the festive season with one of the oldest markets in Europe, a hub of colour and Christmassy goods, set on Grande Île river island and filling the stately Place Broglie with an effervescent atmosphere.
