Christmas is celebrated with added gusto on the continent, and nowhere is this more evident than in the hundreds of festive markets and fairs which dot Europe from Hungary to the North Sea coast. From the world-famous Christkindlmarkts of Germany to the enchanting fetes of the Netherlands, this unmissable 16-day journey offers up an array of festive treats, so you can celebrate the season in style. You’ll board your Scenic Space-Ship in Amsterdam, before venturing south-east into Germany, enjoying merrymaking in ancient towns like Würzburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg and Regensburg. Travelling into Austria, you’ll visit Salzburg, whose alpine backdrop exudes festive cheer. Vienna is your next stop, after which you’ll travel on to Hungary’s capital of Budapest, for a Hungarian take on the festive season.
