Rhine Christmas Markets

Take a trip through time, from cosmopolitan capitals, to Medieval marketplaces.

Beginning in Amsterdam, your journey through the festive splendour of Europe continues onwards to the home of the winter markets we have come to know and love. Peruse the gingerbread-like stalls of Cologne, Koblenz, Rüdesheim and Strasbourg, purchasing handmade  artefacts and being swept up in the majesty of the  intoxicating Glühwein, as magnificent castles act as the most fantastical of backdrops.
