This Christmastime river cruise begins with two nights in Prague—one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. We’ll be immersed in holiday spirit as we explore the famous Christmas markets with rows of brightly decorated wooden huts that sell Christmas tree ornaments, wooden toys, and Czech handicrafts. Board our ship in Nuremberg—with guided sightseeing of its historical treasures, as well as Old Town, illuminated with holiday lights and decorations. There’s plenty of time to visit the Christmas market, one of the most famous in Germany. Next is delightful Bamberg, where nativity scenes built by local citizens are exhibited throughout town. Take a guided walk of a picturesque Bavarian village—sure to be even more appealing lit up with festive lights and decorations. As this unforgettable Europe river cruise ends in Wiesbaden, you will never forget the historical treasures of Germany and magnificent Prague perfectly paired with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the joyous holiday season.
