There are few things more enchanting at Christmastime than wandering a German Christmas market with a mug of festive Glühwein in hand, admiring the charming lights, traditional gifts and delightful medieval architecture. This wonderful 8-day journey between Nuremberg and Amsterdam introduces you to some of Germany’s most iconic Christkindlmarkts, including those on display in the cities of Bamberg, Würzburg, Miltenberg, Rüdesheim and Koblenz. By day, you can take in iconic sights like the Rhine Gorge, Cologne Cathedral and opulent World Heritage site of Bishop’s Residenz in Würzburg, before visiting iconic Christmas markets as evening falls and the lights begin to twinkle. Your final stop is Amsterdam, whose Christmas festivities are, in themselves, truly unforgettable.
