Christmas Markets on the Rhine
Embark on your voyage from the beautiful canal city of Amsterdam, travelling towards Cologne, your first German city, which will be lit up with festive light. Each of the ports-of-call on this river voyage have plenty of excursions to take part in, including bike rides, wine tastings and tours of the cities that you visit. On top of that, you’ll be well positioned to visit the many seasonal attractions along the way.
After leaving Cologne, you’ll travel down through one of the most scenic areas of the Rhine, known as the Rhine Gorge, spotting castles from your balcony or the public areas of the AmaCerto. Moving on to Rüdesheim and Ludwigshafen in the south-west of Germany, you’ll be delighted with a host of cities and towns to explore through the cruise excursions or simply enjoy the Christmas markets.
Next on the list of ports that you’ll visit are Strasbourg, home to the oldest Christmas Market in France, and Breisach which is great for visiting Freiburg. From here you’ll be travelling to Basel in Switzerland for your flight home.
Whilst on your voyage you’ll be surrounded by comfort and elegance on the AmaCerto, a small 162 passenger luxury vessel that’s perfectly engineered for river cruising.
