Celebrate Christmas the old way, with a magical cruise along the German Cristmas markets.

Use the afternoon/evenings to shop your Christmas presents for this year on the German Christmas markets and visit old towns.

When you want an afternoon brake from Christmas, we included an excursion to an old steel factory that changed into a beautiful park.
