Itinerary

Description

Combine a scenic river cruise along the majestic River Rhine with an exploration of the region’s beautiful cities and their traditional Christmas Markets. The cities’ labyrinthine old quarters, medieval market squares and striking cathedrals provide the perfect setting for these atmospheric festive markets.

Coach

Day 1 – Journey to Rüdesheim

We catch the ferry to Calais and journey onwards to Rüdesheim where we board the MV Esmeralda.

Day 2 – Koblenz Christmas Market

We moor up in the elegant city of Koblenz around lunchtime. Built at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers, the city is full of historic buildings, cosy lanes and romantic squares, all overlooked by the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, standing high above the Rhine.

Held in the picturesque Old Town, the Christmas Market has over one hundred festively decorated stalls offering an extensive range of hand-made goods, Christmas decorations and seasonal gift ideas.

Day 3 – Cologne Christmas Markets

Leaving Koblenz we sail towards Cologne, Germany’s oldest city, where we moor up in the afternoon. There are no fewer than six separate Christmas Markets set up around the city centre, with Cologne’s landmark cathedral providing an impressive backdrop to the main market. Stalls are crammed with a vast range of tempting and traditional goodies including handcrafted toys, keepsakes and ceramics.

Day 4 – Journey home

We disembark the ship and head to Calais for our return ferry home.
