Christmas Market Tours

Christmas Market Tours are incredibly inexpensive due mostly to the time of year... There are Christmas Market Tours through Central European countries such as Austria, France, and Germany.

Dating as far back as the 1400s, Christmas Markets in Europe have been providing locals and foreigners with Christmas light shows, concerts, apple cider, gluhwein, and Christmas Trees that put Rockefeller Center's spruce to shame! The thing with Christmas Markets in Europe is that there are many; most throughout Central Europe... There are many ways to experience European Christmas Markets, two of which are Christmas Market Tours and Christmas Market River Cruises.

Difference Between A Christmas Market Tour and a Christmas Market River Cruise?

The difference between a Christmas Market Tour and a Christmas Market River Cruise is that you only have to unpack once for one of them. Rivers used to be the highways of Europe back in the day, and unlike today where you have to travel far and wide to reach major city centers, city centers were right off the river. Take Prague for example... For the past ten centuries, Prague has been filling the Vltava River, which is home to over 1 million people. Escorted tours of Europe that include Prague, normally include Vienna and Budapest. That said, the distance between Vienna and Prague is about 200 miles. Tours of Prague Vienna and Budapest normally have a stop in Bratislava or Moravia, which eases the bus ride between the two destinations. On a Prague Vienna and Budapest river cruise, you'll be floating on the river seeing all the castles and sites as you sail through. Like escorted Europe Tours, European River Cruises offer options such as bicycling through a bike trail near the river as the vessel floats beside you.

What Makes Christmas Market Tours So Special

Here's what makes Christmas Market Tours so special:

  • During the four Sundays preceding Christmas (Advent), Christkindlmarkts fill the streets of many cities and villages bringing Christmas to life.

  • Getting to see and experience a Christmas Market in Europe by itself is most definitely a bucket list item.

  • Having the chance to purchase unusual holiday ornaments not easily found in the states is also a treat.

  • Experiencing warm Gluhwein while wandering through Central Europe Christmas Market during a cold winter's night is a highlight.

  • Iceskating in Rockefeller Center is a wonderful experience; however, iceskating in the middle of a five hundred year old Christmas Market is entirely something else.

  • Discovering hot chimney cakes, Spatzle, and Lebkuchen can transform your experience into something amazing!

Good service and Sandi was very helpful. Clients need all details as normally they are far away from your office and with the time difference of 10-12 hours it is the prompt reply with all details makes the difference between good and bad service.
