Experience the magic of a Christmas Markets River Cruise with Uniworld during the most festive time of the year!

Onboard the amazing and luxurious River Queen or elegant River Princess, we will take you to some of the most famous markets in Germany, discovering villages with fairytale houses and a friendly, festive atmosphere.

From Nuremberg, known as the “Gingerbread Capital of the World” with one of the largest Christmas Markets, to Bamberg, a medieval German city, which has four extraordinary Christmas Markets and a captivating amount of nativity scenes located along the nativity trail.

From there you will travel to Würzburg’s glorious Christmas Market, which is held in the square in front of the old City Hall. Beautifully decorated wooden booths are illuminated by the soft glow of Christmas lighting, and the air is filled with the scent of roasted chestnuts and the sound of Christmas songs.

You will also explore Wertheim during an entertaining walking tour of the city enjoying exquisite Mulled wine and Christmas Stollen recipes. Located at the confluence of the Tauber and Main rivers, Wertheim is a lovely village dating back over a thousand years.

Our final destination is Frankfurt,  and its old town, the Altstadt, which has hosted some of the best Christmas markets for centuries. In Frankfurt, you will have the option to go on a festive “Taste of Christmas” walking tour featuring all sorts of sugary and savory treats, or alternatively, head out of town on an excursion to the Christmas market in Wiesbaden.
