Christmas in July with TAUCK
CHRISTMAS MARKETS ALONG THE RHINE – BASEL TO KÖLN OR VICE VERSA
From US$2,550 for 8 Days
Tauck's Christmas market tours and river cruises along the Rhine, from Basel to Köln aboard ms Swiss Jewel or ms Inspire, are perfect ways to capture all the magic of Christmas Markets in Germany and France.
Along with all the inclusions that are part of every Tauck river cruise, Tauck's Christmas market tours will wow with special holiday touches like an onboard tree-trimming party, glühwein and other treats aboard the riverboat. The riverboat will be decorated in a festive seasonal theme, a traditional European Christmas dinner with all the fixings, special evenings of onboard holiday-themed entertainment, visits to markets in cities like Aachen and Colmar that other holiday cruises don't visit.
