Christmas market river cruises are simply magical. And if I had to stop at one single reason why you should take one for a holiday vacation, that would be it. However, there are many other reasons why you should gather your family and take a Christmas market river cruise for a holiday vacation. Today, I am going to share those reasons with you, so you can see just how incredible these Christmas market river cruises truly are.
One of the main reasons you should take a Christmas market river cruise is the one I already listed above. Celebrating the magic of the season is always better when you are in spectacular destinations around the world. There are plenty of Christmas markets in Europe. You can visit many of them during a river cruise too.
These Christmas markets are full of Christmas music, sparkling lights, decorations, and food. The ambiance at these markets is always lively. Fires are burning in fire pits or in barrels. Chestnuts are roasting. And the smell of gingerbread fills the air. Add in the locals laughing and having fun and you have memories you will never forget.
Not everyone needs a scarf, toaster, or a gift card as a present during the holidays. If you really want your gifts to stand out, purchase them at the Christmas markets you visit during a river cruise.
There are so many different gifts you can choose from. Handblown glass, wooden toys, and handmade ornaments are only a few things you can get during your visit.
Okay, so you can easily drink mulled wine at home. However, drinking mulled wine in Germany, or wherever you are visiting the Christmas markets, is a much better experience. Every vendor makes their mulled wine a little differently. It is best to try a few versions before declaring your all-time favorite.
Don’t want to wait to drink mulled wine?? Here is an excellent recipe for making it at home!
There is always plenty of food available at Christmas markets. Over in Germany, you will find lebkuchen, schmalzkuchen, maroni, and pfannkuchen. Sausages, potato pancakes, and potato dumplings are also available from certain vendors.
You obviously have your own holiday cultures back home. When you take a Christmas market river cruise, your family will be introduced to so many other holiday cultures and traditions. You may decide that you want to include some of those new cultures and traditions into your holidays when you get back home. If not, at least you have the memories you made while learning about them all during your family vacation.
Nothing beats the scenery you can see while on a river cruise. Especially during the holiday season. As the river boat is floating down the river, you can look at all the landscape along the way. Most of the time, the buildings will be all decked out for the holidays.
So, the Christmas markets you visit during your river cruise will definitely be crowded. However, every other attraction you visit will have fewer people. This means you won’t find yourself waiting in long lines. You won’t need to rush. And you can see more in a shorter amount of time.
These are the best reasons to take a Christmas market river cruise for a holiday vacation. I am sure you will discover many other reasons, as you are making memories with your family!
