AmaCerto River Cruise.jpg

Experience the deep­rooted holiday traditions of Europe at its most festive time of year and get caught up in the magic of the holidays with visits to some of the world’s most timeless Christmas Markets.

Warm up with a mug of steamy glühwein while at the Cologne Christmas Market located in front of its UNESCO­designated Gothic cathedral.

Let the "Capital of Noël," Strasbourg, the oldest and largest Christmas Market in France, captivate you the way it has for so many others for centuries.

Meander through Heidelberg’s majestic Christmas Market nestled idyllically amongst the historic squares of the Old Town. And while in Gengenbach, marvel at the world’s largest Advent calendar, where every evening at 6:00 PM, the brightly lit windows of the neo­classical town hall open and behind each one is a picture by a famous artist, such as Andy Warhol. Cherish all the glory of the season in grand European style as you cruise along the Rhine.


Amsterdam to Basel

As we sail the Rhine river to Basel, you will feel like you have stepped into your own snow globe in each of the charming villages & cities. 



You will be starting your sailing off full of joy and sparkle as you visit the city of Amsterdam's festive season.  There you will hear buzzing holiday markets, concerts and parties whilst the aroma of mulled wine in the air. 



Known as the Capitale de Noel, It's one of the best Christmas Markets in Europe. 
From fairytale festive decoration with twinkling lights & polar bears, it's a must visit.
