A whirlwind tour of the German Christmas Markets could see you visiting Rudesheim, Passau, Nuremberg, Koblenz, Bremen, Strasbourg and Cologne, not to mention discovering other jewels along the Rhine, such as the Deutsches Eck, with its infamous statue of the Lorelei, and plenty of fairytale castles. In Austria, youll pay a visit to Vienna and possible even take in an opera at the same time, while travelling further west could get you a way along the Danube and into the glorious capital city of Hungary; Budapest, or Prague in the Czech Republic.

A little closer to home you might choose to pick a sailing route at the French end of the Rhine in order to stop off in Frances Rouen and Honfleur, Amsterdam in the Netherlands or picturesque Bruges in Belgium. Scandinavia is also a possibility with Gothenburg in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark both being schedule options.
