Starting in late November, the cities and towns of Germany fall under a holiday spell. Snow begins to fall on rooftops, bright lights line streets and homes, and the world-famous Christkindlmarkts
(Christmas markets) appear in village squares with music, treats, and holiday treasures. A gala holiday cruise is the best way to experience it all! Start your holiday season with Holiday Markets along the Main and Danube Rivers,
