Is it too early to think about Christmas? I didn’t think so. (In fact, it’s exactly four months from today!)
Mockingbird Travel is pleased to announce its new “Not-a-River-Cruise” tour of the Christmas markets of France and Germany. The Christmas season in Europe is truly magical – all those twinkling white lights and mugs of mulled wine take the chill out of the air and warm the cockles of your heart! By now, experiencing the Christmas markets of Europe by river cruise has become something of a tradition. But since we like to go a little off-the-beaten-path here at Mockingbird, we’ve developed an alternative Christmas market experience. If you love the idea of visiting the Christmas markets of Europe but aren’t sold on the idea of a river cruise, this is the trip for you!
Instead of heading to the river, we’ll hit the rails. (After all, trains are by far the best way to explore Europe.) Starting in Paris, we’ll visit some of the quaintest towns and best Christmas markets in Alsace and Bavaria: adorable Colmar, medieval Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and impressive Nuremberg. There will, of course, be outstanding shopping, plus delicious food, sparkling light displays, and more holiday spirit than you can fit in a suitcase. And staying in the heart of these lovely towns will allow us to enjoy them after dark, when their streets are quietest and their sparkling decorations are at their most enchanting. If you’ve never experienced Europe during the Christmas season before, you’re in for a treat.
Our Not-a-River-Cruise European Christmas Market Tour only happens once a year, and this year we’re offering it at an appropriately festive (i.e., reduced) price.
Please join us for this special tour and experience the magic of a European Christmas for yourself.
