Princeton, N.J. (June 29, 2017) – There is no better way to celebrate the Christmas season than with a festive journey aboard a Christmas Market river cruise that visits the European Christmas markets. Christmas Markets are generally open from mid-November until right before Christmas, but you have to plan ahead and book now, as these river cruises tend to sell out early, says Crown Cruise Vacations President Ross Spalding.

A history of the Christmas Markets, dating back to the Middle Ages
The history of Christmas markets goes back to the late middle ages in the German-speaking parts of Europe. The Vienna “December Market” was a forerunner of the Christmas market and dates back to 1294. In many of the charming towns and villages in Germany and Austria, Advent is usually ushered in with the opening of the Christmas markets.

The Christmas market sailings on river cruise lines generally begin in mid-November and continue through the end of the year. These sailings are typically held on the Main, Rhine, Danube and Seine rivers. They are perfect for those wanting to experience the quintessential magic of the holidays while shopping for one-of-a-kind treasures.

The ambiance still feels Medieval at the Christmas Markets, held in the town square. See and hear festive singing and dancing as Christmas lights twinkle while you explore unusual handmade gifts such as nativity scenes, handmade children’s toys and unique art. Explore baubles made by master glassblowers and find distinctive decorations that surely will be treasured for years. Pass Gothic Churches scented of frankincense and myrrh while all your senses are awakened to the smells of gingerbread, cloves, sugar cakes and ale.

This is truly an old-fashioned Christmas.
