We have the dates! And we’re very excited!
Wendy and I will be taking a group of quilters on a riverboat cruise of the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basal, December 5th to the 13th, 2020!
This may sound like it’s a long way off, but the riverboat cruises of the European Christmas Markets fill up early and fast, so please read on and sign up soon!
We’ll board the AmaMora in Amsterdam, a city of many beautiful canals, and cruise through a number of them before beginning our trip down the Rhine.
Our next stop will be Cologne, Germany, where we’ll visit one of Germany’s most renowned Christmas markets located in front of the Gothic Cologne Cathedral.
From there we’ll cruise through the castle-laden Rhine River Gorge. There will be opportunities to visit delightful markets in the towns of Rüdesheim, Heidelberg, Speyer, Riquewihr and Freiburg.
Our riverboat will also take us to Strasbourg, France, where the Christkindelsmärik dates back to 1570. This makes it the oldest Christmas Market in France.
Our final stop will be Basal, Swizerland another city of great beauty in yet another country and yes, the Christmas markets are here too!
In many of these ports we’ll have the option to take a guided tour of the city/town, but if you’re a bit more adventurous, our ship will have bicycles available for your use in every port. The winters are fairly mild along the river and biking is a fun option. This trip truly has something for everyone!
Visiting the Christmas Markets has been on my bucket list for years and I’m thrilled to have it become a reality. But remember – these trips fill fast and we only have a short window of time to fill the cabins we have reserved, before AMAWaterways will take them back – because they know this cruise will fill!
