The Package
The most magical time of the year is definitely fun by the Christmas tree, but it's even more fun with a river cruise and the Christmas markets of Germany, wouldn't you say? Get ready for the best gift you could ever give yourself, courtesy of the memory-making travel experts at Escapes Direct.

Explore Nuremberg, the preferred residence of emperors in the Middle Ages, and home to the largest and oldest Christmas market in Germany. Do the Nativity Walk in Bamberg, spend a day in fairytale-like Rothenburg where you'll try a local seasonal treat, and see the palace in Wurzburg - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Do a walking tour in Wertheim before finishing up in Frankfurt with a choice of excursions for you last day.

The Ship
Yes, the sights on your tour will be nothing short of amazing. But for it to all really work, you'd want someplace just as incredible to rest your head at night. Thank goodness for the River Queen! This gorgeous ship is 5-star, and you know that's the truth when it was rated #1 ship in the entire cruise industry in the 2012 Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Cruise Poll.

Decked out in regal art deco flair, it has spacious lounge areas, bars, restaurant, fitness centre, sauna, spa and more. And your room has all you need - handcrafted beds draped in 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, European duvets, entertainment system, daily snacks and more. Ahhh... Christmas is just such a wonderful time of the year!
