A couple of years ago, we experienced Christmas markets on a trip to Brussels. We really enjoyed the festive atmosphere, so when our neighbours suggested going on a Christmas Market river cruise, we jumped at the chance.
We booked a one week cruise that started in Basel, Switzerland and ended in Amsterdam. We flew into Paris and took the train to Basel. After the cruise, we spent Christmas in Amsterdam, then took the train to Paris to spend New Year’s Eve there. A lot of travelling around! You can read all about our trip here.
As we will be experiencing various modes of travel and staying at a few hotels, I also spent time doing reviews of our travel and accommodations. Check it out here.
