CHRISTMASTIME IN THE HEART OF GERMANY

Tour WFN  MAINZ  PRAGUE
In Wiesbaden, board your ship decorated and dressed up in Christmas colors, and embark on this festive Christmastime river cruise through the heart of Germany—ending with two nights in marvelous Prague, Czech Republic.

On the banks of the Main River, behind medieval walls and towered gates, is the picturesque Bavarian village of Miltenberg. Take a step back in time during your guided walk of this cultural gem with half-timbered houses and narrow streets. Celebrate the season in charming Würzburg, known as the “Pearl of the Romantic Road,” and surrounded by sloping hills covered with vineyards. Visit the ornate Bishop’s Residenz—home to the largest ceiling fresco ever painted, then stroll through the Christmas markets while you sip Glühwein (hot mulled wine). Continue your Christmastime river cruise to Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the many nativity scenes exhibited throughout the town are sure to delight. Then Nuremberg, where, after your guided tour, you are free to visit the Christmas market, one of the most famous in the world. Be sure to savor some traditional lebkuchen (spicy gingerbread), a Nuremberg specialty. While on board, you’ll also learn how to bake a traditional cookie and hear all about German Christmas traditions. Disembark your ship and travel to Prague, Czech Republic—a 1,200-year-old city preserved in time. Stand in front of the medieval Astronomical Clock, walk across Charles Bridge, and browse the Christmas markets where rows of brightly decorated wooden huts sell Christmas tree ornaments, wooden toys, and Czech handicrafts. And you can’t miss the beautifully decorated tree in Old Town!

Historical treasures of Germany and magnificent Prague are perfectly paired with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the joyous holiday season on this unforgettable European river cruise.
