Europe’s rivers can be a magical place during winter, with two river cruise itineraries featured in APT’s newest 2016 Winter Wonderland brochure to help you plan your next winter holiday.

A 10-day ‘Christmas Markets on the Danube’ cruise between Prague and Budapest incorporates a seven-night river cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest. Alternatively, a 12-day ‘Christmas Markets on the Rhine’ option takes passengers on a seven-night cruise from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland, which ends with two nights in Lucerne and two nights in Zurich.

Guests can take opportunities to dabble in retail therapy among the quaint and traditional town square vendors and their stalls, which are often covered in snow.

All meals onboard the river cruise ships are included along with all port charges, gratuities and alcoholic drinks during meal times.
