Make this Christmas a White Christmas! This tour combines a seven day Europe River Cruise with a “White Christmas” tour, incorporating Zermatt (Matterhorn), Glacier Express train, Salzburg (“Sound of Music”) and Christmas Markets in Vienna. Spend Christmas Day enjoying all the festivities and food onboard as we cruise from Budapest and then celebrate the New Year in beautiful Prague.
After flying into Zurich and then catching the train to Zermatt, you’ll discover this beautiful town lying below the iconic, pyramid-shaped Matterhorn peak. You’ll board the Glacier Express, one of Switzerland’s most scenic journeys. This is your chance to sit back, relax and witness the winter wonderland pass you by.
You’ll be singing on the mountains at the Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg before boarding your 7 night river cruise. Your cruise will take you to beautiful Passau, Melk, Vienna, Budapest , Esztergom, Bratislava and Dürnstein. Christmas Day will be on board the ship and will be a fantastic day with your fellow passengers.
You’ll be blown away by Cesky Krumlov, a city in the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic that is dominated by its 13th-century castle. Then to top this incredible tour off, you’ll spend the next few days in Prague to bring in the New Year.
