There’s something really special about spending the winter holidays in Europe. Chilly nights make the perfect opportunity for warm baked goods (not to mention mulled wine), and Christmas lights keep the town squares well-lit into the wee hours. Adventures by Disney offers several trips to Europe during this special season, but there’s nothing more festive than their holiday cruise down Europe’s Danube River.
Savor the season with rousing seasonal onboard entertainment, and stop to shop at Christmas markets in charming ports such as Salzburg and Vienna. The sailing departs from Vilshofen, Germany and I highly recommend enjoying a cruise pre-night (which can also be booked through Adventures by Disney) in Munich, where you can experience an abundance of alluring holiday spirit throughout this bustling city.
Don’t take my word for it though: Check out today’s “After Dark” photo of Munich, taken during last year’s Adventures by Disney Holiday Danube River Cruise vacation. Behind that large-than-life Christmas tree you can just make out Munich’s famous glockenspiel – one of my favorite sights in this magical destination.
