Europen Christmas market Tour Trip Highlights
I’ve timed this trip so that we’ll be back in plenty of time before the holiday season gets into full swing back at home.
We’ll fly out Wednesday, November 29th, 2023, the week after Thanksgiving in the US. We’ll spend eight (8) fun-filled nights in Europe, getting home December 9th.
I’ve worked hard to make this trip a super good value! This can normally be a very expensive trip. Not mine! I’ve worked really hard to negotiate a great deal.
What To Expect
On this trip, you’ll see lots more Christmas markets than most tours.
We’ll stay in the best hotels, eat amazing food, and we’ll do some extra special things on this trip! You’ll get breakfast every morning at our hotel, three delicious multi-course lunches, two VERY special holiday dinners, a 4-hour river cruise, and more.
Day 1 – Munich, Germany
We’ll start out our trip by flying into one of my favorite cities, Munich, Germany.
It’s so beautiful! During the holidays, even more so! I was just there in Munich last summer.
I’m pretty excited about all the German food we’ll get to eat, like pork roast, potato dumplings, schnitzel and spaetzle! I’m dreaming of the giant freshly pretzels and homemade Obatzda, beer cheese spread! Oh my is it AMAZING!
We’re staying at a 4.5 star hotel in Munich in a great location, within walking distance to all places we want to visit.
I’ve arranged for some serious fun in Munich.
Upon arrival, we’ll have a big Bavarian welcome lunch at a local Brauhaus with your choice of German beer or wine. That afternoon , we’ll head to our first Christmas market of the trip.
We’ll get a private guided tour of Munich’s biggest Christmas market at the historic Marienplatz near our hotel. Then we can shop and eat at the market all night long!
Day 2 – Munich, Germany
Our next day in Munich, we can sleep in a bit and have a big breakfast at our hotel. Then, I have arranged a very special treat: we’re going on a pub crawl with a local.
He knows his Munich history, and he knows THE BEST Munich Pubs. We’ll walk with him around the Marienplatz to learn about the churches, the outdoor markets and wonderful German Pubs.
We’ll make some fun, delicious stops for German food along the way! That evening we’ll get to visit two more different Munich area Christmas markets, each very unique and special!
Day 3 – Neuschwanstein Castle & Regensburg, Germany
On our 3rd full day in Germany, we’re in for another treat! After breakfast, we’ll board our private motor coach to tour one of the most beautiful castles in the world.
The fairytale-like Neuschwanstein Castle is the inspiration for the famous Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty castles of Disney.
We’ll get to visit and tour this magical castle which is especially beautiful during winter and the holidays when the towers and mountains are often dusted with snow! I can’t wait!
After we tour the castle, we’ll head to the charming town of Regensburg, Germany.
We’ll be able to check into our hotel and then stroll around Regensburg’s romantic Christmas market. Then, it’s time for some more Christmas magic!
Regensburg is on the beautiful Danube River. Tonight we’re going to take a holiday dinner cruise on the Danube.
We’ll start our cruise with a mulled wine wine reception, on the beautiful, festively decorated Chrystal Queen river cruise boat. We’ll enjoy a 4-course holiday dinner.
There will be live Christmas music, and we’ll get to see all the beautiful sparkling holiday lights of the city from our boat ride on the Danube. It’s going to be a magical night!

After our fun night in Regensburg, the next morning after breakfast, we’ll board our motor coach and head to Nuremberg, Germany, for two nights.
