Strasbourg & German Christmas Markets Quilting Cruise with Karin Hellaby

Strasbourg & German Christmas Markets Quilting Cruise with Karin Hellaby

Dates: 9-13 December 2017 - 4 nights

Prices: from £849 per person Single supplement: £149

For a truly magical pre-Christmas break Arena have combined a relaxing cruise on the mighty river Rhine with the chance to explore Strasbourg and the traditional German Christmas Markets from the comfort of your floating hotel. Each winter, the streets and squares of Strasbourg are illuminated with light as Christmas casts its spell on the beautiful French City which is one of the largest and oldest Christmas Markets in Europe. You'll explore the city of Mannheim, with its own market and there’s a chance to join an optional excursion to Heidelberg in the Neckar Valley. With a visit to Cologne, where you will find Germany’s favourite and largest Christmas market easy to explore from our Rhine – side hotel, this is a Christmas market extravaganza!

5_gingerbreads_candies_and_nuts_displayed_on_a_christmas_market_stall_in_germany Karin Hellaby loves Christmas Markets! Especially, the unique crafts and the smell of Christmas foods. She'll join you to explore the Markets around the Rhine river, each one with its own unique flavour and atmosphere, with the flexibility of rail travel for extra shopping! She will have fabric kits ready for you to make Christmas ornaments in a variety of techniques, so that you can indulge in a little (or a lot) of stitching whilst you drift through the lovely wintry scenes.
