Why you should travel to Europe
Travelling to Europe during autumn, winter and spring is just as beautiful and awe-inspiring as in summer. Travellers will get the opportunity to enjoy and experience a true ‘white Christmas’. There’s nothing quite like Paris covered in a light dusting of snow or the beauty of a European Christmas market. Plus, taking a journey abroad during the off season period is a bonus if overcrowded peek-season destinations aren’t your thing. If this sounds like the ideal holiday for you, then be sure to contact Trafalgar to make this dream a reality.
Oh, the experiences you’ll have!
With Trafalgar as your guide, you’ll enjoy amazing insider moments from cruising along picturesque canals in Strasbourg, with its medieval city centre, rustic chalets and Christmas stalls, to discovering how traditional cuckoo clocks are made, deep in the heart of the Black Forest! Strasbourg is considered the ‘capital of Christmas markets’ and is held in front of the beautiful Strasbourg Cathedral, known for its Gothic towers and astronomical clock. With over 300 chalets (stalls), it also boasts a skating rink on Place du Chateau and some of the most wonderful Christmas trees on show.
Travellers heading to the Strasbourg Chriskindlmarkt, which is nearly 500 years old, must try out the ‘bredele’ – delightfully tasty traditional biscuits that come in a variety of flavours including hazelnut, orange and cinnamon, coconut and praline and many more! Also, the market offers a wide range of authentic Alsatian arts, crafts, food and Christmas decorations.
Other wonderful highlights you’ll enjoy on this guided holiday include a city tour in Paris and Freiburg, a river cruise in Strasbourg, plus a local orientation of Reims, Strasbourg, Colmar and Dijon, which will really bring these cities to life. Then, sit back and relax as you are treated to a scenic drive through the Black Forest and soak up the energising atmosphere of the Champs Ely sees and Arc de Triumphed in Paris, and the Notre-Dame de Reims and European Parliament in Strasbourg.
And for car enthusiasts, you will also visit the largest car museum in the world – the National Automobile Museum – and get to see a showcase of 400 beautifully-presented classic, prestige and racing cars, which trace the history of the automobile.
