2019 Amsterdam > Prague

Breathe in the magic of Christmas

Europe becomes a completely different world during the festive season, where the aroma of glühwein and roasted chestnuts provide a unique and distinctly fragrant ambience.
Of course, Christmas has a distinctly European flavour all over the world, so it’s hardly surprising that you’ll experience a little more of that magic when you’re actually in Europe, where festive traditions hark all the way back to pre-Roman times. Santa Claus, Christmas trees, gift-giving – these have all been a part of the seasonal tradition in Europe for centuries. In town after town you’ll have the opportunity to experience these rituals with new eyes. As a special highlight, you may wish to join a Midnight Mass in a European town, and bring in the New Year in Vienna, one of the most beautiful cities in the world at any time of year.
