There's one type of cruise that requires a heavy coat and a warm sense of nostalgia. Armed with both, we set off down the Rhine in December on Viking Aegir to discover the best (and wurst) that Central Europe's well-loved Christmas markets have to offer. Meandering along the river -- and the ancient cobbled streets -- we encountered chocolate Santas, weird witches, a crafty candle market, and plenty of gl├╝hwein and wurst. A river cruise is one of the best ways to see these seasonal markets, so join us (virtually) as we eat, drink and shop our way through Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Koblenz, R├╝desheim and Cologne.
