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 glühwein 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, Rüdesheim and Cologne.
