Discover Europe's Christmas Markets, where the town center, market square or just the narrow, cobblestone streets of the cities and towns of Europe come alive in winter with festively decorated wooden stalls offering all sorts of treats and delights. Travel along the rivers that connect Germany, France and Switzerland (the Mosel, Rhine and Main rivers), visit cities and towns and learn of their history, see their major sights, and visit their charming markets. Besides being a visual treat, the show is also a musical treat, as the Kingston Trio provides special folk arrangements of traditional Christmas carols to add to the magic and enchantment of the medieval and castle towns we visit. This show is a true Christmas treat, with the warmth and the fun of the holiday season, and some geography and history lessons to boot!
