Christmas Spirit Magic

Christmas Markets, Lights & Gourmet Glühwein

Our first stop celebrates what this region is most famous for and what flows in abundance during the holiday season – wine!  Starting with a behind-the-scenes look into this award-winning winery, we take a short tour where we will learn the many secrets and history of this amazing art.  Next, we’ll enjoy a tasting of the traditional delicious wines cultivated in the Mosel valley and then delve into hot mulled varieties of spiced Glühwein, a heartwarming drink that goes hand in hand with the holiday season.  We’ll also enjoy a sample of Prosecco, a wine that always gives that perfect sparkle to any holiday celebration. Our host, and 13th generation wine producer will guide you through the tasting, and also share his family's holiday tradition of amazing spices used to make the perfectly irresistible gourmet Glühwein!  Before we leave, everyone will be given a special gift bottle of Glühwein to take home as a keepsake to enjoy later and have a chance to stock up on wine for their personal collections with a visit to the vineyards onsite store. 

After departing the winery, we will follow the Mosel for a short scenic drive to the fairytale town of Bernkastel–Kues where our first Christmas Market of the day is waiting to be explored. The unique atmosphere of this historical city will whisper the sweet joy of Christmas into your heart while the alluring smell of famous Moselle Wine in hot steaming mugs sends out a warm welcome to your other senses!  Festively decorated stalls filled with high-end artisan crafts, Christmas decorations of all sorts and, delicious gingerbread and other tasty snacks are waiting to be discovered.  We invite you to stroll along cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses, sampling the many culinary delights of the market as you go.  The vintage Christmas ambiance of Bernkastel–Kues is certain to charm and delight you.

After a short bus ride up the Moselle River, we will arrive at Luxembourg, the capital of one of Europe’s smallest countries. Here you will find thousands of Christmas lights sending a warm glowing kiss into the night air, adding to the ambiance, festivities, and music that seem to cast a magical winter spell over town. The traditional Christmas Market found at Place d'Armes, the historic city center of Luxembourg is foundry referred to by the locals as “Lëtzebuerger Chrëschtmaart”. This year, this traditional market features quaint vendor chalets offering a host of gift ideas, gourmet delights, a beautiful Christmas tree, and a giant nativity scene.  Here you are free to explore the market's many offerings, enjoy the brilliant display of lights and look for more Christmas treasures!

This beautiful day out is the perfect way to stock up on everything you’ll need for the holiday season; wine, delectable holiday treats, gifts, decorations, and good holiday cheer!
