German cities really come to life at ‘the most wonderful time of year’, and in Bremen and Hamburg you’ll have opportunities to fully immerse yourself in the country’s famous yuletide spirit. These cities are dazzling at Christmas, and you can experience the magic of their dreamland-esque Christmas markets, alive with the twinkling of lights and decorations, the buzz of people searching traditional wooden huts for a variety of gifts and treats, and the tempting scents and sweet-spiced flavours of authentic glühwein and lebkuchen.[ReadMoreMob]

Aside from the festive treasures, there’s also time to pack in plenty of other highlights during your memorable German city discovery. With Balmoral docking close to Bremen’s historic, UNESCO-listed centre, it’s easy to embark on a walking tour to take in the city’s gothic architecture and attractions such as the Schnoor medieval district and the trendy dockland area. Meanwhile an overnight stay in Hamburg is your chance to savour Hanseatic architecture, impressive landmarks, visit the unique Miniatur Wunderland, and take a scenic boat tour of the beautiful Alster Lake too.
