BEND, Ore. - Dec. 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Bend, Oregon travel agency, Destination: Uncharted has launched bookings for its 2021 European Christmas market tour, including a luxury river cruise through four countries next December 6-14. The itinerary begins in Zurich, Switzerland, before setting sail out of Basel, winding up the Rhine River through France and Germany and then concluding in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The river cruise has seven stops along the Rhine River to include visits to some of Europe's most celebrated Christmas markets.

Travel in 2021 is anticipated to be in high demand as the world prepares for a better year. As the coronavirus vaccine looms near, people have begun planning their 2021 vacations. Many travelers are ready to stretch their muscle for adventure and have started planning trips to far off destinations that will quench their thirst for culture and history and make up for a year without travel.

One of the most memorable trips one can take is a traditional European Christmas market cruise up the Rhine River. The Christmas markets were muted this year due to coronavirus precautions. The coming year is expected to be a more spectacular event for locals and travelers alike.

Central Oregon resident and European travel expert Vicky Malakoff of Destination: Uncharted is originally from Germany and is eager to share some of her most cherished memories and destinations with those who join her on the cruise. Besides enjoying holiday cultural favorites such as gingerbread and Glühwein amid an explosion of holiday lights in some of Europe's oldest cities, Vicky's travel itinerary has something for everyone. Hiking, biking, sightseeing, and of course, a visit to some of Europe's most celebrated Christmas markets are a small part of the all-inclusive itinerary.

Christmas markets date back to around 1310, the earliest known to have been in Munich, Germany. Despite its name, these outdoor Christmas markets open the four weeks preceding Christmas and celebrate Advent. For centuries these markets have been a cornerstone of Northern European tradition bringing much-needed holiday cheer to locals. A typical Christmas market features local artisans who sell a variety of traditional German handicrafts such as nutcrackers and handmade ornaments. There are also food vendors offering traditional local fare such as bratwurst, Glühwein, and gingerbread.
