From Christmas holidays with all the trimmings to New Year celebrations with dancing till dawn, we’ve got the festive season all wrapped up. Here are some amazing experiences you could have on a Travelsphere festive holiday.
Visit Lyon during the Festival of Lights
At the beginning of December, the French city of Lyon is transformed into a multi-coloured wonderland as talented visual artists create light installations around the city. For four magical nights, designers from around the world compete to create the most dazzling displays. The festival dates back to 1852, when local people lit candles to honour a statue of the Virgin Mary. Nowadays, cutting-edge displays illuminate buildings, trees, parks and rivers and breathtaking light shows are accompanied by music, video and sound effects.
To experience this incredible event, join our Discover Lyon & the Festival of Lights by Eurostar holiday.
Browse the Christmas markets in Munich, Vienna and Linz
Visit the fairy-tale Christmas markets in a trio of European cities as you enjoy a relaxing cruise along the River Danube. In Munich, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy a steaming hot mug of glühwein amidst the twinkling lights of the Christmas market, before you join your ship and cruise to Vienna. With a full day at leisure in the beautiful Austrian capital, you can explore the sights and shop for traditional gifts and festive treats in one of the city’s many magical markets. Finally, you’ll arrive in the charming city of Linz, where the aroma of gingerbread wafts through the air welcoming you to the Christmas markets.
