DFDS Cologne Christmas Markets Mini Cruise Review
If Europe does one thing brilliantly it is Christmas Markets. Cologne in Germany hosts some of the most famous of all. In a cold December I hopped on a DFDS ferry as part of their Cologne Christmas Markets Mini Cruise, which included ferry transport to Ijmuiden (Amsterdam), coach transfers to Cologne and a hotel stay in the city. Did the markets live up to their legendary status? Find out below.
I enjoyed a bit of sightseeing in the Lake District on my way to the ferry terminal in North Shields, Newcastle.
