Where to go in December

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – but what if you dream of getting away from the hustle and bustle of the festive season at home? We asked our well-travelled team to recommend the best places for a December holiday, from the bright lights and supersized trees of Manhattan to the quaint festive markets that line the Rhine in Germany.  

Our pick: the best places to visit in December

1. Germany

Warming glühwein, cobbled streets glowing with fairy lights, wooden chalets hawking stollen cake and souvenirs – nowhere does Christmas markets quite like Germany. A river cruise along the Rhine is a great way to see a handful of the finest market towns (including Cologne, Koblenz and Rüdesheim) in one trip.

2. Canaries, Europe

Escape the winter chill and sail south for a balmy Christmas and New Year on the shores of the Canary Islands. Leave the stresses of the festive period behind and spend a leisurely day at sea on the 25th, feasting on festive delights and enjoying fantastic entertainment aboard Fred. Olsen’s Balmoral. On New Year’s Eve, we’ll dock in Santa Cruz, Tenerife to watch the famed fireworks light up the sky.

3. New York, USA

The Big Apple is wonderful in the lead-up to Christmas. Lights decorate streets, squares and shops, department stores compete to create the most spectacular window displays, and (of course), there’s THAT giant Christmas tree outside Rockefeller Centre. If you’re lucky, you might even be there to see the season’s first dusting of snow…
