AMA Waterways Christmas on the Rhine
Alan and I will be taking a European Christmas riverboat cruise on AMA Waterways in December 2012. Ports include Amsterdam, Netherlands; Cologne, Koblenz, Rudesheim, Worms, Heidleberg and Freiburg in Germany; Strasborg and Colmar, France. Cruise ends in Basel, Switzerland with a land extension in Luzern and Zurich.
Christmas in Strasbourg, France is a festive event. The buildings are decorated with teddy bears hanging from the windows. And trees are placed in front of stores. We visited on an AmaWaterways Christmas on the Rhine cruise.
Have you visited Strasbourg, France during the holidays? It really does qualify as the Capital of Christmas. We visited on an AmaWaterways cruise. Read about our experience.
Although we didn't see the Basel Christmas market lit up at night, a walk through the festivities during the daytime was fun, too. Another pinner said: "Basel Christmas Market. Photography: Property of Viking River Cruises unless noted. Unauthorized use is prohibited."

I had to hold my camera against AmaWaterways Amacello's window to take this photo. The weather was too messy to go outside. But the ride through the Rhine gorge was still beautiful. In this photo: Church Liebfrauenkirche at Oberwesel on the Rhine
Not every cruise through the Rhine Gorge occurs in idyllic weather. But that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy the scenery. Take a look.
Explore Amsterdam before your AMA Waterways Christmas cruise starts its journey down the Rhine River. We did.

Cologne at Dusk, Germany ... "Favorite Places" is a bit of a misnomer. I once drove across this bridge multiple times trying to get into the correct one way lane that would take me to my hotel - which was almost in this picture!
Cologne at Dusk, Germany - "Visited with my parents and two sisters few times. Amazing city which I want to visit over and over again! Cologne Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and is a World Heritage Site. It can be seen from nearly every point in the city centre and from many places elsewhere. It is also one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic and Neo-Gothic architecture in the world." #köln #cologne

Amsterdam-on the bucket list
Dubbed the "Venice of the North", Amsterdam's canals are a great way to travel around the city. The canals have been part of the city's landscape since the early 14th century. However most of the current canals were built during the 17th century, Amsterdam's golden age. A municipal canal-bus system travels three different routes, allowing locals an easy way to get to and from work and giving visitors the opportunity to travel from one attraction to the other on the water.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands - one of my favorite places to visit
Another pinner said: "When you visit Amsterdam, a boat tour of the city's waterways should be one of the top to-dos on your list."
