Join the WDW Radio Community on a Danube River Christmas Markets River Cruise – December 9-16, 2023

Are you interested in joining us on our very FIRST Nat Geo Adventure?!

Join Lou Mongello on our very first WDW Radio NATGEO Expedition group adventure on a Danube Christmas Markets River Cruise, December 9-16, 2023!

The holiday spirit thrives in Central Europe, where Christkindlmarkt—or Christmas markets—turn grand city squares and baroque palaces into magical winter wonderlands. The banks of the Danube play host to some of the continent’s oldest and most treasured Christmas traditions. Immerse yourself in vibrant markets and holiday cheer alongside a National Geographic Expert and a National Geographic Photography Expert as you cruise from Budapest to Vienna to Austria’s Wachau Valley to Passau. Browse charming huts filled with handmade ornaments, gingerbread, and wooden soldiers, as choral music and the aroma of mulled wine fill the air. Visit historic palaces that have been transformed into Christmas villages. With a variety of daily excursions to choose from, you can tailor the trip to fit your Christmas wishes.

  • Savor Central European holiday traditions in Christmas markets from Budapest to Vienna to Salzburg to Passau and learn to shoot nighttime photos with a National Geographic Photography Expert.
  • Explore lesser known Christmas markets set within historic palaces in Vienna and Salzburg.
  • Visit Vienna’s Museum of Natural History and meet National Geographic Grantee Ludovic Ferrière for a behind-the-scenes look at the meteorite exhibit he curated.
