Overview: Celebrate Christmas the RTT way!  Experience the joy of  Rhineland Christmas Markets with local specialties, music and festivities to round out the day. RTT has a direct bus, with late morning departure. 

:  From point of origin in the KMC, travel directly to the Rhine River area and visit the first Christmas market of the day – a beautiful little celebration at the foot of the Mainz Cathedral. Next, visit Ruedesheim on the Rhine.  It may be the small town with the big name, but Ruedesheim is the best known town along the Rhine, where you can walk through the world-famous “Drosselgass”, taste wines at various wine cellars, and visit a number of interesting museums. And its Christmas Market of the Nations has a distinct international flair!

Experience the magic of Christmas lights glittering along the riverbanks.  The international Christmas Market is a gem in the winter crown of Ruedesheim!  At their more than 100 vendors, guests find many of the large and small gifts they have been looking for.

After strolling through the Christmas Market and experiencing the local charm of Ruedesheim, stop into a restaurant to enjoy local wines, beers and good winter fare.  Then enjoy popular German Christmas music in various venues to tingle your senses and jingle your feet!  The city along the Rhine makes your Noel night an adventure with a life-size Nativity display in the Market Square.  Families will find plenty to entertain children with carousels, pony rides, a petting zoo and the small train.  Ruedesheim’s Kristkind may also visit with surprises for the children.  St. Thomas Night festivities close out the evening. 

Approximate return to points of origin at 8:30 p.m..
