Christmas markets guided rail tours

The 6th December is St Nikolaus Eve, when German children leave polished shoes outside their bedroom door in the hope that Weihnachtsmann will have filled them with treats come morning. In Luxembourg children wait for Klees'chen but in parts of France it is Saint Nicolas who fills the shoes with sweets and small toys. This region of the world has some of the best Christmas markets by rail and starting from late November children step incredibly cautiously around their parents. Not for fear that they won't receive their presents but if they misbehave then Black Peter or Père Fouettard will take them away on Christmas Eve.
