Primrose Bank Cruise line set sail for Germany

Last weekend we had a successful trip to Germany for the German Christmas markets.
The day consisted of VR headsets around the famous sites in Germany, followed by Cuckoo clock making and stein decorating.

Lunch was traditional German fayre of jager snitzel followed by heise Kirchen mit kirsh.

The afternoon brought our very own German Christmas Market, featuring a variety of stalls, such as Hunca Munka artisan soaps and bath treats and the delicious Lancashire Shortbread.
The Market was brought to a close with mugs of gluhwein and hog roast sandwiches.

Our final stop in Germany was at “Primel Brau” as we transformed the dining room into a traditional bierkeller for an evening of beer tasting.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the Christmas markets and everyone who came along to enjoy the day with us.
