Part 4: Germany and Austria

When it comes to traditional holiday images, Germany's Bavaria is the heartland. Here we'll savor classic holiday themes: glittering trees, old-time carols, and colorful Christmas markets. Across the border in Austria, Salzburg celebrates the holidays with an alpine elegance as Christmas shopping lanes delight browsers, and locals mix worship with glorious music.

Part 3: France

In the dark of winter, Paris' best loved icon, the Eiffel Tower, brilliantly heralds this happy season, its biggest department stores dress up the streets, and all along the Champs Elysees a festive force of twinkling trees light the grandest boulevard in Europe. From Paris to Burgundy, Christmas is the stuff of dreams, where rich sounds of medieval carols abound, simple rituals are shared by families and friends, and where, when days are short and nights are long, it's customary to leave a light in the window.

Part 1: Christmas Story and England

While each European country gives Christmas its own special twist, they all follow the same story of how the son of God was born on earth, as told in the Bible and illustrated over the centuries by great artists. In this segment of Rick Steves' European Christmas, we begin where the Christmas story begins: with the Annunciation of Mary and the birth of Christ. We'll also experience the local Christmas traditions of Bath and London, England, from choirs and caroling, to mince pie, Father Christmas, and more.
