Itinerary

Day 1
Embarkation in Basel.

Day 2
Arrival in Strasbourg in the morning. In the morning you will visit the capital of Alsace. The afternoon *Alsace excursion takes you along the lovely Alsatian wine route by bus to Colmar. The city is enchanting with its numerous half-timbered houses and the Petite Venise district. Late in the evening, you will continue your journey from Strasbourg.

Day 3
Early morning arrival in the imperial city of Speyer, one of the oldest cities in Germany, which you can get to know today on a *visit. The imperial cathedral of Speyer, St. Marien, is the largest, still preserved Romanesque church building in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981. After the board lunch you undertake a *bus excursion into one of the most beautiful cities of Germany, to Heidelberg. Idyllically situated on the Neckar River, the old town is the epitome of „German Romanticism“. After a tour of the city, you will board your ship again in Mannheim.

Day 4
*Ruedesheim is a world famous town, which is known for its wine production, especially for Rieslings. The „Winzerexpress“ takes you to the centre of the town, where you visit „Siegfrieds Mechanical Musiccabinett“ with its collection of mechanical organs and musical instruments. Afterwards there is time for a stroll through the Drosselgasse. Towards noon the boat sets off and glides along the varied banks of the Rhine in the direction of Koblenz. In addition to numerous castles, the famous Loreley rock is also passed. In the afternoon you finally arrive in Koblenz, situated at the confluence of the Moselle and Rhine rivers, which you explore on a *city tour.

Day 5
Today the program includes the city of Cologne. On a *tour you get to know the heart of Cologne including the world-famous Cologne Cathedral. The afternoon is spent on board while the ship glides towards the German-Dutch border.

Day 6
Enjoy a relaxing day on board. The varied shoreline landscape of the Dutch and Belgian waterways will not leave you bored. In the late afternoon, the ship moors in the Belgian diamond city of Antwerp.

Day 7
In the morning you take a *bus excursion to Mechelen, where you feel, quite rightly, like in a Renaissance open-air museum. The St. Rombouts Tower, the Belfry of the Lakenhalle and the Great Beguinage are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The afternoon will be devoted to *sightseeing in Antwerp. The city has the second largest seaport in Europe, but can also look back on a rich past. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Antwerp was one of the largest cities in the world, an important commercial metropolis and an inspiring cultural centre.

Day 8
Disembarkation in Amsterdam after breakfast.
