Amsterdam to Nuremberg - Rhine and Main Rivers


Day 1. Arrive Amsterdam

Fly from the UK to Amsterdam. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your river ship. Dock overnight allowing you ample time to explore the iconic sights at leisure. Tonight, enjoy a special Captain’s Welcome Reception.

Day 2. Amsterdam, Utrecht

Clustered by historic houses and studded with low bridges, Amsterdam’s network of 17th-century canals lends the city its nickname – ‘The Venice of the North’. Today, board a glass-top boat and glide past the city’s impressive waterside facades. Next, travel by coach via Rembrandt’s Windmill, immortalised in the artist’s paintings, to Utrecht. Tonight, enjoy a Gala Welcome Dinner.

Day 3. Bonn, Drachenburg Castle

Having entered Germany overnight, cruise through Cologne and be astounded by the magnificent twin spires of Cologne Cathedral on the river bank. Your cruise continues to Bonn, where you will be able to explore this picturesque city. One of Germany’s oldest cities, it was discovered in the first-century BC as a Roman settlement. Like a Local – ride a scenic funicular train to the hilltops and enjoy a visit to the majestic 19th-century Drachenburg Castle, a highly favoured local treasure. During your private tour, absorb the impeccable gardens and have your camera ready to capture the superb views of the surrounding valleys. This evening, enjoy a delicious dinner on board your river ship, then perhaps retreat to the lounge for a nightcap and reflect on the day’s incredible adventures.

Day 4. Rhine Gorge, Rüdesheim

Continue cruising to experience a true highlight of the holiday – cruising through the Rhine Gorge, considered by locals to be the most beautiful section of the Rhine River. Watch in awe as steep slopes covered in lush vineyards and dotted with ancient castles drift past, before your ship docks in Rüdesheim, a pretty Rhine Gorge wine town. Here, the Winzerexpress mini-train will take you through the town to Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum, which houses the most beautiful collection of automated musical instruments in Germany. From its dainty music boxes to an enormous orchestrion, you’re sure to gain a fascinating window into the history of these melodious creations.

Day 5. Wertheim

Alight your ship in the pretty Franconian town of Wertheim today. Like a Local – be greeted by Wertheim’s friendly residents and learn about their culture as you are welcomed into their homes for a cup of coffee and cake. Explore this evocative township perfectly positioned on the confluence of the Tauber and Main rivers, and discover its rich history dating back to the 7th century. Return to your ship and enjoy time at leisure as you glide along the beautiful Main River. Later this evening, enjoy a superb dinner on board your ship, then watch the glittering lights of medieval towns glide past as you cruise through the night. Along the Main River, your ship is able to cruise the entire journey with complete ease, courtesy of the ship passing through the Main River’s 34 large locks.

Day 6. Würzburg

Verdant hills and rich vineyards sit on the fringe of Würzburg, while the Main River is a prominent feature of this stunning city. The architectural beauty that further defines Würzburg is on show today as you visit Würzburg Residence, a magnificent palace with its grand staircase, chapel and grand salon. Here, a walk through the Court Garden is a delight for both nature and art lovers, with its terraced gardens and water basin encircled by stunning yew trees. Re-board your ship this afternoon and relax as you sail into the evening.

Day 7. Bamberg

One of the few German cities that wasn’t destroyed during World War II, World Heritage-listed Bamberg beckons this morning. You’ll gain a great local insight during a locally guided tour of the city centre. As you meander through the streets crisscrossed with canals, you’ll discover a range of historic churches and buildings, including the half-timbered cottages and postcard-perfect town hall on the River Regnitz. Later, your ship will reach the Main-Danube Canal. Having taken 32 years to construct, the canal links the North and Black seas and is recognised as a feat of modern engineering.

Day 8. Nuremberg, Depart Munich

This morning after a delicious breakfast on board, the time has arrived to say goodbye to your newfound friends, Tour Director and wonderful crew as you disembark your stylish river ship for the last time in Nuremberg. Upon disembarkation, you will then be transferred to the airport in Munich for your onward flight back to the UK.
