Day 2 - Amsterdam / Utrecht

This morning’s city tour of Amsterdam includes a canal boat tour — the ideal way to explore this charming, colourful capital. Full of canals and cafés, houseboats and bicycles, with masterpieces of art and architecture at every corner, Amsterdam is truly a city like no other. From its roots as a small fishing village, it rose to become a world power during the Dutch Golden Age, the leading center for finance and diamonds. Today it remains one of the world’s most vibrant cities, home to more than 170 different nationalities.

Leaving Amsterdam, we’ll cruise toward the border of Holland and Germany with a brief stop in Utrecht. On-board this evening, enjoy a traditional Dutch folklore show as we cruise into Germany.

Day 3 - Cologne, Germany

Enjoy the passing scenery today as we cruise toward Cologne, Germany’s fourth-largest city and an important trading center since Roman times. Keep an eye open as Cologne Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Germany’s most visited landmark, looms to greet us. The largest Gothic church in Northern Europe, the cathedral’s treasures draw more visitors than any other historic site in Germany — its celebrated Shrine of the Three Kings is said to contain the remains of the Three Wise Men.

We’ll explore the Cathedral and see the city’s other highlights on a guided walking tour, As an exclusive Amras highlight you will visit a local brewery and learn about the famous Kolsch beer which is a symbol of Cologne and sample the different varieties. The afternoon is free to explore further on your own.

Day 4 - The Rhine Gorge: Koblenz to Rüdesheim, Germany

Next you are in for what is undoubtedly the highlight of every Rhine cruise: a journey through the fabled Rhine Gorge, one of the most picture-perfect stretches of river in all of Europe, with hilltop castles, terraced vineyards, and wonderfully preserved medieval villages. In fact, the entire Upper Middle Rhine Valley has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site — an ideal blend of man made marvels and dramatic physical beauty that has been a major tourist attraction since the Romantics made it all the rage in the 19th century, Works like Heinrich Heine’s famous poem, Lorelei, and Richard Wagner’s opera, Gotterdammerung, were inspired here — as you are sure to be as you cruise past the Lorelei Rock. You’ll learn about the legend of the Lorelei and her siren song that lured unwary sailors and feel the power of the looming Rock as we glide safely on our way.

After we arrive in Rüdesheim, a guided tour includes a visit to Siegfried’s Mechanical Musikkabinett, a fascinating collection of self-playing musical instruments. If you prefer, set off and explore Rüdesheim on your own, perhaps strolling along the Drosselgasse, the lively 15th-century street of restaurants and wine taverns running through the heart of the Old Town, or setting off on one of the ship’s complimentary bicycles to see a little of the countryside like one of the locals.

Day 5 - Miltenberg / Wertheim

Today we leave the Rhine to cruise the Main River, delving deeper into the heart of the region called Franconia. Known to the Romans as “Moenus” and called “Meune” in the epic poem Song of the Nibelungs, the Main (pronounced “Mine”) carries travellers through a breathtakingly beautiful landscape and literally back in time, from modern Mainz to traditional, medieval towns where wine and leather goods are still the primary trades and castles, churches, and picturesque ruins dot the hillsides.

Here we’ll explore two picturesque Bavarian villages that have thrived on income from river traffic: Miltenberg and Wertheim. On a guided walk through Miltenberg you’ll see ample evidence of its affluence through the ages, from its lovely medieval and Renaissance homes to the Gothic splendor of its Merchant Hall. Later we’ll walk through neighboring Wertheim, with its overlapping, half-timbered houses, winding streets, and shops filled with art made by the town’s glassblowers, famed around the world for their beautiful Christmas decorations and distinctive round, flattened glass bottles in which the local Franconian wines are sold.

Day 6 - Würzburg / Rothenburg

All the pomp and pageantry of medieval Europe come alive today in beautiful Würzburg, the Pearl of Germany’s Romantic Road. Surrounded by sloping hills covered with vineyards, crowned by the ancient stones of Marienberg Fortress, Wurzburg is where the powerful prince-bishops of the 18th century built their “Franconian Rome,” a city of wealth and beauty. The highlight of our guided tour here is a visit to the magnificent Residenz, a UNESCO World Heritage treasure considered one of the most important baroque palaces in Europe. A synthesis of German, Imperial, and French architectural styles, the result is an utterly unique masterpiece. The palace’s sweeping staircase and breathtaking ceiling frescoes by Tiepolo miraculously survived the bombs which leveled much of Würzburg at the end of World War II — the meticulous reconstruction of this beautiful and historic city is literally a story you must see to believe!

From Wurzburg we set off on an excursion along Germany’s famous Romantic Road to Rothenburg, known as Europe’s “most fairy-tale town,” with its Gothic cathedral, towered walls, and gabled houses, for a walking tour followed by some time at leisure. Back on-board ship this evening, gather to celebrate your Rhine adventures at the Captain’s Gala Dinner.

Day 7 - Bamberg

It’s possible you might recognise our destination today, even if you have never been here before — picture-perfect Bamberg is the epitome of a prosperous medieval town, its entire Old Town a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On our guided tour we’ll explore the town’s historic sites, including the 17th-century Neue Residenz, former home of Bamberg’s powerful bishops, and the stunning 11th-century cathedral that holds the tomb of Pope Clement II. If you wish, feel free to explore Bamberg’s charms further on your own: a stroll through the romantically lit streets offers a rare chance to step back in time, and beer lovers won’t want to miss their chance to sample the local specialty, the unique smokey brew called Rauchbier.

Day 9 & 10 - Prague

Prague is among the favorite city destinations in Europe. Once the capital of the Roman Empire, Prague was founded more than 1,100 years ago and it features many historic attractions and buildings which survived destruction during the World Wars. Prague is a multi-cultural city full of art and unique architecture including the imposing Prague Castle, the unique Astronomical Clock, the historic Charles Bridge, the innovative Dancing House, Stiassny's Jubilee Synagogue, and many more. It is also home for a touching testimony of Jewish history and culture. This morning explore Prague’s Castle District & its St Vitus Cathedral. The afternoon is free for independent pursuits before joining your fellow travellers for a farewell dinner. The next morning we check out of the hotel and bid farewell to the Enchanting Rivers of Europe.
