Three-Rivers Cruise

Amsterdam →  Nuremberg

8 Days

Get ready for an unforgettable European experience which fits the wonders of Dutch waterways, the Rhine, the Main and the Main-Danube Canal, all into one cruise.

Highlights of the itinerary are the capital city of Amsterdam with its many canals and bustling streets, the cathedral city of Cologne, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley and its incredible wealth of castles and winegrowing villages, the historic university city of Würzburg and the medieval town of Bamberg in Bavaria. Along the way, pass the Main-Danube canal, an engineering marvel completed in 1992 connecting the rivers through the heart of Europe.

Due to low clearance heights at bridges and locks on the river route between Frankfurt and Nuremberg, access to the sun deck might be restricted for safety reasons.

Discover the region’s rich history on a walking tour and admire the magical collection of instruments at the Music Cabinet Museum. Or take, instead, a tram ride through the vineyards of Rüdesheim on the “Wine Express”, enjoy some fine wine and stroll along the quaint “Drosselgasse”.

As an alternate excursion, join the trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, whose towers, city gates, walls, and half-timbered gables have remained unchanged since the Thirty Years’ War.
