Explore Medieval Germany, cruising the Main and mighty Danube rivers. Enjoy a leisurely start with time to explore the pretty town of Mainz, known for its stunning Romanesque cathedral and timber-clad buildings, sitting in the very scenic heart of Germany’s famous winelands. Your cruise along the Main, takes you firstly to peaceful Miltenberg, a fantastically well-preserved village set against a spectacular backdrop of lush green forests and rolling hillsides.
Then it’s on to delightful Wertheim, off the well-trodden tourist trail, its ancient castle standing proud over the colourful market square below. Further wonders are uncovered as the ship arrives in Wurzburg, an elegant Bavarian city, crowned by the stunning Baroque palace, a relic of a bygone age. Take the Romantic Road to Rothenburg on an optional tour for spectacular views of the river winding through the hills. The beauty of Bamberg never fails to enchant as the cruise arrives in undoubtedly one of Europe’s most beautiful historic towns.
More picture-perfect views await as you wake in historic Nuremberg, synonymous with the Second World War, but today an intriguing and stunning city once again with its ornate Gothic church and bustling market, a fitting end to this magical cruise along one of Europe’s most spectacular waterways.
