The Upper Rhine to the City of Music from Zürich to Vienna
2013 / 2014
12 days from Zürich to Vienna
Four countries, three rivers, and the impressive Main Danube Canal are the basis of this delightful river cruise vacation. Start in Zürich, Switzerland, then travel to Basel to embark your river cruise vessel. Enjoy guided sightseeing in Strasbourg, Würzburg, Bamberg, Regensburg, and Passau. From Mannheim, you have a choice of excursions—you can go to Heidelberg to see its imposing castle ruins or to Speyer to see its Romanesque cathedral. A stop in Melk includes a visit to the beautiful Benedictine Abbey. Guided orientations of the smaller towns show off their famous sights, and time in Nuremberg includes the chance to sample some of Germany’s world-famous beers. Your journey concludes in Vienna with guided sightseeing and time at leisure to explore this extraordinary “City of Music” on your own.
