Grand German Sojourn


cruise: WAN 10 Day River Cruise Amsterdam to Nuremberg
For a grand view of many of the charming and captivating towns in Holland and Germany, you’ll cruise on the Rhine and Main Rivers from Amsterdam to Nuremberg. You’ll experience the color and character of Amsterdam with a guided canal cruise on its iconic waterways, then cruise on the Rhine River to Cologne—a dynamic and historic city with its signature gothic cathedral and soaring twin steeples. Take a guided tour of the city or choose a walking tour of Cologne’s historical Jewish sites. Cruising toward the splendid Rhine Gorge, stop in Rüdesheim—flanked by hillside vineyards and Rhine River shores. Visit the marvelous Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Museum for German ditties played by some of its 350 self-playing instruments. Your Rhine River cruise continues with visits to Mainz and Würzburg. From Frankfurt, take a guided excursion to magnificent Heidelberg Castle, then visit a Main River Village for a picturesque day in Bavaria. Würzburg will delight you with a guided tour of its Old Main Bridge, fortress, and frescoed ceiling of its baroque Bishop’s Residenz along the famed Romantic Road.
