    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Sunday, September 22, 2024 Basel, Switzerland Embark 9:00 PM
    View of Basel, Switzerland

    Basel on the river Rhine is Switzerland's third most populous city, and located where the Swiss, French and German borders meet. Indeed, the river cruise ships berth within a stone’s throw of the triple intersection. It has suburbs in France and Germany, and interestingly the language spoken is called Basel German.

    2 Monday, September 23, 2024 Breisach, Germany 12:00 AM 12:00 AM

    The German town of Breisach is situated along the Rhine River on the French and German border, about halfway between Freiburg and Colma. During WWII 85% of Breisach was destroyed and the early 13th century cathedral of St Stephansmünster was heavily damaged. Fortunately it is a great place to visit as it has since been restored with many of its remarkable features still intact. Read more about Breisach, Germany

    3 Tuesday, September 24, 2024 Strasbourg, France 12:00 AM 12:00 AM

    Strasbourg, France’s great north-eastern metropolis and the intellectual and cultural capital of Alsace, is the ultimate European city. It has flavours of both France and Germany, and sits astride the border of the two countries. Today the residents have mixed feelings about their ‘Frenchness’ or ‘Germanness’, with many agreeing they are not either French or German, but a bit of both. Read more about Strasbourg, France

    4 Wednesday, September 25, 2024 Speyer, Germany 12:00 AM 12:00 AM

    Speyer (aka Spires), located on the river Rhine, is one of Germany’s oldest cities dating back to pre-Roman times. The city is dominated by the architecturally significant Speyer Cathedral, where beneath the high altar are the tombs of eight Holy Roman emperors and German kings. Today it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Read more about Speyer, Germany

    5 Wednesday, September 25, 2024 Rudesheim, Germany 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of Rudesheim, Germany

    Rüdesheim lies in the heart of the Rhine River area at the southern entrance to the Lorelei valley. It is well known for the Drosselgasse, just 144m long, the pedestrian street at the heart of the city's old town. It is full of beautifully decorated restaurants, live band entertainment, and open air garden taverns that are always thoroughly enjoyed by visitors. Read more about Rudesheim, Germany

    6 Thursday, September 26, 2024 Middle Rhine Scenic Sailing
    7 Thursday, September 26, 2024 Koblenz, Germany 12:00 AM 12:00 AM

    Koblenz (aka Coblenz, Coblence) is one of the largest cities on the Rhine River in Germany and is situated on both banks of the Rhine at its junction with the Moselle. In 55 BC Roman troops commanded by Julius Caesar reached the Rhine, and the remains of a large bridge built by them in 49 AD are still visible. That the historical pattern of French occupation over the centuries has now completely ended, is encapsulated in the imposing William1st Monument that is a nationalistic declaration of the German refusal of any French claims to the area, and to German unity.

    8 Friday, September 27, 2024 Cologne, Germany 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of Cologne, Germany

    Cologne, situated on the River Rhine and Germany’s fourth largest city, was recognised by the Romans as a major centre for their trade routes. Subsequently, considerable Roman remains can be found in contemporary Cologne, especially near the wharf area, where a notable discovery of a 1900 year old Roman boat was made in late 2007. Due to WWII air raids, today Cologne is notable for its simple and modest post-war buildings, but fortunately is still home to a few interspersed pre-war buildings that were reconstructed due to their historical importance.

    9 Saturday, September 28, 2024 Scenic Sailing: Waal & Merwede
    10 Saturday, September 28, 2024 Kinderdijk, Netherlands 12:00 AM 12:00 AM

    Kinderdijk is a small village at a distance of only 16 km from Rotterdam and a little less than 10 km from the city border of the oldest city in Holland, Dordrecht. It lies at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. The local scenery is spectacular, perhaps viewed from a hop-on-hop-off canal tour. Read more about Kinderdijk, Netherlands

    11 Sunday, September 29, 2024 Amsterdam, Netherlands 2:00 AM Disembark
    View of Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Originally a dam in the river Amstel, Amsterdam today is the capital and largest city of the Netherlands, as engineered dams, sea gates, and the 19-mile dyke walling out the Zuider Zee prevent this low-lying country from being reclaimed by the North Sea. Interestingly, the 17th century canals of Amsterdam located in the heart of the city have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The main tourist attractions are undoubtedly the famous Museums such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum. Read more about Amsterdam, Netherlands
