Three-Rivers Cruise

2025

2024


AmsterdamNuremberg

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.

Itinerary

Historic Amsterdam, the famous capital of the Netherlands, is the starting point of your European cruise. After embarkation, enjoy a Welcome Cocktail and savor fabulous dishes at the Welcome Dinner. At the end of the day a rousing performance by a traditional shanty choir completes the experience.

Stay Amsterdam

Over Night

Excursions

In the morning, enjoy a cruise along the famous Amsterdam canals, followed by a trip to the beautiful Waterland region with historic fishing villages and peaceful countryside. Waterland is the ‘wet back garden of Amsterdam’. This rural area has a truly ancient Dutch landscape: perfectly flat, with old ‘polders’, lush green pastures, winding dikes and working windmills. Rejoin your ship in Utrecht for lunch.

11:30am - 12:30pm

In the morning, discover the highlights of Cologne on the guided city tour. End with a glass of typical Kölsch, a famed Rhineland beer. After lunch, nature enthusiasts may wish to partake in the excursion to the Siebengebirge National Park, Germany’s first nature reserve, and Drachenfels castle ruins. With the Rhine sprawling below in all its splendor, the views from the top of the castle ruins are stunning. After an exciting day, return to the vessel to continue south along the river.

Stay Cologne

10:00am - 8:00pm

Excursions

The morning starts on a high note with the passage of the Lorelei in the myth-enshrouded Upper Middle Rhine Valley. At lunchtime, the vessel arrives in Rüdesheim,

a picturesque wine-making town in the Rhine Gorge where the river landscape has enchanted visitors for centuries, and is protected by UNESCO since 2002. 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 of the region and stroll along the famous quaint “Drosselgasse“, a 144 m (472 ft) cobbled street lined with timber-framed buildings and many traditional restaurants.

Stay Ruedesheim

12:00pm - 3:00pm

Excursions

After a tranquil morning on board, join the afternoon excursion to Miltenberg and Wertheim. Miltenberg, the „Pearl of the Main River“, is a town flanked by the river Main with an incredible, forested hillside, and features Miltenberg castle and one of the oldest inns in Germany, the Hotel “Zum Riesen“.

Continue to Wertheim and explore the medieval streets with their half-timbered houses and the unique glass museum, that invites visitors on a tour of the 3,000 year history of glass. This evening, join your new friends for another memorable meal as the ship plies the waters towards our next stop.

Today, visit Würzburg, a city in Bavaria known for lavish architecture, located in the center of the Franconian wine country.

Excursions

Spend the morning cruising the scenic Main river. After lunch, arrive in the imperial city of Bamberg, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site which retains its medieval layout of three settlement areas, along with its historic buildings and Baroque façades. Bamberg is ranked as one of Germany’s most attractive towns and known for its deliciously smoky beer and stuffed onions. This German town is also the place to begin your crossing of the Rhine-Main-Danube canal.

This evening, join a presentation about the Main-Danube canal, which allows free flow of traffic between the North Sea and the Black Sea. It is your last night aboard, so let our Chefs delight you with their culinary magic at the Captain’s Gala Dinner.
