Day 1 | Highlights:

Welcome to Nuremberg. Transfer to your Emerald Waterways luxury river cruise ship and be welcomed by your Captain and crew. The city is situated along the Main–Danube canal, an engineering masterpiece linking the rivers of Germany with the mighty Danube which flows from the Alps to the Black Sea. Some of the locks are as high as 25 metres, with only inches on each side; the navigation of them showcases the Captain's skill. This evening enjoy your first dinner on board.


Day 2 | Bamberg Highlights:

Relax on board this morning as we cruise through the Main–Danube Canal, to Bamberg. Feel the magic of the past as you explore this UNESCO World Heritage city with your guide. Boasting one of Europe’s largest intact medieval town centres, Bamberg is bursting with character and charm. At the town centre is the largest preserved old quarter in Europe. Around 2,400 listed buildings and the centuries–old garden quarter form a special cultural heritage. Admire hundreds of building façades richly decorated in fascinating detail with spectacular ornamentation on your guided city tour. Perhaps try a smoked beer, a specialty brew considered a delicacy to the area. Tonight the Captain will be delighted to host a gala dinner.


Day 3 | Wurzburg Highlights:

Known as the “Pearl of the Romantic Road”, Würzburg is surrounded by sloping hills covered with vineyards. Visit the Bishops’ Residenz, one of Germany’s largest and most ornate baroque palaces and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your tour highlights the palace’s unique staircase, elaborate 18th century frescoes and the amazing 3–dimensional stuccowork.


Day 4 | Miltenberg Highlights:

Welcome to Miltenberg, a picturesque village on the Main River, which creates an imitable feeling of Bavarian life in medieval times due to the Old Town being lined with well-preserved half-timbered buildings. The gothic Merchant Hall is an impressive symbol of past affluence created by trade from river traffic. Take a guided tour of Miltenberg. Emerald Active: Guided hike to Wertheim Castle (active fitness level recommended – actual hike).


Day 5 | Koblenz Highlights:

Cruise to the 2000 year old town of Koblenz, which is situated at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. Enjoy a guided walking tour before free time to wander through the town and take in the views from the cable car. Sail through the spectacular Rhine Gorge, passing through countless castles and vineyards as well as the infamous Lorelei statue and Pflazgrafenstein Castle, which was built on an island in the middle of the river as a medieval toll station. Countless vineyards and medieval castles line the shores of this section of the river, with photo opportunities at every bend.


Day 6 | Traben Trarbach - Bernkastel Highlights:

Dating back to 3000BC, Bernkastel is situated along the banks of the Moselle River and home to well-preserved buildings dating back to 1416. Arrive into Bernkastel and enjoy an afternoon guided walking tour, stroll through the medieval marketplace with its gabled timber-framed houses, castle ruins and town gate. Historically a winegrowing town, vines cover the steep-slopes surrounding the village. Emerald Plus: Wine Tasting. This evening the Captain will be delighted to welcome you to the Captain’s Farewell Dinner.

Day 7 | Bernkastel - Trier Highlights:

This morning travel by coach to Trier where you can explore the ruins of the old city baths, once a hive of activity during ancient times and the Porta Nigra, the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps on your guided walking tour of Trier. Return to enjoy lunch on the ship before you have the afternoon free to enjoy time at leisure in Bernkastel.


Day 8 | Bernkastel – Disembarkation Highlights:

Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours

Sightseeing in Europe

It is impossible for large coaches to be used for some city sightseeing. Many towns and cities will be visited by way of walking tours and accordingly, a reasonable level of fitness is required. Europe is based on a myriad of old buildings and there are split-levels, steps and uneven surfaces everywhere so please watch your step! Due to the structure of old buildings, access to some establishments may not be convenient for wheelchair use, and facilities for the disabled in general may be limited. High-heeled shoes are not suitable for cobblestone streets and steep inclines in medieval towns and cities. It is essential to have comfortable, rubber-soled walking shoes.

Travel with an Open Mind

During your travels you will encounter new customs and different ways of life. Appreciate and enjoy these differences as this is one of the highlights of travelling. Be mindful that meals on tour will often reflect the local cuisine and delicacies, which may be different to what you are normally accustomed to. Your dining experiences are certain to enhance your tour and introduce you to the local region and culture.
