Starting in Amsterdam, where guests can visit the Rijksmuseum or enjoy a guided bike tour, this classic voyage down the Rhine will take you onto Xanten, known for its Roman Archaeological Park. Then it’s on to Andernach for a visit to the Geysir Museum. A guided tour of Cochem takes you to the Imperial Reichsburg Castle for the epic finale to a day exploring the Medieval town’s hidden gems. Be guided through the streets of Bernkastel, with its sloping vineyards, and enjoy a wine tasting, before cruising back from the Moselle to the Rhine Valley for your transfer to Frankfurt and your return journey home.

Day 1 | Highlights:

Welcome to Amsterdam, a fascinating 700 year old city of picturesque canals, world class museums, theatres and cafés. You will be met and transferred from the airport to your Emerald Waterways luxury river cruise ship. This evening join your fellow travellers for dinner on board. Your Cruise Director will also conduct a port talk to review the activities and itinerary for the days ahead.


Day 2 | Amsterdam Highlights:

This morning you can decide to either enjoy a guided visit to the Rijksmuseum or a guided bike tour.

Cruise along the Rhine River to Xanten, where you will have a unique chance to visit the Roman Archaeological Park that was built around 98 A.D.  Some buildings have been partly reconstructed, while others have been rebuilt and furnished to give visitors an idea of what the settlement was like back in those days. Original remains of Roman buildings also remain intact.
