Once upon Three Rivers: the Rhine, Moselle & Main


cruise: WNR 8 Day River Cruise Nuremberg to Remich
This Central European river cruise will take you across Germany to Luxembourg on the Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers. You will embark on your river cruise in Nuremberg, Germany, and sail through the fascinating Main Danube Canal to Bamberg. Marvel at the 13th-century Romanesque cathedral and the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall)—built on an island in the middle of the Regnitz River. You’ll also stop in Wurzburg, the “Pearl of the Romantic Road” and see the magnificent baroque Bishop’s Residenz and the largest ceiling fresco ever painted. There will be many historical sites to see, but you’ll also have time to relax, do some shopping, and stop in a Konditorei (German pastry and coffee shop) for a delicious local favourite and experience a German afternoon tradition!

Your river cruise will continue through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, considered the most enchanting view of the Rhine River. See ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Get a chance to try some of the best wines Germany has to offer in the wine village of Bernkastel, home to Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards. This beautiful area will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses which have been standing since the Middle Ages. The opportunities to be swept away are countless on this fabulous river cruise vacation as you make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge, with stone pilings dating from 144-152 AD.
