You’ll be introduced to the best of some of Germany’s most celebrated cities, with guided tours of Cologne, Koblenz and Strasbourg included. Take an excursion to historic Heidelberg, the oldest university town in Germany and sail through the breathtakingly beautiful Rhine Gorge, where rolling hills and commanding castles all vie for your attention. At either end of your itinerary, the cosmopolitan Swiss city of Basel and the legendary capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, are both yours to explore.
