Wow what an incredible experience!
We flew into Amsterdam and were met and transferred by APT to our beautiful APT ship the Amadante where we started our adventure cruising on the Rhine and the Main down to Nuremburg.
When you are cruising along the Rhine, where ever you look on either side of the river are incredible castles.
Along the way we stopped at many beautiful small towns and had the opportunity to do walking tours, or if you didn’t feel like that you could just find a nice place to sit down and watch the world go by.
Cologne & Andernach are beautiful towns right on the water. They have lots of cafes along the river, amazing architecture and a fabulous chocolate shop!
Rudesheim- quaint little town with Siegfried Musical cabinet.
Miltenberg – medieval ½ timbered houses and home of one of the oldest pubs in Germany.
Rothenburg – town completely surrounded by its old city wall fantastic to walk around– home to Germanys famous and original Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas Store.
Bamberg – free time to meander around the town, many bridges and lots of shops.
Nuremberg – try the Lebkuchen (gingerbread) fantastic!!! – We had a great day tour here visiting a beautiful castle inside the old town/medieval part of Nuremberg and the modern history of Hiltlers party rally grounds.
River cruising in Europe is such a relaxing way to experience the sights of Europe. You will come home with some amazing memories- and feel relaxed. But there is also plenty to do for those who wish to be active!
