The bus ride from the ship’s mooring point to the centre of Bavaria’s second-largest city takes a few minutes. Nuremberg’s principal landmark – the distinctive Imperial Castle – towers above the city, dominating its skyline. This castle, where all of the Holy Roman Emperors from 1050 to 1571 stayed at one time or another, is one of the most important imperial palaces of the Middle Ages. Your tour will begin with a bus transfer into the centre of Nuremberg. The old town has retained its character despite having sustained heavy damage in World War Two. During a walking tour you’ll see sights such as the medieval city walls – one of the most important fortifications in Europe – plus the churches of Saint Lawrence and Saint Sebald. The Handwerkerhof (craftsmen’s courtyard) offers traditional handicrafts and Franconian hospitality against a charming backdrop.

Bamberg’s unmistakeable cityscape is an architectural masterpiece that took 1,000 years to create. Overlooked by its unique cathedral, Bamberg is a work of art in and of itself, with a wealth of listed buildings that bring together the Gothic and bourgeois baroque styles. This old Franconian seat of bishops and emperors dazzles visitors with its splendid cathedral, its churches and monasteries, its bridges, alleyways and squares, and its half-timbered houses and baroque facades.

Today your romantic river cruise will stop off in Würzburg. This old seat of bishops straddles the River Main. As a university city, Würzburg has an excellent reputation. A centre of Franconian winemaking, it is also the economic hub of Lower Franconia. The city is dominated by its medieval fortress, the Marienberg. A varied visit awaits you here!

On this excursion you will first discover the old town during a city walk. Afterwards a bus will take you up to the Marienberg Fortress, the widely visible and prominent landmark of Würzburg. Originally, the fortress served as a Celtic refuge castle which was built around 704. Later, the first church of Würzburg was built here and in the early 13th century the first fortified castle was added, which was rebuilt several times during the Renaissance and Baroque time.

With its well-preserved city wall, narrow alleyways, richly decorated half-timbered houses and picturesque market square, Wertheim is quaint and relatively authentic. The ruined castle, perched on a hill, is one of the largest of its kind in Germany. In his 1862 account of the Main region, Karl Baedeker describes Wertheim as the high point of the entire trip. You can put this claim to the test yourself during your Rhine cruise.

Your berth in Wertheim is located only a few minutes’ walk away from the centre of the medieval town of Wertheim. Once 18 city gates served as the entrée and you will enter the town through one of these historic city gates before strolling through the market square and admiring the Angel Fountain and the Protestant Collegiate Church and finally arriving at the glass museum. Here you will learn many interesting facts about the production and the use of glass from antiquity to modern times. One of the glassblowers will also demonstrate the art of glass blowing.

Welcome to Goethe’s birthplace! Here’s another historical fact while we’re at it: this is where the first German national assembly met in 1848. Today, the metropolis on the Main is home to the headquarters of major banks and is also one of Germany’s most important centres of business and commerce. Frankfurt is also known for its many futuristic-looking high-rises. You’ll get a closer view of them when your Rhine cruise takes you along the Main river.

The skyline, its old town, apple cider - Frankfurt does not fit into any one category. And that's great, because contrasts are exciting. This combination of a city walk and a bus tour takes you to modern boulevards and along the mighty bank skyscrapers, to the quaint district of Sachsenhausen with its apple wine taverns and the historic Römerberg (Roman Mountain). The eponymous 'Roman' has been the city hall since the 15th century. No less impressive is the Baroque Hauptwache (Main Guard House), the Old Opera and the magnificent neoclassical rotunda of St. Paul's Church.

The breath-taking cable car ride across the Rhine and up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress should not be missed: Behind you the roofs of Koblenz, below you the broad river and in front of you the gigantic fortress Ehrenbreitstein. This adjective is by no means an exaggeration, as you will be entering the second largest preserved fortress in Europe. Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III ordered the construction as part of an anti-French military line. Up to 6,500 craftsmen and day labourers were employed. The mighty fortress rises 118 metres above the Rhine and was once the core of the fortification around Koblenz. Together with the Deutsches Eck (German Corner), it forms the northern gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Afterwards we will walk through the old town back to the ship.

In Köln geht Ihre aufregende Rhein-Kreuzfahrt zu Ende. Bevor Sie jedoch mit tausend Erinnerungen an Ihre Reise die Heimreise antreten, nutzen Sie doch noch den Tag, um sich in Nordrhein-Westfalen weiter umzusehen oder die Domstadt zu erkunden. Einmal in Kölle, sollte man auch den Dom besucht haben. Bis bald und Ahoi!
