NEW: Rhine Christmas Frankfurt 2024

Itinerary

Route of the river cruise on the Rhine
Route of the river cruise on the Rhine

Here we start the contemplative Christmas cruise on the Rhine. But you should also get to know the cathedral city with its many buildings and attractions. The best way is to arrive already relaxed one day before your cruise or simply extend your stay after the cruise.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

You will spend Christmas Eve in the center of Rhine Romanticism, which once inspired poets and musicians. For example, Brahms composed his 3rd symphony in Rüdesheim. From a cultural point of view, the most famous place in the Rheingau has a lot to offer, including historic aristocratic courts and fortifications. And of course, on this day of your Christmas cruise on the Rhine, the coffee speciality "Rüdesheimer Kaffee", invented here, should not be missed.

Frankfurt

Dep 03:00 pm

You will spend Christmas Day in Germersheim near the over 2000 year old city of Speyer. Speyer is considered the oldest planned city of the Middle Ages on German soil. The cathedral is the most important building of Speyer, one of the most famous High Romanesque cathedrals in Germany, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Mainz

Arr 08:00 pm

On Boxing Day, you will reach the metropolis of Strasbourg on your Christmas cruise on the Rhine. This is where the big European politics take place. Strasbourg shines with its medieval half-timbered houses and elegant city palaces. Highlight: The Strasbourg Cathedral. From the viewing platform, the half-timbered houses look like a model railway landscape. Enjoy the day in the French part of the Rhine.

Mainz

Dep 03:00 pm

Mainz bleibt Mainz (or ‘Mainz is always Mainz’) is more than a carnival motto. It is an expression of the easy-going way of life that makes the locals proud of their city, makes it easy for non-locals to settle in and helps visitors to enjoy their stay here. With 2,000 years of history, Mainz is not just one of the oldest cities in Germany – it is also a place where you can see history come alive wherever you turn.

Koblenz

Arr 09:00 pm

On your Christmas cruise discover the city of Koblenz with its sights and cultural offerings - one of the most beautiful and oldest cities in Germany with over 2000 years of history. The castles, former aristocratic courts and stately town houses, narrow streets and romantic corners of the city are waiting for your visit. With our A-ROSA ship we sail directly past the famous Deutsches Eck.

Your contemplative Christmas cruise on the Rhine comes to an end in Cologne. However, before you start your journey home with a thousand memories of your trip, why not use the day to look around further in North Rhine-Westphalia or to explore the cathedral city. Once in Kölle, you should also have visited the cathedral. Have a happy new year, see you soon and Ahoy!

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

In Köln geht Ihre besinnliche Weihnachtskreuzfahrt auf dem Rhein 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. Einen guten Rutsch in das neue Jahr, bis bald und Ahoi!
