Rhine Mini Cruise Netherlands 2022

Itinerary

Mini Cruise
Route of the river cruise on the rhine

We will set off on our exciting Rhine cruise from here, heading for the northern or the southern Rhine. But you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this cathedral city, with its wealth of monuments and attractions. The best way is to arrive the day before your cruise departs, so that you can relax – or simply extend your stay in Cologne after the cruise has ended.

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

Amsterdam is an incredibly varied city. It’s old yet modern, relaxed yet bustling, and arty while also being commercial. With almost 7,500 listed buildings, it has the highest concentration of historical monuments in the whole country. When your Rhine cruise calls at Amsterdam, you’ll be able to discover a piece of history around every corner.

A canal tour though Amsterdam’s historical centre is a very special experience. As the boat glides slowly through the water, picturesque house fronts, narrow lanes and magnificent historical buildings drift by. And you’ll pass under many handsome bridges that look particularly stunning in the twilight. The extensive network of historic canals covers around 100 kilometres in total. Amsterdam is particularly lovely in the evening, when thousands upon thousands of lights are reflected on the water.

Rotterdam is the second-largest city in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam. Known as ‘Manhattan on the Maas’, it has a more urban, international atmosphere than anywhere else in the whole country. In recent years, Rotterdam has become a centre for architecture – its large architect-designed houses testament to the city’s modernity. With a little luck, you’ll see other cruise ships during your day in Rotterdam, since Europe’s largest maritime port is a major transport hub.

Capital of the province Zuid-Holland, and the seat of the Dutch government and parliament, as well as home to the Dutch royal family - The Hague is world famous. The excursion first takes you to the Binnenhof, the impressive main square which dominates the historic city centre. This large rectangular courtyard is surrounded by stately buildings and was the starting point of urban development in the 13th century. In the 17th century, it was considered the centre of European diplomacy and today it is the seat of the Dutch Parliament. Northeast of the square there is the Royal Palace and official residence of the Queen. Behind that you will find the Vredespaleis (Palace of Peace), home to the International Court of Justice. Then continue to Delft, famous for the porcelain Delfts Blauw and for its painter Johannes Vermeer. Here you have time for a leisurely walk along the canals, churches, mansions and beautiful courtyards.

While it’s true that Rotterdam can look back on a long history, the city gives an outward impression of being refreshingly modern. Rotterdam is the Netherlands’ main centre of architecture – over the last 20 years an impressive collection of skyscrapers has transformed its skyline. The 46-metre-high Witte Huis was the first skyscraper in Europe, and there’s no denying that the city’s famous Cube Houses are unique too. Of course, during your visit you’ll also see the extraordinary market hall building, which is shaped like a giant aircraft hangar. The interior of the market hall boasts an 11,000-square-metre artwork made up of panels decorated with images of fruit and vegetables. Another thing that makes the building unique is that, as well as housing a market, shops, eateries and a car park, it also has residential units.

Did you know that Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands? You only need to cross the Waalburg arch bridge into the centre to understand why the 160,000 inhabitants are so proud of their city: the Waalkade wharf and the silhouette of the city-centre buildings combine to form a truly impressive sight. In this Hanseatic city, tradition and modernity go hand in hand. Discover this wonderful spot directly from your A-ROSA ship during your Rhine cruise.

The Hanseatic city of Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands. Its history goes back to Roman times. Later, the city repeatedly became the imperial residence (during the Carolingian period), as well as a part of the Hanseatic League. In 1678, the Treaty of Peace of Nijmegen between France and the Netherland was signed here. The central old town is especially worth a visit today. You will explore the old town during this guided city walk, where you will also see the St. Stevenskerk, the Belvedère, the Latijnse School and the Grote Markt.

Pancakes are another typical Dutch delicacy, along with chips and cheese. In Nijmegen we take you on the Pannenkoekenboat, on the Waal. While the nature area of the Ooijpolder, the city and the bridges of Nijmegen pass by, you can feast on the indulgent pancakes. From baked bacon, cheese, apple, icing sugar or sirop, everything is included! Don't worry if you can't make a decision when choosing, in the next round you can just choose another pancake and enjoy it.
