Excursions during your A-ROSA River Cruise

A pond full of water lilies. The Japanese bridge over there. Suddenly you realise that you’re standing in the middle of one of the world’s most valuable paintings. A real-life version of the painting. What an overwhelming view at Monet’s “Water Lilies".

Some of our excursions will take you to the places where some of the greatest artists of the 19th and 20th centuries created their works. Not only art lovers, but also history buffs and fans of adventure stories will be in their element. Medieval castles, monasteries and villages are ready to tell their stories. Our expert guides know more than any guide book about the Eiffel Tower, Empress Elisabeth’s life, Cologne Cathedral and Rotterdam’s hyper-modern architecture. Do you fancy admiring the white horses of the Camargue from a jeep? Want to ride on a horse-drawn waggon through the Puszta? Travel to the Budapest Parliament by segway? The sights you’ll encounter on our routes are world-famous. By offering our guests special ways of discovering these sights, we open up completely new perspectives for you. A-ROSA excursions delight not only guests with a hunger for new experiences and a thirst for knowledge; gourmets will also have their fill of treats. Our tours for connoisseurs offer regional cuisine with local specialities and world-famous vineyards with fine wines. Because all senses matter when it comes to new perspectives.
