8 Day Treasures of the Rhine – Nuremberg to Amsterdam

Your wonderful river cruise begins with a tour of Bavaria, beginning in the picturesque city of Nuremberg, where Scenic Freechoice invites you to explore the city’s medieval architecture with an expert and to visit the moving sites of WWII. Explore World Heritage-listed Bamberg, in the north of the region and try authentic sausage during a tasting on board. Discover Würzburg’s Romantic Road as it unveils its many sights, including Neuschwanstein Castle and the walled town of Rothenburg, overlooking the Tauber River. Or, sample local wine at the Bishop’s Residenz. 

Sail the Main River to Rüdesheim, where you’ll board the quaint Winzerexpress mini-train to visit Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum, then take the cable car to the Niederwald Monument, built to celebrate the unification of Germany. The 2,000-year-old city of Cologne is considered western Germany’s cultural hub, meander through the city, making sure to admire the twin towers of the famous cathedral, or choose to explore another side to its cultural heritage, as you learn about its Jewish history. 

This incredible journey ends in the cosmopolitan Dutch capital, Amsterdam, where you can join the locals as you cycle through the city as part of a Scenic Freechoice activity, or choose to witness it via its extensive canal system. Alternatively, immerse yourself in quintessential Holland on a tour of Zaanse Schans, with its windmills and wooden houses, once relocated to emulate villages of the 18th and 19th centur¬¬y.
