ROMANTIC RHINE WITH OBERAMMERGAU

With oberammergau extension
Tour: WZAO  MUNICH  AMSTERDAM
One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this exciting journey along the Rhine River. You’ll also be our guest in the Bavarian village of Oberammergau for the once-a-decade performance season of the world-renowned “Passion Play”.

Start your European vacation on shore for a guided tour of Germany and Austria, starting with guided sightseeing in Munich, including Nymphenburg Palace, the Marienplatz, and gothic Frauenkirche. Sample Munich’s Biergärtens and cafés, and see the famous Glockenspiel. Continue with the highlight of your trip—a visit to the idyllic Bavarian village of Oberammergau, to attend the “Passion Play”. Performed once every ten years by the residents of Oberammergau, the “Passion Play” is a stunning theatrical event dating back to 1634. Enjoy seating and accommodations in the heart of Oberammergau. Next visit the spectacular Neuschwanstein Castle on your way to Innsbruck, where you will enjoy a guided sightseeing before embarking on your Avalon Suite Ship® for an exciting journey along the Rhine River, which begins in Switzerland and visits France, Germany, and Holland! Board your Avalon Suite Ship® in Basel, Switzerland, then head for Breisach, Germany, at the foot of the Kaiserstuhl Mountain on the French-German border. Here you’ll find the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest, an area of unrivaled natural beauty, best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock. Continue your river cruise to Strasbourg, France, and marvel at the red-sandstone Gothic cathedral with ancient murals and the fascinating astronomical clock. Stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg Castle, towering magnificently over the city, or stop in Mainz for a guided walk and a visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum. Sail to the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, and a visit to the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum, then pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—the most beautiful view of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Last stop in Germany is Cologne—a 2,000-year-old city known for its Gothic architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral.

At the conclusion of your Rhine River cruise, you’ll spend time in colorful Amsterdam. The best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on an included canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.” Spend free time discovering world-famous museums, and an abundance of restaurants in the vibrant, modern capital of Holland. The perfect blend of adventure, relaxation, and inspiration—your Avalon Rhine River cruise with the once-a-decade performance of Oberammergau’s “Passion Play”—is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
