One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this exciting journey along the Rhine River, which takes you across Germany—and touches in France and Switzerland! This magnificent river cruise begins in Mainz—known for its old town, with half-timbered house and medieval market squares. Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, the most beautiful stretch of river dotted every mile with castles. And nearby, in the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, visit the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum to see the impressive collection of historical self-playing instruments. Enjoy a Guided Tour to Heidelberg Castle to see the ruins of the magnificent renaissance treasure towering above the city; or join your Avalon Adventure Host for a hike up Philosophers’ Way for an inspiring view of the city below; followed by a guided discovery tour through the cathedral- and imperial-city of Speyer. In Strasbourg, see the city’s gothic, stained-glass cathedral with its celebrated ancient murals and astronomical clock, and the magical La Petite France District. You may want to opt to join a half-day excursion to the splendid Alsace wine country. Be sure to pack your camera so you can capture the romance and splendour of this magical holiday.
