Medieval Treasures 2019 AmaWaterways River Cruise

Experience the romantic spirit of the Rhine and peaceful Main rivers. Marvel at some of Europe’s grandest Baroque jewels at the Würzburg Residenz. Visit one of Mark Twain’s favorite cities, Heidelberg, and meander through Miltenberg, with its half-timbered houses that lean crookedly against one another. Take a gondola ride over Rüdesheim’s vineyards, and then savor the flavours of its wonderful wines. While in Bamberg and Frankfurt, be treated to a tasting of their famous beers.

Capital city of France’s Alsace region, Strasbourg is situated on the Rhine at the German border. After arriving this morning, enjoy either a panoramic bus tour or guided bike tour that will take you past the Orangery, the town’s oldest park, the European Parliament and the Place de la Republique. Afterwards, explore on foot with a walking tour of the lovely “La Petite France” neighborhood, where you will see the Gothic cathedral with its famous astronomical clock. You also have the option of exploring Strasbourg on a guided hike that begins at the Orangery and makes its way to the cathedral. The remainder of the day is yours to spend as you wish before the ship departs tonight.

Arrive in Mannheim, where you have a choice of either visiting the city’s famed Baroque Palace or joining a walking tour of Speyer, one of Germany’s oldest cities, known for its cathedral, numerous churches and the medieval Altpörtel (Old Gate).

Your exploration of Rüdesheim continues with your choice of one of three excursions: a gondola ride above the town to see the Niederwalddenkmal Statue followed by a wine tasting with a local vintner; a visit to Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Museum, home to a remarkable collection of old robotic and self-playing musical instruments; or a half-day excursion to the historic university town of Heidelberg, where you will visit the red-walled castle with its Great Vat (a 49,000-gallon wine cask) and enjoy beautiful views of the Neckar Valley and city below.
