Itinerary

Fly from the UK to Amsterdam. Be met on arrival in and transferred to your premium river ship. Perhaps take a stroll to discover all of the iconic sights. On board tonight, meet your Cruise Director and fellow passengers during a Welcome Reception.

Amsterdam’s network of 17th-century canals lends the city its nickname – ‘The Venice of the North’. Today you will board a glass-top boat and glide past the city’s waterside sights with a local guide. Back on land, enjoy some free time to explore the city at leisure before travelling by coach to Utrecht, stopping at Rembrandt’s Windmill. From here, your ship will set off along the Rhine, allowing you to enjoy a special Gala Dinner while you cruise. Following dinner, the delights continue as Welsh singer Aled Jones hosts a ‘Meet and Greet’ session on board. Head to the True North Lounge and get to know the legendary performer as he answers your questions.

Having entered Germany, arrive in Cologne and be met by the magnificent Cologne Cathedral on the bank of the Rhine. You will disembark your ship here, learning on a guided tour about the famous twin spires of this landmark cathedral, which took over six centuries to complete. After your tour, a true highlight awaits in the city’s Trinitatiskirche. In the intimate setting of this church, Aled will perform a private 60-minute concert that is exclusive to our guests.

Soak up the scenery as your ship gently twists through some of Europe’s prettiest stretches along the Moselle River. Disembark in the pretty town of Cochem in the Moselle Valley. Explore the narrow alleyways with their half-timbered houses and visit the magnificent Cochem Castle. Perched on a hill overlooking the beautiful Moselle River, this castle could be straight from the pages of a fairytale. Join Aled for dinner this evening on board. After your delicious meal, take the opportunity to grab photos and autographs in the Lounge. Aled will be personally signing his new album for all APT guests.

Experience the stunning Rhine Gorge as you cruise today, considered by locals to be the most beautiful section of the Rhine River. Watch in awe as steep slopes covered in vineyards and dotted with ancient castles drift past, before your ship docks in Rüdesheim, a Rhine Gorge wine town. Here, the Winzerexpress mini-train will take you through the town to Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum, which houses the most beautiful collection of automated musical instruments in Germany.

Arrive in Strasbourg, the Alsatian city that straddles the border between France and Germany. Fairy-tale houses mix with cobblestone streets and must-see canals, and Strasbourg Cathedral towers over the World Heritage-listed city centre. Discover the picturesque sites on a guided tour and enjoy the pretty scenery. You will have plenty of time to explore further at your leisure afterwards. The romantic district known as Petite France is a wonderful place to roam, and if you’re feeling peckish, perhaps stop by a local bakery for a traditional bretzel.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE: Visit the open-air Black Forest Museum Vogtsbauernhof. Here you will be treated to a mouth-watering Black Forest cake demonstration, followed by a tasting of this decadent dessert.
Disembark in Breisach today and explore the famous Black Forest region. Travel by coach, past the sky-bound pine and birch trees blanketing the mountainsides, to the scenic village of Triberg. This place was once the home to the inventor of Black Forest cherry cake, Josef Keller. Afterwards, enjoy some time at leisure. Later on, return to your river ship where

After breakfast on board, disembark and be transferred to Zürich airport for your return flight to the UK.
