Day 1 | Highlights:

Your journey into wonder begins in this fascinating and compact harbour city. Relax and raise your glass to the days ahead at this evening’s welcome reception.


Day 2 | Amsterdam Highlights:

With 165 canals that stretch over 100 kilometres, Amsterdam’s magnificent waterways have made the city world famous and you’ll have ample opportunity to explore them. Listen to expert commentary as you take in the countless sights, and learn about the history that shaped this important European capital. Alternatively, discover charming Volendam, with its unusual raised homes and quaint wooden church before heading to the equally charming village of Edam.


Day 3 | Cologne Highlights:

Enjoy a scenic ride on the oldest cog railway in Germany and discover splendid Drachenburg Castle, or stroll through Cologne and get up close to the filigree twin towers of the famous cathedral. Either way, it’s a great day to see and discover.


Day 4 | Koblenz Highlights:

Take advantage of a guided tour of this historic city, which straddles two of Europe’s most beautiful rivers.  Alternatively, discover Cochem – a true medieval gem resting on the banks of the Moselle River. Cochem will make you feel as if you’re stepping straight into a fairy tale and you’ll be able to take a guided tour that culminates in a visit to the iconic Reichsburg Castle.


Day 5 | Rüdesheim Highlights:

Succumb to charming Rüdesheim, where you’ll board the Winzerexpress mini-train for a guided visit of Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum. Later, you can look forward to unrivalled views across the spectacular World Heritage-listed Rhine Gorge as you board a cable car directly to the Niederwald monument, before arriving in Mannheim.


Day 6 | Mannheim Highlights:

Discover the town of Heidelberg, with its fine Renaissance castle, or enjoy the Sweet Tastes of Heidelberg, where you’ll have an opportunity to sample some of the local chocolates, bon bons and gummy bears. Alternatively, discover the unique Technik Museum in the charming river-side town of Speyer, where you’ll see wondrous technological exhibits not to be found anywhere else.


Day 7 | Strasbourg Highlights:

Visit Strasbourg, where you’ll discover La Petite France and stroll through the Old Town, with its half-timbered houses and distinctive Alsatian winstubs. Alternatively, journey to Mittelbergheim in the Alsace and sample some of the best wines the region has to offer. Or you can opt to visit the Black Forest region, and enjoy a guided hike through its majestic vineyards.


Day 8 | Basel > Montreux Highlights:

Disembark and transfer to Vevey, home to Charlie Chaplin once he’d fled the United States. Enter the world of Charlie Chaplin as you meet one of the 20th century’s most celebrated artists during a visit to the Chaplin’s World Museum. This afternoon you’ll get the chance to luxuriate at your hotel, located on the shores of picturesque Lake Geneva, where you’ll be enjoying a two night stay.


Day 9 | Montreux Highlights: Panoramic Train Journey

Today you’ll board a first class carriage for a panoramic train journey to Château-d’Œx. Upon arrival you’ll view traditional cheese-making in rustic ambience at the Restaurant Le Chalet. The Restaurant Le Chalet makes its own cheese, “Le Chalet Bio”. The cheesemaker transforms milk into a hard cheese right in front of your eyes. At the end of the demonstration you’ll have an opportunity to taste the freshly made cheese.
