DAY BY DAY ITINERARY

 

DAY 1 GERMANY: COLOGNE

Welcome in the pre-Christmas atmosphere of the old Hanseatic town of Cologne! You board your festively decorated AMADEUS ship in the afternoon, after which you can enjoy a Welcome Cocktail with the cruise director and a lovingly prepared Welcome Dinner. Your floating premium hotel will then depart and head towards Koblenz.

DAY 2 KOBLENZ - BOPPARD

During breakfast, you arrive in wintery Koblenz, one of the oldest towns in Germany. In the morning, we offer you a sightseeing walk through the city, which will take you to its most interesting attractions. At this time of year, the stalls and lights of the Christmas markets create a particularly festive and romantic atmosphere here. In the afternoon, you have the opportunity to visit the Christmas market, and thereafter your ship continues its journey to Boppard. Enjoy an atmospheric glühwein (mulled wine) party on board as the picturesque riverscapes of the Middle Rhine region glide by. Your ship lies at anchor in Boppard overnight.

DAY 3 BOPPARD - RUDESHEIM

During the course of the morning, you cruise through what is probably the most beautiful section of the Rhine – the Middle Rhine Valley. From your ship, you can enjoy the magical, wintery landscapes, including a view of the myth-enshrouded Lorelei rock. After lunch, your ship docks in Rüdesheim, where you can take part in a sightseeing walk, which includes a visit to Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet Museum. Thereafter, a visit to the Christmas market is guaranteed to put you in a festive mood. Back on board your festively decorated AMADEUS ship, the captain will invite you to an elegant Gala Dinner, while your ship travels to Cologne.

DAY 4 COLOGNE

Having enjoyed several festive Advent days, it is now time to bid your ship and the crew farewell. After breakfast, you will disembark, and the entire AMADEUS team wishes you a pleasant journey home and a happy festive season. We hope to welcome you again soon!
