Arnhem - Düsseldorf
You are welcome on board from 5pm onwards. After the crew have introduced themselves we’ll weigh anchor and set sail for our first destination, Düsseldorf, where we will arrive tomorrow morning. After dinner you can make your plans for the coming days in the lounge.
Düsseldorf - Bonn
We arrive in Düsseldorf before breakfast. You can take part in an optional excursion (*) in the morning. During this walk you will visit the lovely centre of this metropolis, or you can ofcourse explore the city by yourself. There are long shopping streets with well-known brands and department stores behind the lively Altstadt (Old Town). As we sail on to Bonn in the afternoon, you can enjoy High Tea in the lounge.
Bonn - Boppard
We will spend some time in the morning in West Germany’s former capital. During lunch we set course for our next destination, Boppard. The further we sail along the Rhine, the more the scenery changes. It is now more hilly and the first vineyards are coming into view. In the afternoon you can enjoy a delicious barbecued lunch on the sun deck. Early in the evening we will arrive at the wine town of Boppard. The promenade beside the water will lead you to the small but attractive centre.
Boppard - Lorelei - Rüdesheim
Today the highlight of the trip, the Lorelei is on the programme. We offer you a free bus transfer from Boppard to the Lorelei lookout point. From here you’ll have wonderful views of the Rhine Valley and the Lorelei. The Rhine here is 25 metres deep and 113 metres wide. Meanwhile you can see our ship sail past the Lorelei. Guests who have taken part in the excursion will come back on board in Oberwesel. Our journey to Rüdesheim takes us along the Romantic Rhine where you can enjoy wonderful views. It won’t be long before we arrive in Rüdesheim. Rüdesheim is well-known for its many wine cellars, historic half-timbered houses and the Drosselgasse. In this narrow alleyway you can enjoy a delicious Riesling from the area in one of the many intimate wine bars.
Rüdesheim - Cologne
Once again we can enjoy the beautiful panorama. We’ll go at a good pace as we want to be in Cologne in plenty of time. There is plenty of shopping in the streets behind the Dom (Cathedral), or a visit to the Chocolate Museum is one of the many possibilities. Or you can go on a tour(*) to the nearby Augustusburg Castle.
Cologne - Arnhem
The last day has arrived. To round off the holiday we have prepared a delicious Champagne brunch for you. We will arrive in Arnhem at around 11am, where we say goodbye to you and wish you a safe trip home.
