Fortresses and Castles

Due to the tactical location of many settlements along the Rhine, fortresses, castles and other fortifications were often built here. Sailing there is an experience in itself.

Monday April 8: Arnhem - Dusseldorf

You are welcome on board from 16:00. In the course of the evening, you’ll be introduced to the crew in the lounge, and you can get to know your fellow passengers over a drink. During dinner, we will cast off and gently sail to our first destination, Dusseldorf.

Tuesday April 9: Dusseldorf - Bonn

In the morning, you’ll have the opportunity to discover Dusseldorf. This city offers you a variety of possibilities. The Altstadt (Old Town) allows you to see the old part of Dusseldorf, while in the Medienhafen (Media Harbour) you can get to know modern architecture. During lunch, we’ll continue our journey to Bonn, which we will reach in the course of the evening.

Wednesday April 10: Bonn - Koblenz

We’ll spend the morning in Bonn, the former capital city of West Germany. A tour(*) offers you the opportunity to get to know the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven. We leave Bonn behind at the end of the morning and sail on to Coblenz. This market town is sandwiched between the Moselle and the Rhine. The Deutsches Eck (German Corner), the point where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, is a real attraction. Ancient fortress walls, fortress towers and castles are relics from an eventful past and are still visible in this city.

Thursday April 11: Koblenz - Rüdesheim

Until lunch you can still get to know Koblenz, after which we’ll continue our journey to Rüdesheim. We will sail on the romantic Rhine, where you can enjoy beautiful views. You’ll see many fortresses and castles in passing on the densely forested hilltops. We will arrive in the wine city of Rüdesheim at the beginning of the evening. The medieval heart of the city, as well as parts of the fortifications, have been preserved. It’s always convivial in the Drosselgasse. While enjoying live music in the many restaurants and bars, you can enjoy the world famous Rüdesheimer coffee, or one of the local wines.

Friday April 12: Rüdesheim - Cologne - Emmerich

On our return journey towards Cologne, we will pass the Lorelei, and you can once again enjoy the beautiful surroundings passing by. We will reach the Cathedral City during the afternoon. The Gothic Cathedral is the main church of the archdiocese of Cologne and is also one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. There are long shopping streets behind the cathedral where you can enjoy shopping. After the Farewell Dinner, we’ll sail downstream to Emmerich.
