BAVARIAN WINTER, Frankfurt to Nuremberg

 

DAY 1 FRANKFURT

Welcome to Frankfurt! Check in starts at 16:00 but you can pre-book an early check-in and lunch on board.

DAY 2 FRANKFURT

Frankfurt winter

Today, is the exploration day. As you explore this modern metropolitan gem, you will see a reconstructed Old Town, known as Römerberg, similar to the original that was largely destroyed during World War II. There are a number of museums and cathedrals to explore, including the home (and now museum) of 18th-century writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and the Städel Art Museum.

The ship departs at 20:00 Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner Coffee-station with small cookies and snacks is available during the day *Walking tour of Frankfurt can be booked for the extra charge (incl. in excursion package)

DAY 3 MILTENBERG

Another must-see on our cruise itinerary is Miltenberg, one of Germany’s best-preserved medieval villages. With its crooked cobblestone streets and charming half-timbered houses, Miltenberg looks like the quintessential Brothers Grimm fairytale town. It’s the perfect place to simply wander discovering romantic alleyways and quirky squares with charming old buildings housing cafes, specialty shops, traditional taverns, and wine cellars. You’ll wander through its labyrinth of winding alleys and lanes, each one filled with stunning colorful buildings. Don’t miss the Gasthaus Zum Riesen – it’s reportedly the country’s oldest tavern, serving drinks since the 12th century. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner Coffee-station with small cookies and snacks is available during the day

DAY 4 WURZBURG

Wurzburg

Today you'll have the opportunity to explore Würzburg, a resplendent city that is home to a magnificent Baroque palace, the Residenz. That first glance whisks you back to the romantic 18th century when this part of Germany captivated writers, artists, and musicians. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the royal residence has one of Germany’s most ornate staircases, as well as decorative frescoes, priceless tapestries, sculptures, and paintings. The Marienberg fortress perches high on a hill looking toward the opposite bank where the Würzburg Residenz ranks among the most important palaces in Europe. Würzburg’s bridges are a key feature of the cityscape and the famous Alte Mainbrücke is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of local Franconian wine from vineyards just outside the city. Take a guided sightseeing tour of Würzburg with its Old Main Bridge, towering fortress, and baroque Bishop’s Residenz—with the largest known ceiling fresco by famed Italian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Departure at 14:00 Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner Coffee-station with small cookies and snacks is available during the day *Walking tour of Würzburg (with transfer) can be booked for the extra charge (incl. in excursion package)

DAY 5 BAMBERG

Bumberg winterNo cruise of the Main river is complete without a stop in enchanting Bamberg, which is also UNESCO-listed thanks to its incredible heritage. Built by archbishops on seven hills and known as the ‘Franconian Rome’, the Bavarian town of Bamberg is simply magical. Home to so many attractions, your only task will be deciding which ones to visit. A network of canals and former fishermen’s houses make for an impressive sight (known affectionately as "Little Venice"), as does the old town hall, built on an island in the middle of the Regnitz river and flanked by a bridge at either side. From its fabulous, splendid cathedral (the resting place of Pope Clement II), to the local beer from Bamberg’s many breweries, this is a charming German town that never disappoints. Tour at your leisure today; see the former home to imperial dynasties, its Romanesque cathedral, Old Town Hall, and seven hills crowned with churches.
