Active & Discovery On The Rhine – Northbound 2019
Germany, Holland (Netherlands)
A new and exciting way to river cruise and to actively discover well-known and off-the-beaten-path treasures along the Rhine. At each stop, you choose your activity—get some exercise with an active outing, discover a fascinating but perhaps lesser-known site, or do the more traditional sightseeing activity. The choice is yours!

Your river cruise adventure begins in Wiesbaden, Germany, near Frankfurt, and ends in Amsterdam—Holland’s lively capital. Active guests can choose to hike near Eltville, and in the idyllic landscape around Duisburg, climb up to Marksburg Castle for a guided visit and spectacular views, participate in a reenactment of Roman Games in Xanten, bike along the Rhin River, or join a running tour in Amsterdam.
