Avalon Waterways
Avalon Visionary

See the grandeur of Germany with a scenic river cruise through its most picturesque destinations along the Main and Rhine Rivers.

Your European scenic river cruise begins with two nights in Munich. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle, and visit the mountain village of Oberammergau—known for its once-a-decade production of the Passion Play. You may decide instead to take a guided tour of the fascinating highlights of Munich. You’ll then embark on your Avalon Suite Ship® in Nuremberg, and sail to Bamberg for a guided walking tour of the historic home to imerial dynasties.
