For a grand view of many of the charming and captivating towns in Holland and Germany, you’ll cruise on the Rhine and Main Rivers from Amsterdam to Nuremberg. You’ll experience the color and character of Amsterdam with a guided canal cruise on its iconic waterways, then cruise on the Rhine River to Cologne—a dynamic and historic city with its signature gothic cathedral and soaring twin steeples. Take a guided tour of the city or choose a walking tour of Cologne’s historical Jewish sites. Cruising toward the splendid Rhine Gorge, stop in Boppard with its half-timbered buildings and forest viewsbefore arriving in Rüdesheim—flanked by hillside vineyards and Rhine River shores.
