Romantic Rhine With 1 Night In Amsterdam (Southbound) on Avalon Vista

Product Image
One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this exciting journey along the Rhine River, which takes you across Germany-and touches in Holland, France, and Switzerland! Begin your Romantic Rhine vacation your way with a one-night stay in Amsterdam! Join us for an off-the-beaten-path guided walking tour through its cobblestone streets before embarking on your Suite Ship®. Continue to explore this 700-year-old city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten, lined with homes dating back to the city’s "Golden Age." Cologne, Germany-a 2,000 year-old city known for its Gothic-style architecture-will be an exciting stop with its famous twin-spired cathedral and Old Town with many shops, cafés, and taverns.

Pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful view of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Cruise to the charming wine town of Rüdesheim and visit the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum. Continue your Rhine River cruise to Mainz for a guided walk and visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum, or take an excursion to Heidelberg to visit the ruins of its red-walled castle. In Strasbourg, France, marvel at the red-sandstone Gothic-style cathedral with ancient murals and fascinating astronomical clock. Also, stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Stop in Breisach, Germany, the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest. Here, find unrivaled natural beauty in the area best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock.
