At 9.30 am we leave Arnhem behind us and soon approach the German border. On the first day of this special cruise we sail to Düsseldorf.
Dusseldorf - Bonn - Andernach
We leave Düsseldorf early in the morning. Near Cologne we pass the largest cathedral in Germany. The 157 meter high towers can be seen from afar. After lunch we moor in Bonn, the birthplace of Beethoven. You have until the end of the afternoon to explore the city. During the journey to Andernach, the foothills of the mighty Siebengebirge rise up on the horizon.
Andernach - Cochem - Alken
We left before breakfast and after rounding the Deutsche Eck we see the Moselle valley. After the hustle and bustle on the Rhine, you will be overwhelmed by a serene tranquillity in the beautiful Moselle valley. The steep vineyard-covered slopes on both sides of the river make for an unforgettable day. In Cochem you have a beautiful view of the river valley from the high Reichsburg. Cochem is a tourist resort par excellence and there is plenty to do in the busy centre. At the beginning of the evening we sail to the lovely town of Alken.
Alken - Koblenz - Linz
In Alken, on the starboard side, Thurant Castle dominates the magnificent panorama. You can enjoy the quiet Moselle valley this morning. As soon as we have left the Moselle through the lock at Koblenz, we moor. In the afternoon you can join an excursion (*) or explore the city centre on your own. Here you will find cosy squares and alleys. In addition to beautiful buildings and monuments, there are also many wineries with terraces and modern shopping streets. During dinner we continue our journey to Linz where we will spend the night.
Linz - Cologne - Duisburg
We arrive in Cologne early in the morning. You have plenty of time to visit the famous cathedral or take a walk through the nearby Altstadt. In the afternoon we sail on to Duisburg. Meanwhile, all preparations are being made on board for the Captains Dinner and a festive farewell evening.
Time has flown by. At 2pm we arrive back in Arnhem, where we say goodbye to each other. You will talk for a long time about all the beauty you saw during this wonderful journey.
