Along the Rhine to Mannheim | Feenstra river cruises

Along the Rhine to Mannheim

During this 10-day trip to Mannheim you will experience the great variety that the German landscape has to offer. The big cities and the picturesque villages along the Romantic Rhine are a feast for the eyes. You can even take the bus to Heidelberg (included). This way you can optimally experience the intimate atmosphere that the Neckardal radiates. In Heidelberg, the centre is definitely worth a visit, as is the castle high above the city.

Thursday: Arnhem-Düsseldorf

At 9.30 am we leave Arnhem behind us. Düsseldorf is on the program for the first day of this trip. We don't arrive until late in the evening, so you have plenty of time to get to know your fellow passengers.

Friday: Dusseldorf - Cologne - Königswinter

The crew is up early today, because before breakfast we set sail for Cologne. The 157 meter high towers of the Cologne Cathedral can be seen from afar. From our berth it is only a short walk to the Old Town and the shopping promenade beyond. After a pleasant stop in this interesting town we sail on to Königswinter. This wine town on the Rhine is best known for the Drachenfels high above the city.

Saturday: Konigswinter - Koblenz

The landscape is now changing visibly. Against the slopes of the imposing Siebengebirge we see the northernmost vineyards of the Rhine valley. Our destination Koblenz is located on the Rhine, but also on the Moselle. This central location has made Koblenz an important trading centre for the wider area. In the pleasant streets of the centre you will find a rich variety of shops and former merchant houses.

Sunday: Koblenz - Oberwesel - Rudesheim

Today we sail the Romantic Rhine. This part of the river is so called because of the many fortresses and castles built against the steep banks. We make our first stop in Oberwesel. In this Celtic city you can visit the Church of Our Lady or take a walk through the centre. In the course of the afternoon we continue our tour through the beautiful Rhine valley. Once we have arrived in Rüdesheim, you can visit Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Cabinet, the Wine Museum, or the cosy Drosselgasse.

Monday: Rudesheim - Wiesbaden-Biebrich - Mannheim

We stay in Rüdesheim for the rest of the morning and set course for Wiesbaden-Biebrich around noon. Here is a beautiful baroque castle from the 18th century with a 1200 meter long castle garden. Later in the afternoon we aim for Mannheim.

Tuesday: Mannheim - (bus transfer Heidelberg) - Mainz

In the morning you have time to go shopping or take a walk in the centre of Mannheim. After lunch you can join a scenic bus tour (included) to the university city of Heidelberg with its beautiful shops, buildings and Heidelberg Castle. The construction of this started around 1400 and you can recognize different architectural styles from the Gothic and Renaissance, among others. In 1689, the city of Heidelberg and the castle were destroyed, after a lengthy restoration, the castle has been restored to its original state. On the way to Heidelberg you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the Necker valley. Back on board, we lift anchor and sail downstream to Mainz.

Wednesday: Mainz - Boppard

We don't leave until around noon, so you can walk into town at your leisure. On our way to our next destination, Boppard, we once again pass the much-sung Lorelei. Boppard, located in the middle of the Bopparder Hamm, is a well-known wine region in the Rhine Valley. A short walk on the promenade along the river brings you to the lively centre. You can also take the cable car to the Vierseenblick. From this vantage point it seems as if the Rhine consists of four lakes.

Thursday: Boppard - Andernach - Bonn

In the morning we first make a short stop in Andernach before arriving in Bonn. As one of Germany's oldest cities, Bonn has a rich and fascinating history. In addition to the many museums and government buildings, the city also has long car-free shopping streets and atmospheric squares.

Friday: Bonn - Dusseldorf - Emmerich

With the current, Düsseldorf comes into view around noon. Close to the berth is the cosy Old Town with its countless cafes and exclusive shops on the Königsallee. It's nice just to walk over here. After a delay of several hours we sail on to Emmerich where we will spend the last night.

Saturday: Emmerich - Arnhem

There is still time to enter the border town of Emmerich. It is a nice place to do your last shopping. At noon we expect you back on board for lunch. We will moor in Arnhem around 2pm. This will bring an end to this wonderful journey and we will say goodbye to you.
