Castles and Fortresses | Feenstra river cruises

Castles and Fortresses

Due to the tactical location of many settlements along the Rhine, fortresses, castles and other fortifications were often built here. Sailing past them in a ship is an experience in itself.

Monday/Wednesday: Arnhem - Düsseldorf

You are welcome on board from 5pm. In the course of the evening, you’ll be introduced to the crew in the lounge, and you can get to know your fellow passengers over a drink. During dinner, we will cast off and gently sail to our first destination, Düsseldorf.

Tuesday/Thursday: Düsseldorf - Bonn

In the morning, you’ll have the opportunity to discover Düsseldorf. This metropolis is not only the capital of North-Rhine Westphalia, it is also a leader when it comes to fashion. This is a true shoppers’ paradise, with the Königsallee as the icing on the cake. But lovers of culture will not go short of anything in Düsseldorf, with the many museums and old buildings such as the City Hall and the Schlossturm (Castle Tower). As we continue our journey and sail past Cologne, High Tea will be served in the lounge. We will moor in Bonn during the evening.

Wednesday/Friday: Bonn - Andernach

We’ll spend the morning in Bonn, the former capital city of West Germany. Being one of the oldest cities in Germany, Bonn enjoys a rich and flourishing history. In addition to the many museums and government buildings, the city also has long, traffic-free shopping streets and attractive squares. We will leave Bonn later in the morning and sail on to the Celtic fortified town of Andernach.

Thursday/Saturday: Andernach- Rüdesheim - Koblenz

Our journey to Rüdesheim begins early. We will sail along the Romantic Rhine where you can enjoy beautiful views. We will pass many fortresses and castles on heavily-wooded hillsides. We arrive in the wine town of Rüdesheim at the beginning of the afternoon. The medieval town centre, as well as part of the town’s defences remain intact. The Drosselgasse street is always a lively place. You can enjoy the world-renowned Rüdesheimer Kaffee (coffee) or one of the local wines in one of the many restaurants and bars, while enjoying the live music. We sail back to Koblenz during dinner and will stay overnight there.

Friday/Sunday: Koblenz - Duisburg

The commercial town of Koblenz is wedged between the Moselle and the Rhine. The Deutsche Eck, the point where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, is a tourist attraction. Old defensive walls, fortress towers and castles are among the remains of a turbulent past and are still very visible in this town. During lunch we will sail downstream to Duisburg. You can enjoy a Farewell Dinner in the restaurant this evening, followed by an enjoyable evening in the lounge.

Saturday/Monday: Duisburg - Arnhem

The last day has arrived. To round off the holiday we have prepared a delicious champagne brunch for you. We will arrive in Arnhem at around 11am, where we say goodbye to you and wish you a good trip home.
