You can then take a seat in the restaurant where you will be served an exquisite dinner.

Strasbourg - Speyer
We stay in Strasbourg all day and that gives you the opportunity to fully enjoy one of the largest and oldest Christmas markets. Around the cathedral and at 12 locations in the heart of the city, the more than 300 stalls, kilometers of lights, the large Christmas tree and various shows and performances create a magical Christmas atmosphere that you will not soon forget. At the end of the day, we leave Strasbourg and head towards Speyer where we will spend the night.
Wednesday December 15:
Speyer - Mannheim
Today you can participate in a full-day excursion (*) to Heidelberg. In the course of the morning, the wooden houses on the Christmas markets in Heidelberg's Old Town open their shutters. You are short of eyes and ears. Enthusiasts can put on the irons and go skating on the ice rink at Karlplatz. From here you also have a beautiful view of Heidelberg Palace. Meanwhile the ship has sailed to Mannheim, where the participants of the excursion will return on board at the end of the afternoon. The rest of the day you can stroll through the Christmas markets of Mannheim. You will undoubtedly find the most beautiful at the Water Tower.

Mannheim - Rüdesheim
The crew is up early and when you have breakfast we are already on our way to Rüdesheim. In the morning you can attend a real Apfelstrüdel demonstration in the lounge. Is your mouth watering yet? During lunch we moor in Rüdesheim. The most famous street in Rüdesheim is without a doubt the Drosselgasse. This charming narrow alley is teeming with musical and cultural highlights. Have a nice glass of wine in one of the many wine taverns or look for beautiful souvenirs in one of the many special shops.

Rüdesheim - Koblenz - Arnhem
During breakfast we leave Rüdesheim behind us. Today's destination is Koblenz. Every year during Advent, the heart of this Roman city turns into an atmospheric Christmas paradise.
