Overview

We start by exploring Mainz, with its Romanesque cathedral and timber-clad buildings, at the scenic heart of the country’s Winelands. Our cruise along the Main takes us to idyllic Miltenberg, a well-preserved medieval village. Then it’s on to delightful Wertheim, its ancient castle standing over the colourful market square below. Uncover further delights as we arrive in Würzburg, the most elegant of Bavarian cities, crowned by the Baroque palace. Take the Romantic Road to Rothenburg ob der Tauber for spectacular views of the German river Tauber below as it winds through this fairy-tale land.

The beauty of Bamberg never fails to enchant as our cruise arrives in undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and historic towns in Europe.

Sitting atop lush green hills, the spires of the stunning cathedral stretch to the sky above, whilst below the winding streets and quaint squares are a delight to explore. More picture perfect views  as we awake in historic Nuremberg, synonymous with the Second World War, but today an intriguing and stunning city once again with its ornate Gothic church and bustling market.
