Amsterdam features a labyrinthine network of over 165 manmade canals upon which AmaWaterways guests may choose to set out on an included canal cruise. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amsterdam also features 1,281 bridges, 1,550 “monumental buildings,” 2,500 houseboats, and miles of colorful, quaint cobblestone streets.
On select itineraries, guests will have a chance to visit the stunning 13th-century Cologne Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the second tallest structure in the city. The Cathedral is one of the only pre-war buildings which survived repeated Allied bombings during World War II.
Düsseldorf sits on both sides of the Rhine with the Old Town on one side and a modern cityscape on the other. Tour the Old Town to see the Art Academy, Castle Tower, and the “longest bar in the world” with over 250 bars!
The Rhine Gorge, Germany
This 40-mile stretch of scenic landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches from Rüdesheim to Koblenz, Germany, and is dotted with historic hilltop castles and fortresses. We sail through the Rhine Gorge on every Rhine River departure, providing guests with a view of castles on both sides of the ship as the Cruise Manager comments on the history and legends that have made these landmarks famous.
The gateway to the UNESCO-designated Upper Middle Rhine Valley, Rüdesheim is known for its winemaking, especially its superior Rieslings, which guests can taste on select included excursions. Guests can soar above the local vineyards by gondola or enjoy a hike through the rolling hills. In the evening, taste Rüdesheim’s world-famous coffee – set aflame with brandy and whipped cream or enter the whimsical world of Siegfried’s Mechanical Instrument Cabinet.
Perched along the Neckar River, the university town of Heidelberg is known for its historic role in German Romanticism. Your clients may retrace the footsteps of great thinkers while hiking the Philosopher’s Path, go on a walking tour that includes the historic red sandstone remains of Heidelberg Castle with its 220,000-liter Great Vat of wine. With your free time, go shopping in town in search of the Heidelberg Student’s Kiss chocolate.
Located in the Alsace region, Colmar is a beautiful village in France featuring cobblestone lanes and colorful half-timbered houses pulled straight from the pages of a storybook.
Did you know? Colmar is the birthplace of French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, who most notably designed the Statue of Liberty in 1886.
The capital of Alsace, Strasbourg is beloved for its wine culture and its immense Cathedrale de Notre Dame. The cathedral is the world’s fourth tallest church and an excellent example of 15th-century Gothic architecture. Strasbourg has changed hands between France and Germany multiple times throughout history and its unique multicultural heritage is evident throughout the city’s architecture and cuisine.
Lahneck Castle, Germany
While in Lahnstein, Germany, guests will be taken on an AmaWaterways-exclusive guided tour of this 13th-century medieval fortress. The castle contains beautifully preserved historic features including an armory, a dungeon, ornately decorated bedrooms, and a kitchen with an indoor water well.
