Experience the re-awakening of spring along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers

April 7-17, 2019


Experience the re-awakening of Spring along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers. From the enchanting Keukenhof Gardens, in the Netherlands, at the peak of tulip season to the majestic heights of Switzerland. See the countryside bloom as we sail these two historic rivers of Europe.


Arrive in Amsterdam as the first destination on this amazing eleven day tour where we transfer to the exclusively chartered river ship, the MS Emerald Dawn. Experience this history-rich city from a different perspective as we pass historic buildings, lovely townhomes and churches at water level while we enjoy a narrated canal cruise. On an included excursion to the world-famous Keukenhof, discover why it’s called the "Garden of Europe." On this amazing, life-enriching experience, admire gorgeous flowers at the height of tulip season!


Cruising through Germany will provide us a visit to the 2,000-year-old city of Cologne as well as Cochem, a city rated as one of the prettiest villages along the Mosel. It’s known for it’s fortified gates, pastel-colored or half-timbered buildings, Baroque towers, and vintages of Mosel Riesling Wine. Also visit the romantic Koblenz and Ruedesheim while in Germany, with an optional excursion to Heidelberg as well. Heidelberg is known as Germany’s oldest university town and is famous for the ruins of its red-walled 16th-century castle. Between France and Germany lies lovely Strasbourg, one of Europe’s most attractive cities. Enjoy a visit with a panoramic tour before a walking tour of the city center.

Disembark the ship in Basel, Switzerland to begin a two-day Swiss adventure. Overnight in Lucerne, a picturesque town surrounded by mountains and meadows. Visit the famous 14th-century Chapel Bridge that crosses the Reuss River, see the Renaissance Town Hall and town squares, all set amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Swiss Alps.


You’ll bid ‘auf wiedersehen’ to Europe and return home with memories of life-enriching experiences from this once-in-a-lifetime cruise along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers.
