River Cruise Description

This fabulous Central European 8 day Avalon river cruise from Nuremberg to Remich 2020 will transport you across picturesque Germany to charming Luxembourg on three rivers – the Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers. You’ll embark on your river cruise adventure in historic Nuremberg, Germany, and sail through the captivating Main Danube Canal to quaint Bamberg.

You’ll be amazed at the stunning 13th-century Romanesque cathedral and the ancient Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) – constructed on an island in the middle of the beautiful Regnitz River. You’ll enjoy a stop in magnificent Wurzburg, known as the “Pearl of the Romantic Road” and see the sensational ornate Bishop’s Residenz and the world’s largest ceiling fresco ever painted. You’ll see numerous historic sites, but you’ll also have plenty of free time to kickback and relax, do some shopping, and stop in a Konditorei (German pastry and coffee shop) for a luscious local favourite, while experiencing a traditional German afternoon!

Your wonderful river cruise will continue through the sensational Rhine Gorge, considered the most alluring view of the Rhine River. You’ll marvel at the ancient castles standing regally high on cliffs some 400 feet above the river. During this 8 day Avalon river cruise from Nuremberg to Remich 2020, you’ll also have an opportunity to taste some of Germany’s very best wines in the charming village of Bernkastel, where you’ll find Germany’s largest acreage of lush green wine-grape vines. This picturesque region will delight you with its half-timbered houses, which have been standing since the Middle Ages, strung along the narrow streets. There are many opportunities to be astonished on this fabulous river cruise adventure as you cruise peacefully on your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany, which is believed to be older than Rome. You’ll be amazed that you can still find remnants of ancient Rome, such as the imperial baths and the Roman Bridge, with stone pilings dating from 144 to 152 AD.
