The Rhine & Moselle: Canals, Vineyards & Castles on Avalon Visionary

Product Image
This magnificent European river cruise vacation begins in Holland’s colorful, modern capital of Amsterdam. See the treasures of this 700-year-old city from a unique perspective on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten. Then, embark on your picturesque cruise along the Rhine River to Cologne, Germany-a 2,000-year-old city known for its Gothic-style architecture. On a guided city walk, see the famous twin-spired cathedral and explore the cobblestone streets of the Old City. You’ll sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, enjoy a stroll through its famous cobblestone Drosselgasse lined with shops, restaurants, and lively taverns.

Along the Moselle River, stop at the picturesque town of Cochem where the Riesling grape is cultivated. Visit Reichsburg Castle, nestled among vineyards and offering breathtaking views of the town and river valley below. In Bernkastel, enjoy a guided walk and taste some of the region’s best-loved wines. Join an included excursion to historical Luxembourg City, offering unique and dramatic views as it is set on two levels-high above on straddling hills and dropping into two river valleys.
