Arrive at Strasbourg Airport.

If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.

Dinner

Day 2 - Strasbourg

Strasbourg is invariably described as quaint, a rather overused word that in this case is perfectly apropos. This historic town with its cobbled lanes, half-timbered homes, giant stork nests and impossible-to-resist pastry shops will win your heart.

You may choose to see Strasbourg via a panoramic tour, which would give you an enlightening and relaxing overview of this historically important city.

Or you may experience the historic core as the locals do, with a walking tour.

In the evening, a special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

Day 2 - Strasbourg

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3 - Speyer

Expect the unexpected in Speyer, where ancient treasures harmoniously coexist with modern day innovation. For something really unexpected, venture into a mysterious, candlelit tasting room to sample flavorful elixirs made from wine vinegars. Utterly unique and surprisingly delicious.

The ship docks in Speyer, where you’ll have to choose between boarding a motorcoach for a guided walking tour or taking in a private tasting at a local vinegar estate.

Day 3 - Speyer

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 - Cochem

Perhaps one of Germany’s most colorful cities, Cochem feels just like a storybook with its dramatic castle, impressive landscapes and pastel-colored shops, restaurants and buildings lining the banks of the Moselle.

Perched high above on a cliff, the brilliant Cochem Castle, or Reichsburg Cochem, brings German history and culture to life and provides panoramic views of the Moselle and Cochem below, which you’ll have the chance to see during the nighttime glow.

Day 4 - Cochem

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5 - Cochem

The picturesque town of Cochem is nestled in a particularly scenic area of the Moselle Valley. The Moselle River cuts through the town, leaving Cochem in two distinct halves on two steep hills, one on the left side of the river and one on the right. Discover Cochem’s perfect quaintness on foot, with stops along the city wall’s medieval gates and Marktplatz.

Uncover Cold War secrets in the quiet residential area of Cochem-Cond, the location of a bunker that held replacement currency during the Cold War.

Or opt for an active jaunt along the Moselle with a bike tour, mountain golfing or hike.

Day 5 - Cochem

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6 - Trier

Trier has no shortage of famous landmarks, stunning cathedrals, natural beauty, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and architectural treasures. See Trier’s Roman heritage and Gallic charm as you stroll to some of the city’s most notable spots.

Day 7 - Trier

Trier is a city surrounded by stunning ruins and remnants of the Roman Empire, and not to mention, neighbor to the small country of Luxembourg.

Experience a healthy dose of historical novelties with a visit to the expansive Luxembourg American War Cemetery and Memorial of General Patton, one of the heroes of World War II.

Day 7 - Trier

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8 - Bernkastel

Bernkastel sits peacefully in the Moselle Valley and is as romantic and picture-perfect as it gets. Explore by foot its scenic streets, taverns and vineyards, and enjoy a tasting of exceptional regional Rieslings.

Aside from the medieval marketplace, a must-see is the Graach Gate, the last remaining town gate of Bernkastel-Kues. Its original purpose was that of protection, hoping to ward off foreign aggression in the 1300s, but now it’s a museum of local history and a beloved landmark.

If a bike is your transportation of choice, cycle along the dreamy paths of the middle Moselle.

Day 8 - Bernkastel

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 09 - Boppard

Boppard is as picture-perfect as it gets. Wander through its stone-laden streets, riverside walking paths and historic center, stopping in for wine at the half-timbered taverns serving up exceptional Riesling from grapes grown on nearby vineyards.

In Rüdesheim, make your way up to arguably the best view in the entire region, Rhine Bend, by scenic chairlift ride. See the Rhine River at its most astonishing point and stroll through its vineyard-dotted hillsides before heading back down to its waterfront streets.

Enjoy a visit to Rheinstein Castle and learn the history of this long-standing medieval castle or embark on a walk around town, complete with local treats.
