Highlights of this cruise:
Strasbourg is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. It is most widely known for hosting a number of important European institutions. It is also famous for its beautiful historical centre - the Grande Île - which was the first city centre to be classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Visitors to Strasbourg will enjoy the architectural delights of the Grande Île district including the Cathedrale Notre Dame and its Astrometric Clock, the Maison Kammerzell, Palais des Rohan and the Musee Alsacien. Also worth visiting is Petite France, the small area between the rivers just south of the Grand IIe. It is Strasbourg's prettiest and most photogenic streets and buildings, with half timbered townhouses leaning out over the narrow cobbled streets.
Koblenz is a German city situated on both banks of the Rhine at its confluence with the Moselle, where the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) and its monument (Emperor William I on horseback) are situated. It is a historical city with remains dating back to 1000BC.
Koblenz boasts extensive defensive works, including forts crowning the hills encircling the town to the west, and the citadel of Ehrenbreitstein on the opposite bank of the Rhine. Since 1890, the city has consisted of the Altstadt (old city) and the Neustadt (new city) or Klemenstadt. Of these, the Altstadt is closely built and has only a few fine streets and squares, while the Neustadt possesses numerous broad streets and a handsome frontage along the Rhine.
Rudesheim is a town in the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis, Hesse, Germany. It is located on the right (east) bank of the Rhine, at the southern entrance to the Loreley valley.
Rudesheim has been famous for its Drosselgasse since the end of the 19th century. Its wine bars and cafes offer non-stop music and dancing. The Castle Broemserburg houses the famous Wine Museum.
Other attractions include the Museum of Medieval Torture, and Siegfried Wendel's Mechanical Music Cabinet, which has an extensive variety of mechanical musical instruments, distributed throughout a 15th century castle.
