Sail to Kitzingen in Bavaria’s largest wine-producing area, then explore the Bavarian beauty of Volkach’s half-timbered houses and cobblestone streets. Enjoy a beer tasting on board your ship later. On to Bamberg, Germany’s “City of Seven Hills,” and former home of Imperial dynasties amid its seven church-crowned hilltops.
