Destination & Sightseeing

ITINERARY

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Everyone has an image of Amsterdam. For some, it’s small boats gliding on the canals and locals two-wheeling on bikes to work and, as frequently, to meet friends for drinks. For others, it’s gabled buildings leaning, seemingly precariously, over cobbled streets and cozy taverns illuminated by candles. Still others imagine tulips in bloom and the paintings Vermeer, Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Each vision is even more beguiling when experienced in person.

Dusseldorf, Germany
For a city whose history can be traced to the 7th and 8th centuries, Düsseldorf's edgy art culture and innovative business landscape is all the more impressive. The capital city of the North is decidedly posh, pushing the boundaries of high fashion and high-rise design, and a culinary and nightlife scene caters to the international elite who populate the city. Banking and tech industries have brought the city great wealth, making Dusseldorf one of the world’s most livable cities.

Koblenz am Rhein, Germany
Located where the Rhine and Moselle rivers and three mountain ranges meet, Koblenz’ scenery is unmatched. Add to that the city’s 2,000-year-old history, hilltop fortress and squares lined by classic Germanic architecture and you have a place ready made for photos. Ambling along the town’s narrow lanes and river promenade, you might encounter medieval churches, flower-filled parks, sidewalk cafes and perhaps a weinstube, or wine tavern, ideal for sipping Riesling and drinking in the atmosphere.

Bernkastel, Germany
This little town in the heart of the Mosel Valley is one of the best preserved medieval locales in the region. Bernkastel’s colorful Market Square is considered among the most authentic and lovely of those that line the riverside, with a Renaissance-era Town Hall overlooking the bustling activity of shops and cafes. Don’t miss – not that you could – the towering Spitzhäuschen, or “pointed house” that famously rises above the other rooftops in Bernkastel. With its ground floors built narrower than the upper floors, the building appears to wobble off balance, but has stood strong since it was built in 1416.

Trier, Germany
Trier, Germany. This venerable Episcopal city on the Moselle River is the oldest in Germany and, some claim, even older than Rome! The famous Porta Nigra is the only surviving fortified gate from the original Roman settlement and it still gives access to the town center. The Moselle is some 312-miles long, rising in the Vosges Mountains of northeastern France and entering Germany at Trier. The entire Moselle Valley is famous for its beautiful and tranquil scenery.

Bonn, Germany
A 2,000-year history has given Bonn many opportunities to reinvent itself and its role on the global stage, and it has done just that. Founded by Romans, like its nearly neighbor, Trier, Bonn was the onetime capital of the Electorate of Cologne, the site of the largest known Roman fortress, and, more recently, the capital of West Germany from 1949 to 1990, when reunification moved the government to Berlin. Bonn is still considered the unofficial second capital of the country, and is home to several governmental operations, as well as more than 20 United Nations institutions. Even throughout its centuries of political and powerful prominence, Bonn’s most famous son remains composer Ludwig Von Beethoven, who is commemorated in a museum at the site of his birth home in the city.

Arnhem, Netherlands
People have been fighting over Arnhem for centuries. It’s no mystery, given its natural beauty, abundant parks and bicycle pathways, and lively scene of cafés and creative hubs. Its darkest hour came during World War II, when the Nazis invaded the Netherlands, occupying the whole country within one week. In resistance, Arnhem became the site of the largest airborne military operation in history. Today, this prosperous town is known as a center of fashion and design.
