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.

Cologne (Köln), Germany
Germany’s most visited landmark – the UNESCO-listed Cologne Cathedral – dominates the skyline here, its magnificent Gothic twin-spires reaching toward the heavens. Peel your eyes away from the Kölner Dom, its local name, to see the space needle-like Rhine Tower, ancient Roman ruins, a modern museum, cozy beerhalls and the arches of the Hohenzollern Bridge, reconstructed after the war.

(At Sea)

Miltenberg, Germany
Most medieval towns are well preserved not because they’ve enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity, but because they’ve been reconstructed after some manner of devastation. Miltenberg has escaped damage of both roaring flame and raging war, remaining authentically historic in its full, fairytale bloom – a tale complete with truly ancient timber-framed buildings, fortified walls, forested glades, cobbled streets and hilltop castle.

Würzburg, Germany
A showcase of wealth for the resident prince-bishops, nearly 80 percent of Würzburg was destroyed in a single World War II bombing raid, rendering to rubble much of this old and lovely city. Now restored, Würzburg tells the tale of its 10th-century founding, subsequent rise in prominence, and enduring traditions in winemaking. Impressive architectural wonders include the Residenz, one of the most splendid palaces in Europe.

Bamberg, Germany
Unfolding over seven hills, each crowned by a church, Bamberg is often called Franconian Rome – though locals often claim Rome as the Italian Bamberg. Its entire Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an open invitation to wander charming cobbled lanes lined with half-timbered buildings topped by steep roofs and bordered by the waters of the river. Arched bridges and summer-blooming flowers add to the storybook charm of this town home to more breweries than Munich.

Nuremberg (Nürnberg), Germany
Although this Bavarian city dates to the 11th century, it is probably best known for a more recent history centered on the Nuremburg Trials, the military tribunals that took place after World War II. Much of the city was destroyed by Allied bombs, but many of the buildings, including the medieval Nuremberg Castle, have been painstakingly restored—using the original stones, no less. Nuremberg today is a joyous city, famous for its bratwurst, dark beer and spectacular Christmas Market.

Regensburg, Germany
Situated at the northernmost bend of the Danube and boasting a well-preserved medieval center, charming Regensburg finds itself not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but also a traveler’s favorite destination. With its 1,400 or so ancient buildings standing as regal testament to days gone by, this riverside treasure, complete with elaborate cathedral, quintessential clock tower, multi-arched bridge and multi-faceted personality, is a flourishing city.

Regensburg, Germany
Situated at the northernmost bend of the Danube and boasting a well-preserved medieval center, Regensburg finds itself not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but also a traveler’s favorite destination. This charming town came through World War II unscathed, with its 1,400 or so ancient buildings standing as regal testament to days gone by. In fact, Regensburg can trace its history to the Celtic age. Other pages of its interesting story include chapters as a major trading hub in Roman times and, in the centuries following, a flourishing city that displayed its prosperity and confidence with embellished churches, stately homes and sturdy towers to protect it all. Today, nothing can shield Regensburg from the admiration of visitors who develop an enduring fondness for this riverside treasure, complete with elaborate cathedral, quintessential clock tower, multi-arched bridge and multi-faceted personality.
