Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner and an evening of activities on board. We'll remain in port in Basel for the night.
 
DAY 2 BASEL - BREISACH
We’ll spend the morning on a guided visit of Basel. We’ll discover the city’s old town and its various passages and medieval monuments such as the cathedral—the city’s hallmark—the marketplace, and the bright red town hall. We’ll spend the afternoon cruising to Breisach and enjoy an Alsatian-themed evening on board.
 
DAY 3 BREISACH - STRASBOURG
Join us for an excursion on the Alsatian Wine Route (lunch included). Our first stop will be Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle, where we’ll enjoy a guided tour plunging us into life during the Middle Ages. Once you cross over the drawbridge, you’ll find yourself in fully furnished and decorated living quarters surrounded by collections of medieval weapons. Afterwards, we’ll travel along the Alsatian Wine Route and stop at a wine cellar for a tasting*. The afternoon will be dedicated to guided tour of Strasbourg. A panoramic tour will first introduce you to all the highlights the city has to offer. We’ll then continue on foot to visit the famous, single-belfry cathedral, crossing through the Petite France area lined with canals and half-timbered houses. Our ship will cruise to Mannheim overnight.

Located at the crossroads of the Rhine and Moselle Regions, and surrounded by several mountain peaks, Koblenz is a rich mosaic of culture and history. We’ll take the funicular railway up the hill to visit the historic castle, where we'll have a magnificent view across the city and valleys. You’ll immediately understand the strategical importance of this fortress throughout history for the horizon stretches as far as the eye can see. Afterwards, we'll begin to cruise to Pommern.
