Upon arrival at Munich Airport, you’ll transfer to Nuremberg to board your Emerald Waterways Star-Ship, where your captain and crew will warmly welcome you. (Dinner)

This morning, relax on your Star-Ship as we cruise towards Bamberg. When we arrive in Bamberg, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed charms of this ancient city are certain to delight.

Day 3 Würzburg
Art, architecture and local wines are among the primary features of Würzburg, where vineyards pepper the surrounding landscape and viticulture flourishes. Air raids during WWII destroyed most of the old town, but it has been rebuilt and restored to its former glory, leaving an enchanting mixture of medieval and contemporary architecture.

Today, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge in an EmeraldPLUS wine tasting in the Staatlicher Hofkeller below the Würzburg Residence, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed Baroque palace that is considered to be one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in the world. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
