From Switzerland to Germany via the iconic route of the Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers, we bring you this special 10-day European tour, featuring an eight-day river cruise and an extra two-night hotel stay in the cosmopolitan German capital, Berlin. Unearth medieval wonders in Heidelberg, tour the half-timbered houses and pretty canals of Strasbourg, step beneath the mystical canopy of the Black Forest, and enjoy the iconic sights of Berlin during an immersive city tour – from TV Tower and the Brandenburg Gate to the monumental Berlin Wall.

Join us in Basel where your luxury Star-Ship awaits to set out beyond the border of Germany, where the medieval charms of Colmar await. Strasbourg promises to delight with its heritage architecture, the majority of which can be seen in the beautiful Petite France Quarter. From Strasbourg, we travel east to Baden-Baden and the Black Forest, where an EmeraldACTIVE hike gives you the chance to visit the Altes Schloss. Cruising through the stunning Rhine Gorge, visit Mannheim and Heidelberg, before sampling the famous coffee of Rudesheim. In Mainz, you’re transferred to Frankfurt for a flight to Berlin, where you’ll spend two days exploring the diverse districts of the city, from gentrified Mitte to the former Eastern Bloc of Neukölln and Friedrichshain.
