Wander the cobblestones of medieval Europe on this unforgettable 11-day river cruise and city stay, taking in the irresistible highlights of the Moselle, Rhine and Main rivers before an immersive three-night city break in the exquisite Czech capital of Prague. Our Cruise Experts have perfected the finer details of the itinerary, ensuring cultural highlights every step of the journey – from a special wine tasting experience as part of EmeraldPLUS to a tour of World Heritage-listed Würzburg, whose illustrious baroque buildings have earned it the affectionate moniker ‘Pearl of the Roman Road’.

Your journey begins amid the ancient streets of Bernkastel, a historic wine-growing town whose 5,000-year heritage is yours to discover during an EmeraldACTIVE cycling tour. From here, cruise the spectacular Rhine Gorge on your way to Miltenberg, whose medieval, half-timbered buildings complement the castle-strewn surrounds of the Main River. Würzburg and Bamberg each offer heritage wonders worthy of World Heritage status, from Altes Rathaus and St Michael’s Monastery to the elegant rococo architecture of the Bishops’ Residenz. Slipping from the Main to Nuremberg, you’re transferred through beautiful landscapes to Prague, where you’ll enjoy a three-night city break. Explore the sights of the Old Town, from the Astronomical Clock to Mozart’s Theatre, before visiting the impressive Prague Castle for an enriching guided tour. An evening of authentic local cuisine and entertainment, exclusive to EmeraldPLUS, is a charming way to end this incredible journey.
