River Cruise Itinerary

Germany’s spectacular backdrops and breathtaking natural wonders will reveal themselves as you cruise along the alluring Moselle and Rhine rivers. Uncover the best-kept secret in river cruising, the Moselle, as you sail past some of Europe’s most serene, village-dotted and vineyard-lined landscapes. Discover the cities along the rivers where you’ll encounter cozy German towns and villages, a myriad of bike trails, stunning wooded and mountainous areas, Germany’s beguiling history and delectable cuisine. Spot timber-framed houses with flower boxes, intimate squares, and historic buildings starting in Frankfurt. Step into old-world Europe with a “Let’s Go” experience that will show you Mainhattan (not to be confused with New York City’s beloved borough) by bike. Wander through charming Mainz before venturing to Rüdesheim, where you can explore the Eberbach Abbey. Enjoy a Rheingau Riesling tasting within the historic walls and explore the grounds of the popular and picturesque filming location. Take in natural wonders and cultural treasures near and far as you cruise along the Rhine before meeting the winding Moselle. Revel in the picture-perfect wine villages of Boppard and Cochem nestled along the Moselle. Discover Germany’s oldest town, Trier, and learn about its rich Roman history on a panoramic walking tour that includes Emperor Bath, Constantine Basilica, and Karl Marx’s birthplace. Dive deeper into Germany’s heritage in Remich, Bernkastel, Bonn and Cologne. Embark on a castle hike, a village and vineyard walk, or cycle past famous landmarks and scenic shorelines, tasting classically-German beer, wine and sausage along the way. Let the enthralling Moselle and Rhine captivate you.

Day 1 (Wed, Oct 09, 2019): Cologne (Embark)

Arrive at Cologne Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.

Day 2 (Thu, Oct 10, 2019): Cologne, Bonn

Start your day in Cologne. Take a guided tour of the famous Cologne Cathedral or experience it like a local by visiting its Kölsch beer halls, stylish Belgian Quarter or one of the many Art Nouveau cafés. This afternoon, your ship will arrive at Ludwig van Beethoven’s birthplace of Bonn. Here, you can explore the German National Museum of Contemporary History or pedal along the Rhine’s breathtaking promenade.
Meals Included: Dinner

Day 3 (Fri, Oct 11, 2019): Cochem

Perhaps one of Germany’s most colorful cities, Cochem feels just like a storybook with its dramatic castles. impressive landscapes and pastel-colored shops, restaurants and buildings lining the banks of the Moselle. Perched high above on a cliff, the brilliant Cochem Castle, or Reichsburg Cochem, brings German history and culture to life and provides panoramic views of the Moselle and Cochem below. Amidst Cochem’s rolling hills sits the community of Ediger-Eller. Enchanting in its own right, Ediger-Eller shares many of its neighboring towns' German characteristics and charm. Embark on an exploration of the town where you’ll be joined by the mayor of Ediger-Eller for a tasting of scrumptious local Rieslings. Or, head to the outskirts of town and journey through some of Europe’s steepest Riesling vineyards.

Day 4 (Sat, Oct 12, 2019): Trier

Trier is no stranger to famous landmarks, stunning cathedrals, natural beauty, UNESCO World Heritage sites and architectural treasures. See Trier’s Roman heritage and Gallic charm as you stroll to some of the city’s most notable spots. Marvel at stone Roman gate, Porta Nigra, the Karl Marx house, Imperial Baths and more.

Day 5 (Sun, Oct 13, 2019): Trier, Bernkastel

On this day, uncover the region's diverse history and natural landscapes at the Roman Villa Borg. The villa was reconstructed to be an authentic representation of the buildings that originally stood as part of an agricultural facility. Or discover one of Germany’s most scenic wonders, the Saar Bow, a breathtaking river loop that astonishingly cuts into the landscape. The higher you hike, the more magical the views of this breathtaking natural formation become. In the neighboring country of Luxembourg, experience a healthy dose of historical novelties with a visit to the expansive Luxembourg American War Cemetery and Memorial of General Patton, one of the heroes of World War II.

Day 6 (Mon, Oct 14, 2019): Bernkastel

Bernkastel sits peacefully in the Moselle Valley and is as romantic and picture-perfect as it gets. Explore by foot its scenic streets, taverns and vineyards, and enjoy a tasting of exceptional regional Rieslings. Aside from the medieval marketplace, a must-see is the Graach Gate, the last remaining town gate of Bernkastel-Kues. Its original purpose was that of protection, hoping to ward off foreign aggression in the 1300s, but now it’s a museum of local history and a beloved landmark. If a bike is your transportation of choice, cycle along the dreamy paths of the middle Moselle.

Day 7 (Tue, Oct 15, 2019): Boppard, Rüdesheim

Boppard is as picture-perfect as it gets. Wander through its stone-laden streets, riverside walking paths and historic center, stopping in for wine at the half-timbered taverns serving up exceptional Riesling from grapes grown on nearby vineyards. Make your way up to arguably the best view in the entire region, Rhine Bend, by scenic chairlift ride. See the Rhine River at its most astonishing point and stroll or bike through its vineyard-dotted hillsides before heading back down to its waterfront streets.

Day 8 (Wed, Oct 16, 2019): Mainz

Start your day with an array of opportunities in this colorful and medieval German city nestled on the Rhine. What was once a Roman military post, Mainz still holds on to its historical importance in a whole new age. Explore Mainz’s natural wonders with a walking tour of Wiesbaden and its hot springs. Or wander around Mainz’s Old Town and marvel at its old-world buildings’ Gothic architecture. Mainz is marvelous. When your afternoon begins, journey to the extraordinary Eberbach Abbey, one of the most remarkable architectural sites in all of Germany. The former monastery sits in the acclaimed Rheingau region and has been a popular movie and television filming location. We’ll treat you to a Rheingau Riesling wine tasting within its historic walls.

Day 9 (Thu, Oct 17, 2019): Frankfurt

Settle into impressive Frankfurt. The city and its business district, Mainhattan, flaunt mixed-material skyscrapers that protrude from its otherwise classically German skyline. The financial and business hub is home to one of the world’s largest stock exchanges. Experience one of Germany’s most unique cities by foot or by bike, making time to sample its famed Ebblewoi, apple wine, or its schnitzel topped with green sauce. Bike through Mainhattan and past the stunning Central European Bank District, Goethe University and the captivating Museum Mile.
