Art, architecture and local wines are among the primary features of Würzburg, where vineyards pepper the surrounding landscape and viticulture flourishes.

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.

Marvel at Miltenberg’s Old Town, with its well-preserved half-timbered buildings and the Gothic Merchant Hall, an impressive symbol of past affluence created by trade from river traffic.

Later this afternoon, continue to sail through the picturesque surrounds of the Rhine Gorge, and be left inspired by the ruined castles and hilltop fortresses that pepper the area.
