River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Berlin
    Wed, Jul 28, 2021

    Arrive at the Berlin airport, then transfer to your hotel. After check-in, you have free time to get acquainted with the city, or join our "Welcome Walk” to stretch your legs and get oriented.

  2. Day 2
    Berlin
    Thu, Jul 29, 2021

    After breakfast, enjoy a panoramic tour of the vibrant German capital, which has seen its fair share of dramatic changes in the last century. See the Reichstag with its spectacular glass dome, the historic Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and many other iconic sites. Enjoy the remainder of your day at leisure. (Breakfast)

  3. Day 3
    Potsdam
    Fri, Jul 30, 2021

    After breakfast, travel to Potsdam. Tour Sanssouci Palace, a perfect example of German rococo architecture, built by Prussian king Frederick the Great in the 18th century. Built as a summer retreat, it became his personal sanctuary and place to relax in the company of his beloved dogs. Wander through the rooms of the elegant palace and stroll through the magnificent gardens. Enjoy free time and lunch on your own, then transfer to Wittenberg to embark your Viking ship-a fine floating hotel that remains your docked home away from home until Day 5. (Breakfast, Dinner)

    *Please note: If you are in Potsdam on a Monday, Sanssouci Palace is closed; instead, enjoy a visit to the New Palace, considered the last great Prussian baroque palace.

  4. Day 4
    Wittenberg
    Sat, Jul 31, 2021

    This morning, follow in Martin Luther's footsteps to view many of Wittenberg's historic landmarks. Tour inside Luther's House and St. Marien's Church, where he preached.

  5. Day 5
    Meissen
    Sun, Aug 01, 2021

    Today, enjoy a comfortable motor coach ride to Meissen, where you will stop in at the Meissenware factory, producer of fine porcelain since the early 1700s. Discover how this trademarked porcelain is created by hand, then tour the museum. Proceed to Castle Hill for a walking tour through Old Town. You will join your sister ship in Dresden while your luggage is seamlessly transferred and delivered to your awaiting stateroom. Enjoy dinner on board and an evening at leisure. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

  6. Day 6
    Dresden
    Mon, Aug 02, 2021

    After breakfast, explore Dresden, nicknamed "Florence on the Elbe.” Drive through the 19th-century residential area to the Dresden Castle complex; enter the Green Vault to see a comprehensive collection that houses what many claim is the world's largest collection of treasures, including priceless jewels and emeralds. Continue on foot to see Zwinger Palace, Semper Opera House and the Frauenkirche (Cathedral of Our Lady) with its distinctive bell-shaped dome that survived World War II bombings but collapsed the following day. Later, it was rebuilt. Alternatively, enjoy more of Dresden on one of our optional tours. Select a full-day excursion and visit Dresden's baroque castles, sweeping wine estates and opulent palace, once home to royal and lavish banquets. Or, you can visit car manufacturing giant Volkswagen, and gain Working World insight during a tour of their state-of-the-art-facility.

    Dinner is served on board your ship; after, feel free to enjoy Dresden's many charms and attractions, among them our optional classical concert at Zwinger Palace. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

    *Please note: If you are in Dresden on a Tuesday, the Green Vault is closed; instead, enjoy a visit to the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Picture Gallery) to view some of the world's great masterpieces, including works by Raphael, Vermeer, Rubens and Rembrandt.

Return on board for dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

  8. Day 8
    Prague
    Wed, Aug 04, 2021

    After breakfast, disembark and transfer to Prague. Upon arrival, you tour Prague, the "City of a Hundred Spires.” After a guided walk through Old Town, take some free time to explore on your own. Then ride to visit Hradčany Castle. Return to the hotel for check-in and dinner on your own. (Breakfast)

  9. Day 9
    Prague
    Thu, Aug 05, 2021

    Enjoy a full day at leisure to explore this celebrated city, or join an optional Privileged Access tour to Lobkowicz Palace. Or choose to immerse yourself in the Josefov, or Jewish Quarter, of Prague during an enlightening walking tour.
