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. Strasbourg, a dynamic city that has changed its nationality four times, has a lot to offer. With a UNESCO-designated City Center, over 248 miles of biking trails, and hundreds of bakeries, breweries and cafes, you won’t have a shortage of ways to explore the town’s undeniable charm. Savor a one-of-a-kind experience in historic Speyer, where you’ll be treated to a private vinegar tasting at a captivating estate. Explore Cochem’s castle-dotted hillsides with a nighttime visit to Cochem Castle, where you’ll get an unmatched look at the history of the area over hundreds of years. See Germany’s oldest town, Trier, and learn about its rich Roman history on a panoramic walking tour that includes the Emperor Bath, Constantine Basilica, and Karl Marx’s birthplace. Embark on a tour of the neighboring country of Luxembourg and get a feel for its warm, welcoming atmosphere on a tour of its capital. And revel in the picture-perfect winemaking villages of Bernkastel and Boppard. Along the way, you’ll enjoy countless wellness opportunities and excursions, and can enjoy our Traveling Lite menu onboard, featuring dishes with fewer calories as well as vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. Let the enthralling Moselle and Rhine captivate you.

Day 1 (Sat, Jul 03, 2021): Frankfurt (Embark)

Arrive at Frankfurt 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 (Sun, Jul 04, 2021): Cochem

Perhaps one of Germany’s most colorful cities, Cochem feels just like a storybook with its dramatic castle, impressive landscapes and pastel-colored shops, restaurants and buildings lining the banks of the Moselle. Perched high above on a cliff sits the brilliant Cochem Castle, or Reichsburg Cochem, which brings German history and culture to life and provides panoramic views of the Moselle and Cochem below, which you’ll have the chance to see during the nighttime glow.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 (Mon, Jul 05, 2021): Cochem

The picturesque town of Cochem is nestled in a particularly scenic area of the Moselle Valley. The Moselle River cuts through the town, leaving Cochem in two distinct halves on two steep hills. Discover Cochem’s perfect quaintness on foot, with stops along the city wall’s medieval gates and Marktplatz. Uncover Cold War secrets in the quiet residential area of Cochem-Cond, the location of a bunker that held replacement currency during the war. Or opt for an active jaunt along the Moselle with a bike tour, mountain golfing or hike.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 (Tue, Jul 06, 2021): 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 the stone Roman gate, Porta Nigra, the Karl Marx house, Imperial Baths and more.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 (Wed, Jul 07, 2021): Trier (Luxembourg)

Trier is a city encased in stunning ruins and remnants from the Roman Empire, and not to mention neighbor to the small country of Luxembourg. Experience a healthy dose of history with a visit to the expansive Luxembourg American War Cemetery and Memorial, where General George S. Patton is buried.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 (Thu, Jul 08, 2021): 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, helping 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.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 (Fri, Jul 09, 2021): Boppard, Rüdesheim

Wander through Boppard’s stone-paved 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. In Rüdesheim, 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 through its vineyard-dotted hillsides before heading back down to its waterfront streets. Enjoy a visit to Rheinstein Castle and learn the history of this long-standing medieval castle, or embark on a walk around town, complete with local treats.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 (Sat, Jul 10, 2021): Speyer

Expect the unexpected in Speyer, where ancient treasures harmoniously coexist with modern day innovation. For something really unexpected, venture into a mysterious, candlelit tasting room to sample flavorful elixirs made from wine vinegars. Utterly unique and surprisingly delicious. The ship docks in Speyer, where you’ll have to choose between boarding a motorcoach for a guided walking tour or taking in a private tasting at a local vinegar estate.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 (Sun, Jul 11, 2021): Strasbourg

Strasbourg is invariably described as quaint, with its cobbled lanes, half timbered homes, giant stork nests and impossible-to-resist pastry shops. You'll see Strasbourg today, and enjoy an enlightening and relaxing overview of this historically important city.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10 (Mon, Jul 12, 2021): Strasbourg (Disembark)

Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group purchase or transfer, you will be transferred to Strasbourg Airport for your flight home.
Meals Included: Breakfast

This was our third river cruise with Uniworld and all have been excellent on every count. Cabin, dining, excursions, and service are all superior. All crew members contributed to making the passengers feel welcome and well cared for. We feel that Uniworld provides a good value for their products.

Value for money, though it may seems expensive compared to other cruise operators. Though the ship, River Queen, is built in 1999, but it is well maintained

Uniworld is always a class act. They have changed this itinerary slightly for 2019. It is a little shorter and focuses more on the Moselle, which is the more scenic of the 2 rivers.

Very pleased with the courtesy and professionalism shown throughout the process.

UnIworld River Cruise was outstanding. Even better than we thought. Everything was great.

Uniworld team was truly outstanding. They made you feel at home and personalized their service well beyond most expectations. An exceptional experience!

Uniworld is a wonderful provider. I was treated in every way like a queen. The staff is courteous, professional, and caring. Anytime one of your travelers is waffling on a river cruise provider, send them my way for the highest recommendation of Uniworld!
