Active Discovery on the Rhine


Per person, twin share

02 43206222


Duration: 7 days,


A new and exciting way to river cruise and to actively discover well-known and off-the-beaten-path treasures along the Rhine. At each stop, you choose your activity—get some exercise with an active outing, discover a fascinating but perhaps lesser-known site, or do the more traditional sightseeing activity. The choice is yours!

Your adventure begins in Amsterdam, Holland’s lively capital! The energetic on board might like to join a guided running tour, or for a gentler pace, see the city on a cruise, gliding through the myriad of canals lined with stately homes. Alternatively, participation in a painting class could reveal the artist in you! And every day we have more planned: Active guests can choose to bike along the Rhine, participate in a reenactment of the Roman Games, climb the many steps up to Marksburg Castle and enjoy spectacular views of the Rhine River, and hike in the beautiful landscape around Duisburg, or near Eltville. You can choose to discover fascinating sites with a visit to the Chocolate Museum in Cologne, where you’ll be introduced to the art of chocolate making, learn about German food on a guided culinary walk in Duisburg, and a chance to taste regional wines in Eltville. Guided walks acquaint you with highlights of Cologne and Koblenz, from where you’ll take a cable car ride up to Ehrenbreitstein Castle for magnificent views of the surrounding area.
