Three Rivers Cruise

Nuremberg →  Amsterdam

8 Days

This romantic cruise travels along the Rhine Main and Danube Rivers, which are undoubtedly Europe’s most important and beautiful rivers.

Start your cruise in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg and continue through Germany all the way to Amsterdam on the North Sea. You will visit the fascinating cities of Cologne, Würzburg and Bamberg and cruise the most important connection between the Danube and the Main: the Main-Danube canal.


After embarking in the second largest town in Bavaria at midday, you have time to become familiar with your AMADEUS ship. Your cruise ship weighs anchor in the early evening and cruises along the Main-Danube Canal, putting your first river kilometers behind you. After the Welcome Cocktail in the Panorama Bar, the Welcome Dinner will be the perfect introduction to this unforgettable trip.

Stay Nuremberg
Departure at 6pm

The Imperial city of Bamberg is a perfect place to begin your exploration. This medieval town is a UNESCCO World Cultural Heritage site. This medieval town retains its medieval layout of three settlement areas, and Baroque facades. As you take in the seven hills of Bamberg, each topped with a stunning church, enjoy a beer from one of the many local breweries. Relax onboard this afternoon while cruising the Main River. This evening enjoy a talk about the creation and importance of the Rhine-Main-Danube canal.

Stay Bamberg
8am - 12.30pm

Today, visit Würzburg, a city in Bavaria known for lavish baroque and rococo architecture, located in the center of the Franconian wine country. Experience the many beautiful sights of the town such as the marketplace, the Maria Chapel and the old main bridge, the Marienberg Fortress and the surrounding vineyards. As the central hub for wineries in this part of Germany, Würzburg is the perfect place to visit some of the local wineries for tastings. From Würzburg, you can venture to nearby Rothenburg ob der Tauber, one of the most perfectly preserved medieval towns in Europe. Its towers, city gates, walls, and half-timbered gables have remained unchanged since the Thirty Years’ War. Return to the ship and continue down the river Main.

Stay Würzburg
9am - 6pm

Two historic cities on the river Main are on the agenda for today or enjoy a day of cruising. In Wertheim, explore the medieval streets with its half-timbered houses and glass museum, all watched over by the two-clock tower on the hill. Continue to Miltenberg, a city flanked by the river Main and an incredible forested hillside. In this unique town, see one of the oldest inns in Germany, the Hotel “Zum Reisen” and the Miltenburg Castle. This is another wonderful opportunity to sample some of the region’s red wines. After a relaxing afternoon cruising, join your fellow travellers for a beautifully prepared dinner.

Aufenthalt Wertheim
7am - 9am
Stay Miltenberg
12.30pm - 1pm

Today we visit the “Town of Towers,” so named because of the 16 towers still standing along the original city wall surrounding the town. Oberwesel is home to two Gothic churches located on opposite ends of town – both worth a visit. In the shadow of the Schönburg Castle, enjoy a glass of the city’s famous Riesling wine as you take in the beautiful views. Back onboard this afternoon, cruise through the scenic passage of the Loreley.

Stay Oberwesel
9am - 2pm

Awake in Cologne, the fourth-largest city in Germany, with its skyline marked by the twin spires of the Cologne Cathedral among modern buildings. New blends with the old in this metropolis. After a morning in the city, you may want to visit nearby Siebengebirge National Park and Drachenfels rock. Germany’s first nature reserve, with the world-renowned Hotel Petersberg, is a great way to spend the afternoon. Tonight is a special night on board, the Captain’s Gala Dinner.

Stay Cologne
00.01am - 7pm

Spend the morning cruising the waterways of the Netherlands or take the opportunity to disembark in Utrecht and explore the countryside which includes a visit to a local factory to learn about Holland’s famous export – cheese. Rejoin the vessel in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. With a canal system as intricate and unique as Venice, this city is known for its 17th century architecture and many museums.  Before returning to the ship this evening, be sure to catch a glimpse of the bridge lights reflecting off the canal water.
