Rhine Southbound Cruise Map

The route is a true ode to the beautiful. A real classic and a course for epicures at the same time, conducting you through Germany, Switzerland and France. Scenic wine-growing regions in Alsace are a feast for the eyes and the palate alike, as there are of course plenty of fine wines to drink here. Romantic shores, historic castles and cities, the idyll of the Black Forest take it from us that even the familiar looks quite different from the river. The highpoint of this trip is surely Basle the city of culture. The 40 museums here certainly give you plenty of choice.

ITINERARY

Day 1 Cologne    
Cologne, the old Cathedral city, is also one of the most important traffic hubs and commercial centres in Germany, with world famous trade fairs and a busy shipping traffic. Cologne developed out of a Roman colony and looks back on a history of more than 2000 years. In the Middle Ages it was one of the leading towns in Germany. The Second World War destroyed most of the inner city; these parts were rebuilt in a modern style. The landmark and emblem of the city is the Cathedral, a masterpiece of High Gothic architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Other tourist attractions are the town hall, the Malakoff Tower, the St Martin Church and the old abbey.

Day 2   Boppard
The imperial town of Boppard is located close to the narrow horseshoe bend of the Rhine. In the 4th century the Romans replaced their citadel by a stone fortress with 28 towers, which however was soon overrun by Germanic tribes. The former free imperial city was subjugated in 1327 by the elector Balduin von Trier. Balduin immediately had the electoral Trier castle built, thereby forcing the uncooperative inhabitants to accept his rule.

Day 3    Rastatt
Rastatt is a traffic hub and an important industrial centre. In the 18th century Rastatt was the residence of the Markgraves of Baden-Baden. It has a magnificent palace built in the Baroque style, many parks and a beautiful parish town church.

Strassburg (Kehl)
From the Roman era up until the present day, Strasbourg has played a significant role and had an eventful history. The impressive buildings still bear testament to this today. Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace and a European metropolis with many research-, educational- and cultural institutions; it is also the seat of the European Council of Ministers.


Day 4   Basel
Basel is the third largest city in Switzerland, a traffic hub with a Rhine port, chief banking centre and an important industrial city as well. Basel lies in the Dreilandereck, the meeting place of three countries near the French and German border. In Basel, you can look forward to much more than just sightseeing and shopping. You can taste exotic chocolate or go on exciting excursions. For example, to the Rhine Falls near the town of Schaffhausen.

Day 5   Breisach
Breisach is a little wine-growing town with centralised wine cellars. Already settled in the Bronze Age, in the Middle Ages it became an important stronghold. On a rocky hill above the town there is the Stephan Cathedral, started in 1200; it was destroyed in 1945 but has now been restored.

 Strassburg (Kehl)
Arrive at 19:00 hrs

Day 6   Strassburg (Kehl)
From the Roman era up until the present day, Strasbourg has played a significant role and had an eventful history. The impressive buildings still bear testament to this today. Strasbourg is the capital of the Alsace and a European metropolis with many research-, educational- and cultural institutions; it is also the seat of the European Council of Ministers.

Day 7   Mainz
Mainz is a historic old town, a former Electoral residence, seat of an Archbishop and also the city of Gutenberg. The city is a focal point of the western end of the Rhine-Main economic region. Around 1450 Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of printing with movable type, set up his press in Mainz. Points of interest are the St Martin and St Stephen cathedrals, the castle of Mainz and the Gutenberg Museum.

Koblenz
Koblenz is not just where history meets modernity, but also where the Rhine meets the Mosel: at the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) the two rivers join each other in front of the equestrian statue of Emperor William I.

Day 8   Cologne
Cologne, the old Cathedral city, is also one of the most important traffic hubs and commercial centres in Germany, with world famous trade fairs and a busy shipping traffic. Cologne developed out of a Roman colony and looks back on a history of more than 2000 years. In the Middle Ages it was one of the leading towns in Germany. The Second World War destroyed most of the inner city; these parts were rebuilt in a modern style. The landmark and emblem of the city is the Cathedral, a masterpiece of High Gothic architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Other tourist attractions are the town hall, the Malakoff Tower, the St Martin Church and the old abbey.
