AmaWaterways Enchanting Rhine // Germany + France

Screen+Shot+2019-09-12+at+11.20.21+AM.jpg

From Basel to Amsterdam. Grand cities blend in perfect harmony with their historic past and their progressive future. You have a front-row seat on a luxury journey that takes you along the Rhine and through its designated-UNESCO World Heritage Site with its 40 castles strung like pearls on its river banks and charming villages. Countries: France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland.

As we prepare for the June 2020 sailing down the Enchanting Rhine, we invite you to explore some of the amazing sights, tastes and experiences that await you in the first two ports of Germany and France.

  • FIRST PORT // BREISACH. We dock in Breisach, situated on the German side of the Rhine and directly facing the Alsatian region in France. Some of you may be going to France to visit the Alsatian Village of Riquewihr, while others will tour Freiburg & Breisach or maybe a bike tour through the vineyards of Breisach. (tours spotlighted below)

  • SECOND PORT // STRASBOURG. Capital of the German speaking French region of Alsace. Strasbourg is one of Europe's most attractive cities. Once controlled by Germany you will tour a section of town designed with precise order and structure. The history covered in the tour is fascinating with the region changing hands 4 times in 75 years between France and Germany.

BREISACH

Rising above vineyards and the Rhine, Breisach is where the Black Forest spills into Alsace. From the cobbled streets lined with pastel-painted houses you'd never guess that 85% of the town was flattened in WWII, so successful has been the reconstruction. Vauban's star-shaped French fortress-town of Neuf-Brisach (New Breisach), which made the Unesco World Heritage list in 2008, sits 4km west of Breisah.

FREIBURG

One of Germany's prettiest old quarters, with its characteristic bächle - the narrow channels of water that run alongside the pavements. Add to that a wealth of culture and history, lots of cafés and cosy bars, delicious regional food and scenic surroundings. Experience it for yourself with a stroll through the old quarter. The square is the largest in the city centre, and hosts a market every day except Sunday.

RIQUEWIHR, FRANCE

The jewel in the crown - famous for the Riesling and other great Alsace wines produced here - and looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century. Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in Alsace.

STRASBOURG

The capital city of Alsace, offers flavors of both France and Germany because of its borderline location. Enjoy a panoramic tour past the stunning Parc de l’Orangerie, the European Parliament and the Place de la République. For the active adventurer, you can take a guided bike ride through this captivating city and Parc de l’Orangerie.
