Start your unforgettable European adventure in Amsterdam.

There’s no better way to immerse yourself fully in Amsterdam’s gezelligheid than taking an optional canal cruise in a glass-topped boat this evening.

 

Hotel: Holiday Inn Express – North Riverside

 

Day 2 | Amsterdam – Cologne – Rhine Cruise – Rhineland

 

From Amsterdam’s leafy canals to the towering spires of Cologne, your morning will be jam-packed with sights you’ll want to capture on camera as you head east into the lush landscapes of Germany. View the imposing Gothic Cologne Cathedral then head to Boppard where you’ll board your river cruise down the Rhine. Pass storybook villages, terraced vineyards and medieval castles where feuding lords must have surveyed their lands once upon a time. Watch the soul-stirring scenery of the Rhine Valley unfold as you kick back and watch the world go by. Arrive later at your hotel in the Rhineland where you’ll join your travel companions for dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

 

Hotel: Taste Hockenheim

 

Day 3 | Rhineland – Black Forest – Rhine Falls – Lucerne Region Straight out of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Germany’s Black Forest is the perfect backdrop for this morning’s scenic drive. You’ll see why its enchanting landscapes have inspired myths and fables throughout the centuries before crossing into Switzerland. A quick stop in Schaffhausen means there’s time to capture the cascading waters of the Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest waterfall, before you arrive in the scenic region of Lake Lucerne. This evening, consider an Optional Experience to a Swiss folklore show which will highlight many Swiss traditions including yodelling and alpine horn playing.

Meals: Breakfast

 

Hotel: SwissEver Zug

 

Day 4 | Lucerne orientation and free time Join your Travel Director for an orientation through the Old Town and to the ancient Chapel Bridge and Lion Monument. See the mournful, mortally wounded lion hewn from rock to commemorate the sacrifice made by the Swiss Guards who died defending Louis XVI during the French Revolution, then enjoy some time on your own.

 

You’ll then have the full day to discover why Lucerne earned its place on the ‘Grand Tour’ of Europe. You could choose to ascend to the alpine heavens, joining an optional scenic cruise across Lake Lucerne, then travel by railway and cable car into the mountains for exhilarating views.
