Central European Experience - Remich to Prague

This river cruise through central Europe will take you from Remich to the gothic skyline of Prague on the Moselle, Rhine, and Main Rivers.

Embark on your European river cruise in Luxembourg on the enchanting Moselle River. Make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge. The wine village of Bernkastel, with Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards, will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses still standing from the Middle Ages.

Continue through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—considered the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River—and see the rock of the Lorelei and ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Stop in Rüdesheim, a quintessential Rhine Valley wine town, before proceeding into the Main River. Visit the magnificent Bishop’s Residenz in Würzburg and marvel at medieval Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your journey concludes in Prague, one of Europe’s most magical cities. See its treasures, such as St. Vitus Cathedral, a gothic masterpiece that dominates the skyline, the Astronomical Clock, and Charles Bridge—the oldest bridge in the city. In your free time get a taste of the local cuisine with plum dumplings and Pilsner—the perfect ending to this unforgettable European river cruise vacation!

Reviews

"Experience on Avalon Visionary excellent.Hotel stays at both ends less so."

24th August 2017 - Mrs Lesley Macpherson

"Clean and comfortable suite. The food was all that you could wish for and more..."

6th August 2017 - Mr John Cousins

"Maintained the excellent standards we encountered first time round."

28th June 2017 - Mr Donald Hodgkins

Our first cruise, on the Danube which we thoroughly enjoyed, was on a brand new boat so this time round I felt that a five year old boat might be showing signs of wear. I needn't have worried, it was immaculate. On P deck the club lounge is always handy but in general the cabins are well laid out, the crew were without exception polite, friendly and competent and the food was simply wonderful. The local guides at each stopping point were informative and pretty fluent in English. We were additionally lucky with the weather and the people we chose to sit with (Americans or Canadians). Naturally we would have no reservation in recommending Avalon and the only criticisms I would make are that I considered the price of the optional tours high and that the Hilton Hotel in Prague is by no means as convenient as the Intercontinental.

My criticisms were minor, the arrangements were faultless and I cannot readily think how you could improve upon them

"Wonderful staff - very helpful and willing..."
