Itinerary

Day 1
Nuremberg, Germany

Located on the Pegnitz River is the second largest city of Bavaria and incredibly energetic city of Nuremberg. Emerging from the uplands of Franconia, Nuremberg is also close to the Main-Danube Canal. With official records dating back to 1050 this incredible city has a very long history, unfortunately only a handful of historic buildings survived the damage of WW2. The most significant remaining building is the Church of St. Sebald, a breathtaking example of gothic and renaissance master craft.  As well as museums, a Renaissance city hall, and customs house, there is an imperial castle towering above them all.

Day 3
Kitzingen, Germany

Within the Franconian part of the German state of Bavaria is the town of Kitzingen. Surrounded by extensive vineyards, this town is regarded as the largest wine producer in Bavaria. One of the main landmarks in the town is the Leaning Tower, which was built during the 13th century and distinctively recognisable for its crooked roof. According to legend, the workers who were working on the tower ran out of water, so instead used wine to create mortar – thus causing the top of the tower to lean. A wander inside the tower will enable you to explore the town’s carnival (Fasching) museum.

Day 3
Wurzburg, Germany

Wurzburg is located in the German state of Bavaria, along the River Main. The Wurzburger Residenz and the Marienberg Fortress show off the impressive Baroque architecture found in this historic city and are two of the most popular places to visit.

Known as the city of 100 churches, many of these are still intact and help to give Wurzburg a fairytale feel. The most notable is Käppele, a small church known by this colloquial name and which features famous artworks and a chapel decorated with artificial bones and skulls. The city also lies within the Franconian wine region and is therefore a great place to taste some of the local vintages.

Day 4
Wertheim, Germany

The historical town of Wertheim am Main is situated at the confluence of the Main and Tauber rivers. Visitors can tour the ruins of Wertheim Castle, which offers great panoramic views over the medieval town centre and the surrounding hills.

The town comes to life during the summer months with Wertheim’s own version of Oktoberfest taking place and a medieval festival being held in the castle grounds. There is also a collection of designer outlet stores at Wertheim Village.

Day 5
Koblenz, Germany

Originally founded as a Roman town in 9 BC, Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Situated at the junction of the Rhine and Moselle River, it is surrounded by spurs of the Eifel, Hunsrück, Westerwald, and Taunus mountains. The point at which the two rivers meet is known as “Deutsches Eck (German Corner), which is the site of a settlement, founded in 1216 by German Knights, and today, it features an impressive monument dedicated to Kaiser Wilhelm I. Koblenz is home to a series of squares and statues which make for a pleasant stroll. There are also many historic structures in the city including the 13th century fortress, 18th century Electoral Palace and a series of medieval churches.

Day 5
Rudesheim, Germany

Located at the foot of the Taunus Mountains and at the heart of the Rhine River is the town of Rudesheim. Being in the Rhine Gorge, Rudesheim is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a historic winemaking town.

Day 6
Cologne, Germany

As the fourth largest city in Germany and the largest city on the Rhine River, Cologne is regarded as the historic, cultural and economic capital of the Rhineland. It is highly regarded for its trade fairs, cathedral, perfume, and Koelsch beer. It was also once a significant part of the Roman Empire, and the remains of many Roman buildings and town walls are still visible today. There is a range of Roman artefacts on display in the Roemisches Germanisches Museum, which is well worth a visit.

Cologne is also home to the French Gothic style Kolner Dom Cathedral, for which construction began in 1248 but remained unfinished for 600 years. The structure - which can still be visited today - is made up of two 157 metre-high spires, buttresses, pillars and arches – which collectively support the central nave. The remains of the kings who followed the star to Bethlehem are believed to have been contained within the south tower.

Day 7
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Regarded as the Venice of the north, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam is made up of a series of 90 islands, which are connected by almost 1,200 bridges. Today, Amsterdam is a city of contrasts, with many people being attracted to this vibrant destination for its range of bars and night clubs. On the other hand, Amsterdam is home many renowned architectural structures, insightful museums and beautiful gardens.

The Royal Palace was originally built in the 17th century to serve as a town hall, but is now one of three palaces in the Netherlands to be under disposal of the monarchy. In the springtime, be sure to visit the Keukenhof Gardens, where seven million flower bulbs create a beautiful display of bold and bright colours.
