    Day 1

    Vienna (Embark), Austria

    Arrive at Vienna International Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.

    Day 2

    Vienna, Austria

    Get ready for a myriad of fascinating excursions just waiting to be discovered, such as a “Morning with the Masters” at the Vienna Art History Museum where the doors will open early just for you as you join an art historian for a tour, or a panoramic tour of the city’s Ringstrasse, a circular grand boulevard that surrounds Vienna’s Old Town historic district and famous monuments. The Viennese’s love for music, food, drink and grandiose architecture is abundant and evident everywhere you’ll go. Itching to encounter Vienna in an authentic way? Look no further than its beloved pubs, coffeehouses and wine taverns serving everything from Wiener Schnitzel to apple strudel to Grüner Vetliner wines. If there’s ever been a time to indulge, it’s now.

    Day 3

    Vienna, Austria

    Enjoy a full day of leisure in Vienna, with the choice to explore the “City of Waltzes” and dive into its vast artistic and musical legacy. The city is known for its Imperial palaces, famous residents and expansive art collections. See the highlights as you take in Old Town’s art and food, including scrumptious pastries, or discover Viennese history at the World Museum Vienna, renowned for its collection of Habsburg family treasures.

    Day 4

    Dürnstein, Austria

    Natural wonders of the Wachau Valley and exquisite food and wine are on the menu for your day in Dürnstein. Meander around the town’s beautiful streets lined with wildly photogenic buildings and restaurants teeming with wine produced on the outskirts of town. You won’t want to miss a sampling of the region’s most acclaimed wines at Austria’s oldest wine estate, Nikolaihof. Join a saffron workshop and get a fascinating look at the making of the spice as precious as gold.

    Day 5

    Engelhartszell, Passau, Germany

    Arrive in the afternoon in the “City of Three Rivers,” Passau, where medieval lanes, tunnels, cathedrals and archways fuse with modern shopping malls and buildings. Marvel at the Italian baroque-style St. Stephen’s Church, which holds the second largest church pipe organ in the world (way to go, Passau) or set out on a panoramic tour of the city with mini hikes to the best vistas. Your afternoon brings new experiences in the forest-dotted district of Engelhartszell. Experience Bavaria’s great outdoors on a scenic bike ride along the Danube to Engelhartszell.

    Day 6

    Regensburg, Germany

    Spend the morning discovering Regensburg’s long line of dukes, kings and bishops that called the former Bavarian capital and Free Imperial City home. Regensburg boasts the largest medieval old town north of the Alps (over 1,500 listed buildings), a prominent skyline, and a large collection of museums, exhibits and theaters. Find your need for speed with a tour of the state-of-the-art BMW factory. Tour the carmaker’s cutting-edge plant and learn how it’s manufactured millions of cars. Futuristic and antiquated, it’s the best of both worlds in Regensburg.

    Day 7

    Roth, Nuremberg, Germany

    Roth, Nuremberg
    Explore Nuremberg’s role in German history. Like much of Germany during the World War II era, Nuremberg and its residents faced extreme oppression. To commemorate Germany and its inhabitants’ struggle during that time period, the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds museum was erected. The fascinating exhibits provide travellers the unique opportunity to understand and unravel Nazi Germany.

    Day 8

    Bamberg, Germany

    Bamberg in its entirety is not only described as beautiful, but has often been regarded as one of Germany’s most attractive settlements, with its ravishing architecture, intersecting canals and rivers, and charming stores and restaurants, all framed by rolling hills. Browse antique stores, taste-test smoked beer at a brewery (did we mention it’s the Franconian beer capital?) and marvel at its historic building-lined narrow medieval streets. After you’ve experienced Bamberg’s village life, see it from above with a hike up Michaelsberg Hill, taking in the sights and sounds as you trek through tranquil paths.

    Day 9

    Volkach, Germany

    Your day brings you to Volkach and the heart of the Franconian wine country. It’s a region full of overwhelming natural beauty, rooted communities, marvellous flavours and villages that have been making wine for countless generations. Explore the town and its surrounding countryside, with stops at the breathtaking Main horseshoe bend, the Gothic-styled pilgrimage church of St. Mary of the Assumption and Vogelsburg Castle, where we’ll treat you to stunning views, Franconian Prosecco, regional chocolates and more.

    Day 10

    Würzburg, Germany

    The opulent Würzburg Residence, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers a true sense of the region’s history through the European Renaissance. It even contains the world’s largest ceiling fresco by Tiepolo. Get outdoors and enjoy a scenic hike around Festung Marienberg, a prominent landmark that was previously home to a long line of prince-bishops.

    Day 11

    Miltenberg, Germany

    The perfect German town calls for a day full of quintessential German experiences. Resting on the left bank of the Main, Miltenberg is classically quaint with its charming squares, farmland, biking and pedestrian paths, impressive castles and one of Germany’s oldest inns. It’s so picture-perfect that the historic centre of the town has often served as a filming location.

    Day 12

    Rüdesheim, Germany

    Your floating hotel arrives in Rüdesheim, one of the most charming ports of call in the Rhine Valley. This city has a long history going back to Roman times and is famous for the Drosselgasse, a narrow, bustling lane of shops and wine bars, as well as its impressive Niederwald Monument, built to celebrate the re-establishment of the German empire in the late 19th century. You may choose to visit a renowned vineyard or, for a more active jaunt, take a vineyard hike that includes a picnic with the wine made famous by the region.

    Day 13

    Cologne, Germany

    Today you get to experience Cologne’s many treasures, including a stroll with a local expert through Old Town to the city’s iconic UNESCO-listed Gothic Cologne Cathedral.

    Day 14

    Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    Experience the magic and beauty of Amsterdam via a canal cruise, before visiting the Rijksmuseum, home to Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, or strolling through Amsterdam’s canal-lined streets. Holland’s largest city, Amsterdam has been an international port and financial centre for 400 years, endowing it with a cosmopolitan flair to match its historic architecture. Here, even the simplest shop has a distinctive charm, and every street has a story to tell. You’re going to want to listen.

    Day 15

    Amsterdam (Disembark), the Netherlands

    Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for your flight home.
