Great Journey through Europe

Great Journey through Europe

This extraordinary 11-day “Grand Tour” of Europe features an incredible combination of river, rail, lake and mountain travel including five nights aboard the Amadeus Silver III. Journey through the western center of the Continent through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands, cruising the fabled Rhine River. This program features five UNESCO World Heritage sites: Cologne’s Gothic cathedral; the Middle Rhine Valley; the Alsatian city of Strasbourg; Bern’s Old Town; and the Jungfrau-Aletsch region of the Swiss Alps. Visit medieval Rüdesheim in the heart of Germany’s wine country and the historical treasures of romantic Heidelberg. Spend two nights each in Zermatt and Lucerne, Switzerland; ride aboard three legendary railways—the Gornergrat Bahn for breathtaking views of the Matterhorn, the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Andermatt and the Pilatus Railway, the world’s steepest cogwheel railway; and enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Lucerne. This is the trip of a lifetime at an exceptional value. Complement your journey with the two-night Amsterdam Post-Program Option.
