The Romantic Rhine: Amsterdam to Basel – Southbound on ms Grace
Discover the heritage and beauty of the River Rhine, on our 7-night river cruises from Amsterdam to Basel aboard one of Tauck’s intimate riverboats. “From one enchanting aspect to another in ceaseless procession… Never an unlovely one…” – words written by Mark Twain, who settled his family in Heidelberg in 1878, of the River Rhine… where mountains rise abruptly from the water’s edge, ancient castles perch aloft, keeping watch over comings and goings, gentle valleys and ancient winelands lure, spas give respite, cathedrals speak to powerful times, plains and woods catch the eye, and a river travels – connecting centuries of history, cities of the arts and crossroads of thought. Visit the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland, exploring regional delights in the historic cities, towns and countryside linked by the Rhine. Set your own pace with choices along the way: castle visits, bicycling, mountain heights, a spa resort and more.
Private dinner at Schloss Ehreshoven, choices of bicycle excursions in Strasbourg & Koblenz, cogwheel train up Mt. Pilatus, wine tasting in the Alsatian hills, choice of walking tour or spa visit in Baden-Baden, visits to historic cities along the Rhine
