Welcome to Zurich. You will be met and transferred from the airport to the dock in Basel. A warm welcome awaits you from your Captain and crew as your board your Evergreen Tours river cruise ship. After boarding, enjoy some time at your leisure to explore the Rhine-side town of Basel. This evening join your fellow travellers for a cocktail reception followed by a welcome dinner.

Day 2: Breisach
The beautiful Black Forest region of Germany has long been a fairy tale destination. Arrive in Breisach and enjoy free time in the village or on board.

Youre Invited: A typical Gasthof owned by a local family with a presentation and tasting of Black Forest gateau

Day 3: Strasbourg
This morning take a guided walking tour of Strasbourg, the capital of the Alsace region in northeastern France and seat of the European Parliament. Visit La Petit France, home to some of Strasbourg’s prettiest and most photogenic streets and buildings with half-timbered townhouses leaning out over the narrow cobbled streets. This afternoon is at leisure to explore the town or relax onboard.

Enjoy free time there before returning to the ship for lunch and an afternoon sailing.

Day 5: Koblenz
Cruise to the 2000 year old town of Koblenz, which is situated at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. Visit the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the opposite side of the river, part of the Prussian defences against the French in the 19th century, and later used as a headquarters for the American military during WWII. Enjoy free time to wander through the town and take in the views. In the afternoon, sail through the spectacular Rhine Gorge, passing countless castles and vineyards as well as the infamous Lorelei statue and Pfalzgrafenstein Castle, which was built on an island in the middle of the river as a medieval toll station. Countless vineyards and medieval castles line the shores of this section of the river, with photo opportunities at every bend.

Cologne is one of Germany's largest and most modern cities largely due to a rebuilding plan post WWII, and it has many different museums and galleries including a Roman artefact museum.
