Central European Experience with 2 Nights in

Prague (Westbound)

10 Day River Cruise Prague to Remich

Vacation Overview

This Central European river cruise on the Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers begins with two overnights in Prague. Before boarding your Avalon Suite Ship®, explore one of Europe’s most magical cityscapes in the Golden City of Prague. See its best-known treasures like St. Vitus Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece that dominates the skyline, the Astronomical Clock, and Hradčany Castle grounds.

Embark on your cruise on the Main-Danube Canal to some of Germany’s most intriguing cities. Also, sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, considered the most beautiful view of the Rhine River. See ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the heart of the Moselle region, the wine village of Bernkastel, surrounded by Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards, awaits with charming narrow streets and half-timbered houses, which have been standing since the Middle Ages. Sample some of the famed wines of the area, then sail along the enchanting Moselle River on your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome—with remnants of ancient Rome still found. A fascinating experience in the traditions and beauty of Central Europe.
