Exploring Europe with A-Rosa
Exploring Europe with A-Rosa

A city break sounds good. But a city break in multiple cities sounds even better. And this is exactly what you can look forward to when you board your A-Rosa ship. The best crêpes in the city? Shopping streets that will set your heart racing? Or how about that quirky museum you’ve heard so much about?

Everything is literally at the doorstep of your floating hotel room. A-Rosa's berths in the major cities of Europe are mostly in the city centres, so when you arrive in a destination, grab your handbag or backpack, and get going! Take photos, make memories, experience a new place! Alone or one of A-Rosa's guided tours. By foot or by bicycle. Your holiday, your decision.

And as your premium hotel moves from city to city, you have everything you would expect from a premium hotel on deck – views of the spectacular landscape, delicious drinks, minigolf, a spa and a whole lot of sunshine. Whether you’re in your spacious cabin, at the pool or in our restaurant. Simply drift along and enjoy your dream holiday, which has just become a reality.
