1 Frankfurt
Embark. Your adventure begins today.
2 Frankfurt

Included - Intro to Frankfurt

Take to the streets of Frankfurt to explore this dynamic city with your U Host! You’ll see some of the city’s hotspots like the Eiserner Steg, a bridge covered with famous love locks, then Römerberg, the quaint town square walled with photogenic medieval houses. Grab a bite, shop and soak in the local experience before heading to the Frankfurt cathedral. Take pictures and brush up on your history; this iconic landmark is where ten kings were crowned from 1562 to 1792.

Included - Biking Frankfurt

Join your Wellbeing Coach and U Hosts on a bike ride along the beautiful Main river, with a well-deserved pit stop for an Apfelwein or local beer at a cozy river-side bar.

U+ Excursion - Heidelberg University With Student Prison

While it has long been closed, Heidelberg University once housed misbehaving students in an on-campus prison for days or weeks at a time. Don’t worry, we won’t lock you in.

U+ Excursion - Frankfurt on Foot

Follow your U Host into the heart of Frankfurt, a dynamic financial trade city with the most imposing skyline in all of Germany. You’ll head into the heart of the bustling city to catch Kleinmarkthalle, an amazing market hall welcoming 63 vendors in 156 stalls that offer all kinds of fresh food, regional specialties and imported foods. Before hopping over to the Main Tower for a breathtaking view, don’t forget to sample some Ebbelwoi, Frankfurt’s famous cider. It will blow your taste buds away!

3 Rüdesheim

Included - Hiking Germania Monument & Forest

We’re headed to Niederwalddenkmal, a historic monument sitting above the town. Take in the panoramic views of old town and the shimmering waters of the Rhine as you hike to the top.

Included - German Corners

Follow your host on an evening walk through Koblenz, one of the country’s oldest and most beautiful towns. Vineyards, forests and exotic mountain ranges form the backdrop to a town with over 2,000 years of storied history.

Included Night Out - Night at the Castle

Whether you want to feel like royalty or look for ghosts, a night in a medieval castle is the way to do it. We’ll explore Rheinstein Castle, drink some wine in the gardens and learn about its history from the owners.

U+ Excursion - Abbey Wine

For 900 years, the Eberbach Monastery has been making wine – most notably Riesling wine. We’ll take a tour of the Abbey by candlelight and see the historical “Cabinet Cellar,” the cloisters and more while learning about the monastery’s fascinating history.

U+ Excursion - Wine Time

Follow your U Host to RheinWeinWelt, an interactive wine tasting experience. After a short introduction to the 14 wine rooms and wine “slot machines,” you’ll get 10 tokens to take with you. Use your tokens to try samples of different wines of your choosing, each stored in their own tanks with helpful descriptions. Whenever you need a break you can always head back to the main hall where cheese plates and other local treats will be waiting for you.

4 Remagen, Bonn & Cologne

Included - Rhine Rider

While this bike ride isn’t steep, it is long. We’re setting off on a 31-mile bike ride down the Rhine River, seeing plenty of parks and vineyards along the way.

Included - Intro to Cologne

Of course, you’ll see the Cathedral but there’s more to this town than that. Get a feel for old town, which is as quaint and colorful as a neighborhood can be, along with some of our favorite spots.

U+ Excursion - Cologne in Depth

Treat yourself to the best of this city with samplings of Kölsch beer, Cologne chocolate and the famous perfume, “Eau de Cologne.” You’ll also see famous sights including the Hohenzollern Bridge.

5 Wesel

Included - Wesel Bike Tour

While razed during WWII, today Wesel is a beautiful contrast of old and new. We’ll bike around town and see harbor installations, Auesee Lake and Willibrord Cathedral.

U+ Excursion - Apple Plantation

Since 1867, the Clostermann family has been growing fruit at Neuhollandshof. Take a tour of their plantation, see how an apple goes from the tree to cider and taste some of their specialties.

6 Hoorn

Included - Intro to Hoorn

Sightseeing in Hoorn is the perfect way to spend a morning, which is why we’re doing it. Once a key city during the Dutch Golden Age, you’ll get your fill of historical facades, stunning architecture and picturesque harbors.

U+ Excursion - Dutch Cheese Trail

Cheese lovers rejoice! You’re headed to Zeilzicht, a cheese farm that has been operating for over 25 years. See how the famous Dutch cheese is made and get a sampling for yourself.

7 Amsterdam

Included - Dutch Beer or Art

Take your pick between Dutch painters or Dutch beer. On this tour you can see The Night Watch by Rembrandt and other masterpieces at the Rijksmuseum or take a tour of a Dutch brewery.

U+ Excursion - By Water and Wind

Get to know the scenic neighborhood of Zaanse Schans, built along the River Zaan and home to some of the most stunning and historic windmills in Europe. Learn all about the history on a visit to a local museum and the working windmill. This neighborhood is a treasure trove of cute crafts, local shops and the most idyllic scenery you could ever imagine.

U+ Excursion - Canals and Cafés

What better way to explore Amsterdam’s canals than by water? Hop aboard an electric canal boat where, on top of the hundreds of bridges, bicycles, towers and waterways, you will sail along world famous sites like the Red Light District and the Dancing Houses. Stop off at a waterside café for an included drink to top off your introduction to Amsterdam.

U+ Excursion - Amsterdam Old and New

“Rolling on the Rhine with U”
- NSW, Australia Jun 2018 3 Helpful Votes View Photo

We are not the target age group for this cruise. It is 21-40+ year olds and we are well outside that age group! So... the decor of the ship is lovely. Modern velvets, marble, mirrors, racy prints down the hallways, cozy chairs, a rooftop ice bar and all communications via Whatsapp. Cabins and bathrooms tiny but restaurant spacious and great modern food served twice a day not three times. Brunch times varied according to port times. Dinner was st 7pm. All day coffee machine available and snacks...read more
