We depart mid afternoon and make our way to Hull for the evening sailing to Rotterdam. There are many facilities on board for you to enjoy, including a cinema, gaming tables, live music, café and restaurants.
After a morning disembarkation we make our way through the Netherlands and Germany to Kork which is situated close to Strasbourg, with arrival in time for evening dinner.
This morning we make our way to Obernai, a pretty town in the Alsace wine region. In the afternoon we visit Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace. Here you can gaze away at the mesmerising Gothic cathedral, roam the old town’s twisting alleys lined with crooked half-timbered houses or enjoy a drink in one of the cosy winestubs (Alsation taverns) by the canals in Petite France before we return to our hotel.
Today we visit Freiberg, time to visit the lively farmers market which surrounds the Cathedral in the main square. In the afternoon we visit the picturesque Titisee and return to our hotel via Triberg.
We visit the famous spa town of Baden Baden today. Later we travel along the Black Forest High Road making a coffee stop in Freudenstat which has the largest market square in Germany.
After breakfast we make our return journey to Europort, making a lunch stop in Maastricht. Lying on the far southern side of the Netherlands and bordered by Belgium and Germany, Maastricht escaped war damage in the 1940’s and is therefore rich in history and culture. However, a number of different invasions over the years have contributed greatly to the Maastricht of today, creating a distinctive pan-European character, strongly reflected in its restaurants and their many flavours. We make our way to Rotterdam for the evening sailing to Hull.
After a morning disembarkation we make our way home.
NB: A small overnight holdall is required for this holiday
