Itinerary

Day One

Make your own way to Germany and join Olympia. Enjoy dinner and your first evening on board.

Day Two

You'll have time to explore the historic riverside town of Andernach this morning, before Olympia sails south through the Rhine Gorge. Passing beneath the fabled Lorelei you'll head to Rudesheim.

This afternoon, join our optional excursion to see the quirky wonders of Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett, and enjoy a wine tasting before you explore the town's narrow streets, the most celebrated of which is the Drosselgasse.

Day Three

Early risers will notice Olympia leave her moorings before breakfast, heading to a lunchtime appointment in Mannheim. Join the optional excursion to beautiful Heidelberg, the 'Student Prince' city, and explore the twisting streets and lanes of one of Europe's most romantic settings, before re-joining the Olympia in Speyer, once one of the most important cities in the Holy Roman Empire.

Day Four

Around breakfast time today Olympia arrives in Plittersdorf. From here, an optional excursion offers the chance to visit to the elegant spa town of Baden-Baden before rejoining Olympia in Strasbourg.

In the afternoon, a second optional excursion brings the opportunity to discover Strasbourg, home to the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, where the narrow streets and medieval buildings of the Petite France quarter create a beguiling maze criss-crossed with canals.

Day Five

Olympia arrives this morning in the quaint town of Breisach, from where you can join our included half-day excursion through the Black Forest. See Freiburg's spectacular red sandstone cathedral, and explore its altstadt (old town), before we return to Breisach.

This afternoon, you'll have time to enjoy Breisach - the views out over the forest region from atop its Gothic cathedral are lovely - before a Farewell Dinner on board in the company of the Captain and your fellow passengers.

Day Six

Bid farewell to Olympia, and begin your journey home.
