Avalon Waterways Central European Experience (Eastbound) (WRN)

8 days Remich to Nuremberg 
This river cruise through central Europe will take you from Remich to Nuremberg on the Moselle, Rhine, and Main Rivers. Embark on your European river cruise in Luxembourg on the enchanting Moselle River. Make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge. The wine village of Bernkastel, with Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards, will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses still standing from the Middle Ages. Continue through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—considered the most beautiful view of the Rhine River—and see the rock of the Lorelei and ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Stop in Rüdesheim, a quintessential Rhine Valley wine town, before proceeding into the Main River. Visit the magnificent Bishop’s Residenz in Würzburg and marvel at medieval Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
