Day 2
Amsterdam – Rhine Cruise – Heidelberg – Rhineland
Journey through Germany's Rhine Valley, boarding a cruise past terraced vineyards, historic towns and medieval castles to St. Goar. Head to the highest castle in the Rhine River Valley for an exclusive 'Be My Guest' lunch where you'll 'Connect With Locals' in medieval surrounds and be transported back to a time of kings and knights. The old university town of Heidelberg is our next stop, with its impressive Renaissance structures, Baroque Old Town and view of the ruined red sandstone castle that towers above the city. We venture to our Rhineland hotel where we'll spend our evening at leisure.

Delve into a world of legends and fairy-tales today as you enter the enchanting Black Forest. Here, we'll 'Dive Into Culture' and witness the fine craft of cuckoo clock making, before visiting the dramatic Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen, the largest waterfall in Europe. We cross the Swiss border, admiring the exquisite alpine setting and arrive on the shores of Lake Lucerne where we will stay for the next two nights in one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - the elegant lakeside Grand Hotel Europe.
Day 4
Lucerne Orientation and Free Time
Soak up the relaxed lakeside atmosphere before your morning orientation begins. Cross the solid wooden Chapel Bridge, visit the solemn Lion Monument, commemorating the Massacre of the Swiss Guards in 1792 and spend your afternoon shopping in the Old Town for Swiss souvenirs and chocolates. Consider an Optional Experience ascending the surrounding mountains for panoramic alpine views, wander along the tranquil lake shore or stroll around the city admiring the decorative signposts and ornate façades lining the city's streets.
