Your journey with us... Day 1: UK to Frankfurt. Fly to Frankfurt and embark your ship. Enjoy a welcome reception and dinner on board as you cruise overnight towards Miltenberg. Day 4: Strasbourg. This afternoon join an included tour and canal cruise to explore the delightful capital of the Alsace region. Discover its cobbled streets, picturesque half-timbered houses and magnificent cathedral.

Board a tourist train and travel into the centre of town to Weingut Adolf Storzel. Located just a few steps from the famous tavern-lined Drosselgasse, this family owned winery dates back to the 16th century. Your knowledgeable host will introduce you to three different white wines from the winery. A pretzel is served alongside to neutralise the taste of the different wines. After the wine tasting you will have the possibility to taste and purchase other white and red wines and different liquors and brandies. A small glass decorated with the coat of arms of the family is yours to take away as a souvenir. Afterwards, the tourist train will take you back to your ship, unless you decide to stroll back at your leisure; perhaps via the Drosselgasse! Day 2: Miltenberg to Aschaffenburg.
