Visit the site of the momentous events of Operation Market Garden, beginning at the famous `Bridge Too Far'. It was here that the 2nd Battalion, led by Lieutenant Colonel Frost, held out for four days in September 1944 against overwhelming odds. See a monument which honours those who participated in the mission, many of whom lost their lives and the old church in Oosterbeek, where the Allies took refuge prior to withdrawing, passing some of the fields where the landings took place. At the Airborne Museum anti-tank guns and a Sherman tank stand exactly where they were left in battle. You return to Arnhem via the Airborne Cemetery, the final resting place of 1,748 Allied troops. Middle Rhine One of the highlights of your cruise is sure to be the afternoon you spend aboard Spirit of the Rhine as she cruises from Koblenz through the UNESCO-listed Middle Rhine. Glide through a valley of steep banks cloaked in lush green forest and punctuated by the occasional fairytale castle. You'll pass the fabled Lorelei Rock, where legend has it a beautiful siren used to coax sailors to their demise ­ keep an eye out for her bronze statue as you sail safely by en route to the charming wine town of Rüdesheim where you will moor overnight. Siegfried's Museum of Mechanical Music While in Rüdesheim you might want to join this truly unique optional excursion. Siegfried Wendel's eccentric collection of 350 self-playing instruments is a veritable treat for eyes and ears. In this whimsical museum you'll find a fantastical, nostalgic and joyous cacophony of beautiful music boxes, barrel organs, hand-cranked carnival machines and early jukeboxes, all in full working order. High points include the `Puppet Orchestrion', a huge cabinet containing puppet musicians (1888) and the later `Phonoliszt Violina' a blend of piano and violins that plays in perfect harmony.
