The Romantic Rhine: Basel to Amsterdam featuring Oberammergau - Northbound
The Romantic Rhine: Basel to Amsterdam featuring Oberammergau – Northbound
Along the river Rhine… where mountains rise abruptly from the water’s edge, ancient castles perch aloft, keeping watch over comings and goings, gentle valleys and ancient winelands lure, spas give respite, cathedrals speak to powerful times, plains and woods catch the eye, and a river travels, connecting centuries of history, cities of the arts and crossroads of thought.
It happens once, every ten years… when, as they have for nearly four centuries, the citizens of a little village in the Bavarian Alps come together to create a unique and moving performance event that travelers all over the world come to see… On this cruise, you become part of the experience when you witness the power and pageantry of the Oberammergau Passion Play. The Rhine Valley is nirvana for authors, artists and travelers of every interest. Here, mountains rise abruptly from the water’s edge, ancient castles perch aloft, gentle valleys calm, age-old winelands lure, spas give respite, cathedrals inspire, plains and woods catch the eye, and a great river runs through it – connecting centuries of history and culture. Experience it your way in riverside villages, country retreats and centuries-old cities during a choice of included shore excursions.
