Grand European Discovery
COLOGNE TO VIENNA | 15 DAYS2017 | Embrace Europe’s old-world heritage on a majestic journey along three scenic waterways—the Rhine, the Main, and the Danube rivers.
Uniworld has curated a very special new river cruise/tour that provides a vast array of choices for experiencing this part of Germany, including an in-depth exploration of its fascinating Jewish heritage. We’ve created a comprehensive Jewish Heritage program both onboard and onshore that delves deeply into the past and present, featuring Signature Lectures on the history of Jews in Europe and tailored excursions ranging from the archaeological traces of the Frankfurt ghetto and the Rothschild family to the new Jewish institution and synagogue in Munich. We’ve handpicked passionate local experts who have the most up-to-date, insider knowledge of today’s Jewish communities and who can present you with an eye-opening experience.
Choices for other exceptional excursions are plentiful. Delve into “Mad” King Ludwig’s life at his picture-book Castle Neuschwanstein and be enchanted by the opulent UNESCO-designated Würzburg Residence. Let your inner adventurer out with a visit to BMW World and “Let's Go” on a host of guided biking and hiking activities, including biking through the romantic Tauber Valley and hiking through the Tauberhase vineyards. And throughout your journey, enjoy a host of culinary experiences and sample delicious Franconian wine and hearty beer at breweries in Munich and Cologne.
