ROMANTIC RHINE (JEWISH HERITAGE THEME)

Tour: WZAJ  BASEL  AMSTERDAM
Take an exciting journey to explore the legendary Rhine River and its Jewish culture and heritage. You’ll travel across Germany—with touches of Switzerland, France, and Holland along the way as you experience important and meaningful Jewish Heritage historic and cultural sites. Board your vessel in Basel, Switzerland, then head for Breisach, Germany, located at the foot of the Kaiserstuhl Mountain on the French-German border. Here you’ll find the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest, an area of unrivaled natural beauty, best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock. Continue your river cruise to Strasbourg, France, where you’ll be amazed by the red-sandstone gothic cathedral with ancient murals, the fascinating astronomical clock and the old streets of the Jewish quarter. Also, stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg’s castle, towering magnificently over the city, or stop in Mainz, one of the ShUM cities, for a guided walk and a visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum. Next up is the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, and a visit to the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum to see the impressive collection of historical self-playing instruments. You’ll pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—the most beautiful view of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Last stop in Germany is Cologne—a 2,000-year-old city known for its gothic architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral. Enjoy the opportunity to take a Jewish history tour in this fascinating city. As an exclamation point to this wonderful Rhine river cruise, you’ll spend time in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam, the city where Anne Frank lived and wrote her famous diary. There is much to do with the world-famous museums and abundance of restaurants amongst the classic architecture and charming canals. The best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.” Do not miss a visit to the ancient Jewish quarter and join onboard lectures to learn more about the European Jewish culture, history and traditions.
