River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Paris
    Wed, Apr 09, 2025

    Long a hub of French culture and cuisine, Paris is one of the most romantic destinations in the world. Over the centuries, Parisian culture has been built on the wings of inspiration. Music, film, architecture, literature, dance and the visual arts all have their brilliant place in the museums, theaters, bookstores and remarkably preserved buildings of this magnificent city. At the center of it all is the Champs-Élysées. With its inviting riverside promenade, graceful bridges and splendid views of all things Parisian, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre Museum.

  2. Day 2
    Paris
    Thu, Apr 10, 2025

    Long a hub of French culture and cuisine, Paris is one of the most romantic destinations in the world. Over the centuries, Parisian culture has been built on the wings of inspiration. Music, film, architecture, literature, dance and the visual arts all have their brilliant place in the museums, theaters, bookstores and remarkably preserved buildings of this magnificent city. At the center of it all is the Champs-Élysées. With its inviting riverside promenade, graceful bridges and splendid views of all things Parisian, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre Museum.

  3. Day 5
    Cochem
    Sun, Apr 13, 2025

    Perched on a hilltop above the city and the Moselle, a 1,000-year-old imperial castle is the signature landmark of Cochem. Its mighty rectangular keep and many small towers strike a dramatic pose against a curtain of green hills. In Cochem’s lively Old Quarter, the market square boasts old timber-framed houses that overlook Martin’s Fountain and the bay-windowed baroque Town Hall. In this historic center, the 15th-century St. Martin’s Church and the Capuchin monastery, which now serves as an artistic and cultural center, are all beautifully preserved. Wine taverns along the river offer a “green wine,” a very young wine.

  4. Day 7
    Heidelberg
    Tue, Apr 15, 2025

    Germany’s oldest university town, Heidelberg is situated in the Neckar Valley just east of the Rhine. Known as the cradle of the German Romantic movement, it also boasts beautiful baroque architecture. Heidelberg is most famous as the site of the imposing Heidelberg Castle. A magnificent red sandstone ruin perched 330 feet above the river, it was home to the Palatinate princes until it was partially destroyed by fire in the 17th century. It has been said that Heidelberg’s cityscape is so beautiful and so admired that American forces deliberately chose to avoid bombing it during World War II.

  5. Day 8
    Würzburg
    Wed, Apr 16, 2025

    Surrounded by Franconian vineyards, Würzburg was heavily damaged during World War II, but has since been completely restored. This prestigious university city is a jewel of baroque architecture. Its most pristine example of pomp and glory is the great Bishops' Residenz palace, built in 1744 for the prince-bishop; his unwavering support of artists is evidenced by the sweeping staircase and magnificent ceiling frescoes by Tiepolo. Other landmarks include the medieval, statue-lined Old Main Bridge and Marienberg Fortress, originally a Celtic hill fort and later residence of the bishops. The city remains a major wine-making center, hosting Germany's oldest and largest vineyard.

  6. Day 11
    Prague
    Sat, Apr 19, 2025

    Prague is known as the “City of a Hundred Spires” and it is easy to see why. The towering twin steeples of Týn Church and the beautiful baroque Church of St. Nicholas are among some of the city’s most notable. Best explored on foot, Prague’s Old Town is a maze of ancient cobblestone lanes with the Old Town Square at its core. Here, the medieval Astronomical Clock still chimes today and provides for its viewers a little theater with the “Walk of the Apostles” on the hour, every hour.

A few trips listed as easy within the Vikibg tour were not easy walking

This was our second Viking cruise. We chose them again because they exceeded our expectations on our first cruise.

The hotel in Paris was totally unprepared for the amount of guests that came. Room wasnt made up and I had to go get towels myself. The breakfast buffet was a disaster. They only had 3 people working the restaurant and it was painfully obvious that they were not ready for us. They tried their best. I talked to the night manager and he expressed the difficulty that they were having in hiring competent staff (seems to be a common problem). The Hyatt in the Czech Republic was execellent. Truely, the difference was night and day. I would be very reluctant to recommend the Paris Hotel to anyone. Cabin on ship was excellent.

We enjoyed our experience with Viking river cruise. We just wish our room wasn't so noisy as it seems we were located near the engine.

The trip wa excellent and the tours offered were great. The ship was clean and the staff courteous.

Their were a few bumps along the way,( none of them your fault) thoroughly enjoyed our stay down the Rhine.

Be sure you have comfortable walking shoes! We loved the walking tours. The food was excellent and just the right size portions.

We had to change ships due to low water level, Viking handled the switch as well as could be expected

If traveling with Viking Cruise line, always book your airline travel through them. If you have any problems, Viking will make sure it is fixed and the issue kept at a minimum.
