River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Prague
    Wed, Nov 26, 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.

  2. Day 2
    Prague

  3. Day 5
    Würzburg
    Sun, Nov 30, 2025

    In the heart of Würzburg’s Old Town with a backdrop of the historic Falkenhaus and Gothic Marienkapelle, the Advent Market showcases a range of mouthwatering traditional food and sweets that are customary in Bavaria for the festive season. The scent of spices fills the air with stalls providing tasty treats, including Christmas cookies and roasted almonds. Local artisans can be seen in action, creating decorative pieces for the holiday season, from glass, straw, pewter and pottery to wooden toys.

  4. Day 6
    Heidelberg
    Mon, Dec 01, 2025

    In Heidelberg's Marktplatz, a replica of the world's largest wine barrel, the Heidelberg Tun, is on display and a highlight of the city's festive market. Enchanting wooden huts are decorated with reindeer, ornaments and colorful ribbons. Department store windows reflect picturesque winter scenes. Smaller markets feature unique handicrafts, such as hand-carved figurines or handblown ornaments, while Karlsplatz, framed by the romantic backdrop of Heidelberg Castle, is home to one of Germany's most beautiful ice rinks.

  5. Day 11
    Paris
    Sat, Dec 06, 2025

    Paris’s landmarks come alive during the Christmas season as twinkling lights adorn the city’s streets. Shop windows are a grand affair, depicting scenes from fairy tales, Santa Claus and his workshop, or a snowy winter wonderland. While it rarely snows in Paris, there is always the chance of a dusting, adding to the magical atmosphere. From November on, leading department stores, including Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, present their seasonal displays, often featuring clever animation; their grand openings are hotly anticipated each year.

  6. Day 12
    Paris
    Sun, Dec 07, 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.

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.
