Highlights of this cruise:
Cologne, the old Cathedral city, is also one of the most important traffic hubs and commercial centres in Germany, with world famous trade fairs and a busy shipping traffic. Cologne developed out of a Roman colony and looks back on a history of more than 2000 years. In the Middle Ages it was one of the leading towns in Germany. The Second World War destroyed most of the inner city; these parts were rebuilt in a modern style. The landmark and emblem of the city is the Cathedral, a masterpiece of High Gothic architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Other tourist attractions are the town hall, the Malakoff Tower, the St Martin Church and the old abbey.
Amsterdam is located in the provinces of Noord-Holland. Including its ten outer suburbs, Amsterdam has a population of over one million inhabitants, forming the largest conurbation in what is known as “Randstad Holland”. The city is the hub and cornerstone of the Dutch economy thanks mainly to its importance as a commercial centre and the country’s second largest port. Amsterdam is unusual in many ways, i.e. it has more than 2000 architectural monuments, world-class museums and historic canals, but also its unique and liberal atmosphere makes it stand out.
Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands, is located on both banks of the Nieuwe Maas, the southern arm of the Rhine, joined by the little River Rotte. Since the opening of the Europoort in 1966, Rotterdam has been the largest port in the world, and in consequence has developed into a gigantic commercial and industrial centre whose full potential is still very far from being realised.
Thanks to its port, Antwerp was an important centre of trade and commerce even before historical records began. In addition to its long established traditions in banking and insurance, the continual expansion and modernisation of the port has seen the emergence of a multitude of trades and industries. Today Greater Antwerp is the biggest industrial conurbation in Belgium. Antwerp’s international reputation is partly due to the diamond industry and the special role the city plays in the diamond trade worldwide. The city’s remarkable reputation does not just rest on its trade and industry, it is also the cultural capital of Flanders.
The twin town of Bernkastel-Kues is located at a wide bend in the Mosel. Kues and Bernkastel have been united since 1905 and joined with a bridge. The area has been settled for a very long time; a village from the Early Stone Age was discovered in Kues, the oldest known settlement along the Mosel. The city’s tourist attractions include the beautiful market square with the town hall, the St Michael fountain, the half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th centuries and the parish church of St Michael.
Koblenz is not just where history meets modernity, but also where the Rhine meets the Mosel: at the “Deutsches Eck” (“German Corner”) the two rivers join each other in front of the equestrian statue of Emperor William I.
