Riviera River Cruises is pleased to announce new Cruise, Walk & Discover excursions that can be added on to select river cruise departures starting in fall 2019, with additional excursions being planned for 2020.
The new Cruise, Walk & Discover excursions can be added on to three river cruise departures in fall 2019:
- Medieval Germany, Sept. 26, 2019, departure: Three active walks in Wertheim, Würzburg and Bamberg. Cost is $39 per person.
- The Blue Danube, Oct. 14, 2019, departure: Three active walks in Esztergom, Dürnstein and Mondsee. Cost is $39 per person.
- Cruise the Heart of Europe, Oct. 31, 2019, departure: Five active walks in Hainburg an der Donau, Passau, Bamberg, Würzburg and Rüdesheim. Cost is $59 per person.
Walks will be approximately two to 2 1/2 hours in duration and range from three to five miles in distance.
During the Wertheim walk on the Medieval Germany departure, for example, guests will leave the river behind and climb to Wertheim Castle, known for its tower. The castle was once home to the counts of Wertheim and the ruins are a reminder of the Thirty Years’ War, when it was partly destroyed in an attack. From the castle, there are great views of the Main River and the smaller Tauber River. Guests will then climb through the forest on a panoramic trail along the Taubertal, before descending to the Tauber River and following it back to Wertheim.
