    Itinerary

    Day 1

    May 7, 2021 - Depart the U.S.

    Day 2

    May 8, 2021 - Lucerne, Switzerland (hotel)

    Arrive in Zurich and transfer to your hotel in Lucerne. This beautiful city sits amid snowcapped mountains on the north end of Lake Lucerne. During the included city tour, you will learn the history of the world-famous Lion of Lucerne, a monument spectacularly carved into the cliffside.
    Day 3

    May 9, 2021 - Basel, Switzerland (board ship)

    Transfer to Basel after breakfast for your Rhine River Wine Cruise aboard the Uniworld S.S. Antoinette, your home for the next 7 nights.
    Day 4

    May 10, 2021 - Breisach, Germany

    Breisach is your gateway to the Alsatian wine road and your launching point for one of two excursions along the celebrated Route des Vins, which hugs the foothills of the Vosges mountain range. You can visit Kaysersberg and Riquewihr, two of the most picturesque villages in the region, or take a tour of the larger town of Colmar, the capital of Alsatian wines. A special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening.
    Day 5

    May 11, 2021 - Strasbourg, France

    See Strasbourg on foot with an insightful local expert, where this historic town with its cobbled lanes, half-timbered homes, giant stork nests and impossible-to-resist pastry shops will win your heart. Kehl, directly across the river from Strasbourg, will be your ship’s base while you explore the Alsatian capital. Experience its historic core as the locals do, with an exclusive walking tour. If you’re feeling adventurous, take advantage of Uniworld’s bicycles or Nordic walking sticks and explore the banks of the river.
    Day 6

    May 12, 2021 - Mannheim (Speyer), Germany

    Speyer—“spire” in English—is well named, since the four red towers of the Romanesque cathedral dominate the Old Town.
    Day 7

    May 13, 2021 - Rüdesheim - Boppard, Germany

    Experience Germany’s fabled Rhine River in one of two ways—an exclusive tasting of estate-grown Rieslings at Castle Vollrads or take the long way shoreward from the Germania monument with a vineyard hike. This morning, you’ll cruise out of Rüdesheim and into the sublimely beautiful and romantic Upper Middle Rhine Valley.
    Day 8

    May 14, 2021 - Boppard - Koblenz, Germany

    Get to know Koblenz, a historic town with a colorful past and eclectic architecture, and enjoy a visit to the stunningly medieval Marksburg Castle. As you come upon picture-perfect Koblenz, you’ll sail past Deutsches Eck (German Corner) with its historic monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I.
    Day 9

    May 15, 2021 - Cologne, Germany

    History buffs will enjoy an expertly led tour through Cologne’s Old Town, where three medieval gates remain standing, as does the old city hall with its Renaissance façade. Wander through the city’s historical center and take in its charming atmosphere, narrow alleyways flanked by old houses and countless breweries. No matter how you choose to explore Old Town, you’ll also have ample free time to explore on your own. In the evening, a special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.
