Explore castles, cathedrals and old-world charm on this seven-night river cruise through Holland, Germany, France and Switzerland aboard Emerald Waterways' Emerald Star —come with us! Whether you prefer to cycle to Holland's fishing villages and windmills, or cruise the Amsterdam canals fronted by stately Dutch Golden Age mansions, this voyage has something for everyone. Cruise straight through the heart of picture book Germany, where you'll take in the magical medieval history of Cologne, one of Germany's oldest cities. Wind through the deep-ravined riverbanks of the Rhine Gorge, rich with castles and ancient vineyards. Lace up your hiking boots for a tour of Heidelberg Castle's Renaissance ruins and enjoy the refreshing white wines of the Moselle Valley's terraced vineyards. Before journey's end in Switzerland, visit Strasbourg's wine cellars and half-timbered homes in "La Petite France" and hike beneath the Black Forest evergreen canopy of Grimm's Fairy Tales.
