Your adventure starts after embarkation.

Regensburg, Germany
Kelheim, Germany

INCLUDED: Travel through time at warp speed on our "2,000 Years in One Hour" walking or biking tour of Regensburg, and feast on sausages at the world's oldest sausage restaurant, which uses recipes that haven't changed in centuries. U TIME - PADDLE TO BEER: Paddle your way (by canoe or kayak) through the gorgeous landscapes of the Danube Gorge. Later, enjoy a tall cool one at the world's oldest brewery, located in a rather unexpected place—a German monastery. U TIME - REVVED ENGINES: For many gear heads, the epicenter of German engineering is Regensburg's high-tech BMW factory, where you can observe how the Ultimate Driving Machine is made on a fascinating tour.

Nürnberg, Germany

INCLUDED: Discover this historic city in one of three ways—wander on your own, take a guided bike tour, or see the sights on a shuttle bus city tour. U TIME - WAR BIKES: Learn all about Nuremberg's dark past on a guided bike tour of top WWII sites, including the Documentation Center and the site of the famous post-war Nuremberg Trials. U TIME - SPICE IS NICE: Nuremberg was once an important crossroad of the spice trade, a legacy that endures to this day with the city's famous gingerbread and spicy sausages. You'll sample both on this "Made in Nuremberg" culinary tour.

Bamberg, Germany

Included: "The Beer Capital of Franconia" is known for its unusual smoked brew, but that's not the only reason to love Bamberg. Discover its many charms with an Old Town stroll. U Time - Did U say beer?: Little known fact—Germany's Franconian region is home to one-third of the country's breweries, with more than 400 beers just waiting to be tasted by you. You may never think about beer the same way again after this heady experience. U Time - Hang On: The area around Bamberg is a rock climber's paradise. Get your gravity-defying fix on one of over 6,500 (!) established routes. U Time - Paddle Power: Canoe or kayak the Main and Pegnitz Rivers on an outdoor adventure that fully immerses you in Germany's dramatic natural beauty.

Würzburg, Germany

INCLUDED: This region of Germany is famous for its Frankenweins (that's weins, not steins), which you can sample at the local market while shopping for tonight's slow food cooking class onboard. U TIME - BEAUTIFUL ROTHENBURG: Venture along the Romantic Road to what might well be the prettiest town in Germany, Rothenburg, which you can explore however you wish. Don't miss the Medieval Crime Museum—genuinely creepy and well worth a visit, trust us.

Würzburg, Germany

INCLUDED: The old stone bridge over the Main River is a lively scene at night, a mix of street artists, musicians, and locals sipping wine with friends old and new. INCLUDED: We'll stop today in the birthplace of the real-life inspiration for Snow White (who knew?), surely among the fairest towns of all. U TIME - BAROQUE PALACE: Go for Baroque with a visit to the Würzburg Residence, famous for its grand staircase, hall of mirrors, and ginormous ceiling fresco (larger than the Sistine Chapel's).

Miltenberg, Germany

INCLUDED: Choose your own adventure in postcard-perfect Miltenberg—a vineyard hike and castle visit. U TIME - STONE AND GRAPES: Head off to explore a medieval castle and visit an innovative winery, where you'll get to know the estate's young and forward-thinking vintners.

Frankfurt, Germany

INCLUDED: Cosmopolitan Frankfurt is a city of contrasts, home to bankers and hipsters, avant-garde skyscrapers, and ancient abodes. After dark, delve into its dynamic nightlife scene, visiting bars, clubs, and under-the-radar hot spots with your U host.
