Cruise Line: Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection
Ship: The A
Frankfurt, Germany to Amsterdam, Netherlands
Frankfurt, Germany

Your adventure starts after embarkation.

Frankfurt, Germany

INCLUDED: In the "Mainhattan" of Germany—Europe's largest financial center—you can explore the Old Town on foot or on two wheels, stopping at the Kleinmarkthalle to do some shopping for tonight's cooking class or visiting the city's Sunday flea market. U TIME - LIFE OF THE ROTHSCHILDS: The Jewish people have played a key role in Frankfurt's success, most notably the Rothschilds—their incredible rags-to-riches story has all the elements of a Hollywood movie. Learn more at the Jewish Museum and visit the Jewish cemetery and its Wall of Remembrance.

Frankfurt, Germany
Rüdesheim am Rhein, Germany

Included: Cosmopolitan Frankfurt is a city of contrasts, home to bankers and hipsters, avant-garde skyscrapers, and ancient abodes. Included: You can head ashore in Rüdesheim for a scenic hike that offers amazing views of the surrounding countryside. Later, you'll want to be up on deck as we cruise through the fabled Rhine Gorge, lined with fairytale castles and ruined fortresses.

Koblenz, Germany
Bonn, Germany
Cologne, Germany

INCLUDED: Even people who aren't into cathedrals are awed by Cologne Cathedral, a hulking Gothic structure that looms over the city. Your U host will share stories of the site's colorful history and show you the shrine containing relics of the Three Magi.

Cologne, Germany

INCLUDED: Relax onboard, bike along the Rhine, or hop on a motorcoach to Düsseldorf, Germany's most elegant shopping city and a favorite of fashionistas. U TIME - MINE BIKING: Our Iron Age bike tour offers an intriguing perspective on Germany's heavy industry heritage (yes, really), with a stop at the Zollverein coal mine industrial complex. Considered an architectural and technical masterpiece, this UNESCO site now serves as a dynamic center for German arts and culture. NIGHT OUT: Make a Gothic evening of it in Cologne's charming Old Town, visiting local pubs and tasting Kölsch—a beer found only in Cologne.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

INCLUDED: You can't visit the "Venice of the North" and not do a canal cruise. We won't let you! Seeing the city from its iconic waterways is simply a must. Afterwards, the day is yours to relax or perhaps check out Amsterdam's amazing art. U TIME - A SECRET PLACE: For anyone who has ever read Anne Frank's famous diary, an opportunity to climb up to the "Secret Annex"—the attic rooms where her family once hid from the Nazis—is a profoundly moving experience. U TIME - SMELL THE FLOWERS: With its acres of tulips in eye-popping colors, Keukenhof Gardens is a floral extravaganza that definitely lives up to the hype (open April and May only). U TIME - A MIXOLOGISTS DREAM: Embark on a mixology odyssey in the heart of Amsterdam at the House of Bols, "the world's largest cocktail experience". The operative word here is cocktail—need we say more? U TIME - SAY CHEESE: This delicious crash course on Dutch cheese takes place in a wonderfully atmospheric tasting room inspired by Holland's Golden Age.

Haarlem, Netherlands
Amsterdam, Netherlands

INCLUDED: The quintessentially Dutch city of Haarlem may be the most bon vivant city of the North, with a hip and trendy vibe and fabulous shopping. Get a taste of the best of Haarlem today—its culture as well as its unique flavors—at the lively downtown market. U TIME - CHURCH OF BEER: Visit a sinfully good brewery housed in a former church in the center of Haarlem, where you can dine on delicious pub grub and try three kinds of beer. U TIME - FEEL THE RUSH: Adrenaline junkies can have a go at sea kayaking or test drive the latest extreme sport craze—blokarting on the beach. These custom-built karts are equipped with sails and can reach speeds of 60 miles per hour. Not for the faint of heart! U TIME - RED LIGHT SPECIAL: What do you get when you pair the world's oldest profession with Amsterdam's oldest neighborhood? The notorious Red Light District. You could visit on your own, of course, but it's much more fun with a local expert to show you around.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

INCLUDED: Where to find the hottest nightlife in Europe? Look no further than Amsterdam, with its anything goes attitude, vibrant bar and club scene, and legendary coffeehouses. Your dialed-in U host will be on hand to steer you in the right direction.
