Cruise Description

4 Night Cruise sailing from Strasbourg roundtrip aboard Monet.

DAY 1 STRASBOURG
Boarding between 6.00 and 8.00pm, rue du Havre in the river basin in Strasbourg. Time to settle comfortably in your cabins before meeting the crew during a welcome drink (new wine). Dinner on board, then dancing will be organised in the lounge in typical Alsatian style.

DAY 2 STRASBOURG - ALT BREISACH
Breakfast on board before leaving by coach to the city centre. Follow your escort to tour Strasbourg (optional river boat trip on the Ill river subject to availability). Back to the ship and sail up the Rhine towards Basel, through the 3 biggest locks. Lunch on board before spending the afternoon cruising on to reach Alt Breisach, capital of the Bade region. Arrival late afternoon. Dinner and dance on board.

DAY 3 ALT BREISACH - MUNSTER - RIQUEWIHR - RIBEAUVILLE
Breakfast on board before leaving by coach to Eguisheim, a major wine-producing village set in the heart of one of the most attractive vineyards in Alsace. The village itself dates back to medieval times with its narrow winding streets. Then return to the coach and head on to Munster, a town which lies on the sunny slopes of the Vosges mountains and renowned for its Munster cheeses. After visiting the town and enjoying some free time, the coach continues on to a typical cheese making farm for lunch. The afternoon will be spent driving along the famous alsatian wine trail, passing Kaysersberg, Riquewihr, a real open-air museum and on to Ribeauvillé, city of pipers, to call in at a wine cellar and taste some of the local vintages. Return to the ship for dinner and savour a hearty “choucroute” (sauerkraut). The evening will continue on an alsatian theme with a folk evening and dancing.

DAY 4 ALT BREISACH - STRASBOURG
Breakfast on board before leaving by coach to Colmar. Follow your escort to explore the town, whose city centre is remarkably unspoiled with its Tanners’ area and “Petite Venise” quarter on the banks of the Lauch. Then on towards Kientzheim. Lunch in a local restaurant. The afternoon will be devoted to visiting the other section of the wine trail which continues on to Obernai. Return to the ship for dinner and a gala evening. The ship cruises on overnight.

DAY 5 STRASBOURG
After breakfast, disembark in Strasbourg. End of our journey.
