AMA Waterways Christmas on the Rhine

Alan and I will be taking a European Christmas riverboat cruise on AMA Waterways in December 2012. Ports include Amsterdam, Netherlands; Cologne, Koblenz, Rudesheim, Worms, Heidleberg and Freiburg in Germany; Strasborg and Colmar, France. Cruise ends in Basel, Switzerland with a land extension in Luzern and Zurich.

You'll see sights like this on a cruise down the Rhine: Rhein Region - Germany

Cologne, Germany...the cathedral is surrounded by a Christmas market during the holiday season. We enjoyed walking through it on our AMA Waterways Christmas markets cruise.

Tips for visiting Zurich, Switzerland. You'll need them on the land portion of your AMA Waterways Christmas cruise. From Traveling Canucks

Our visit to Lucerne, Switzerland was in the wintertime. Perhaps we should go back for a summer river cruise.

Another pinner said: "When you visit Amsterdam, a boat tour of the city's waterways should be one of the top to-dos on your list."

End your Rhine River cruise with a land extension in beautiful Lucerne.

Nothing says BEER like a great German microbrewery in Freiburg, Germany.
