Cruise the Rhine with World Affairs Council of Harrisburg President Joyce Davis

About this trip:

Cruise along the Rhine and Moselle rivers aboard the privately chartered 45-stateroom Royal Crown riverboat from Basel to Amsterdam, exploring the region’s ancient Roman heritage and 20th-century military history. 

Visit classic highlights such as Strasbourg, Mainz, and the fairytale castles of the romantic Rhine; a variety of well-preserved ancient Roman cities; and important sites from World War II, including General Patton’s famous Third Army crossing in Oppenheim and Operation Market Garden at Arnhem. 

On many days, participants are invited to choose the excursion activity that best suits their interests. Some excursions explore ancient Rome’s impact on the region, featuring Augusta Raurica, an ancient Roman archaeological site and open-air museum; the Roman ruins at Trier, and Kalkreise, where the Germanic/Roman Battle of the Teutoburg Forest occurred in A.D. 9. Other excursions delve into World War II history along the Rhine and Moselle, from Arnhem’s Airborne Museum and Nijmegen’s Overloon Museum to the De Oversteek Bridge where American soldiers fought for the liberation of the Netherlands. 

Throughout the cruise, enjoy exclusive educational lectures by expert speakers that deliver meaningful insights about the people and the culture you will encounter. You’ll also enjoy the camaraderie of traveling with a group and feel the thrill of making your own discoveries! An optional 2-night pre-cruise package including stunning Lake Lucerne and an optional three-night post-cruise extension in the Netherlands are also available.

From $5,990 per person plus airfare
