Sit back, relax and enjoy the casual-yet-stylish atmosphere on board your A-ROSA ship.

Stroll among the 200 stalls, gathered around the city's iconic Baroque water tower, that make up the colourful Mannheim Christmas Market.

Your Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Germany and join your included coach transfer down to the Rhine where your A-ROSA river cruise ship waits, ready to get underway this afternoon.

Day Two

After a day sailing upriver, A-ROSA AQUA arrives in Mannheim, this afternoon. This lively city guards the point where the River Neckar joins the Rhine and has a delightful Christmas market for you to explore. Choose to join an optional excursion to one of Germany's must-see destinations - the beautiful city of Heidelberg

This evening, A-ROSA AQUA will set sail once again, heading upriver to Strasbourg.

Day Three

You'll arrive in Strasbourg not long after breakfast, and will have the day and evening to explore this beautiful city. Marvel at the city's soaring Gothic cathedral, stroll through the winding alleys of the Petite France quarter past lovely half-timbered houses, and browse the festive stalls of its famous Christmas market.

Day Four

At noon, today, you'll arrive in Mainz, the capital of the Rhineland-Palatinate, once the site of a Roman border fort, and the city where Johannes Gutenburg set up his first printing press in the 1450s. An included walking tour will help to bring the city to life, and you'll also have time to explore the 100-or-so stalls of the city's Christmas market, before re-boarding your A-ROSA ship for the overnight cruise back to Cologne.

Day Five

Say goodbye to all your newfound friends, this morning, as you join your included coach transfer and head back to the airport to check in for your flight home.

On fine days you'll find A-ROSA chefs on the top-deck, masterfully barbecuing, so you can enjoy a sumptuous lunch-with-a-view.
