& the Kiel Canal
26th April 2018 • 7 nights • Sails from Newcastle • Balmoral • L1808
From only £799 per person
From seaside charm to medieval architecture,
classic German highlights await you.
There’s the chance to admire the gorgeous
countryside along the size-restricted Kiel
Canal too. In just one week you’ll take the
specially-permitted route into Bremen via
the Weser River; uncover Hanseatic heritage;
embark on rewarding boat tours; and more.
Following a leisurely day at sea, Balmoral will navigate the Weser
River into the city of Bremen – a route only permitted to a few
ships. A full day has been scheduled so you can explore this
fascinating destination until your heart is content. Docking in
the city, as opposed to coastal Bremerhaven, makes it easier to
experience the highlights too. You could opt for a walking tour
to take in the UNESCO-listed Town Hall, Cathedral, Roland and
Town Musicians statues, medieval quarter Schnoor, and more.
You’ll then have time to appreciate the attractive countryside
that surrounds the Kiel Canal – which is only navigable by
smaller ships – before calling into the beach resort of
Warnemünde. Here you’ll dock close to the main attractions,
such as the historic lighthouse, which offers splendid views.
You’ll also be well-placed for a boat trip along the peaceful
River Warnow or for a day among the landmarks of Berlin.
Before you head back to Newcastle, there’ll be time to sample
the delights of the maritime city of Kiel. The top highlights
include the Laboe Naval Memorial and Molfsee Open Air
Museum, or the chance to take a relaxing tour through the
pretty neighbouring Five Lakes District.
