Day 2 – Luxembourg & Grevenmacher
This morning we arrive in Remich and board a motorcoach for the
drive to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, one of the world's smallest
countries. In the capital, Luxembourg City, we set off on a guided
walking tour that introduces us to the local history. It is easy to
see why it has earned designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Influences from the Romans, French, Prussians and Spanish can be
found throughout the city, and structures and buildings spanning
the ages can be spotted at each turn. Our tour presents some of the
most captivating landmarks, attractions and neighborhoods. We visit
beautiful Constitution Square and gaze upon its monuments, then
venture past the Grand Duke's Palace. The ultra-modern business and
banking district, Kirchberg Plateau, houses numerous official EU
buildings, including the EU Parliament Building. It is truly
amazing how different the surroundings become just by venturing to
the railway station district, which is chock-full of 19th-century
buildings and a variety of Art Deco and Art Nouveau structures.
While traveling between neighborhoods, you may even catch a glimpse
of the ancient walls and fortifications surrounding the city.
We return to the ship in time for lunch and set sail for
Grevenmacher near the German-Luxembourg border. Soak in the Moselle
region's scenery from the River Terrace or one of the
well-appointed sun decks, or bask in the amenities of the ship's
interior, such as the massage room. We dock this evening with free
time for you to explore Grevenmacher both before and after dinner
on the ship. Late this evening, once everyone has settled in once
again, we set sail for Piesport. Overnight ship.
