Trip Summary
2 nights in Amsterdam

Easygoing, liberal Amsterdam is "different." Its citizens, bubbling along happily in their multiracial melting pot, are not so easily poured into the restrictive molds of trade and industry. More important, you can enjoy Amsterdam, its culture, history, and beauty, without stretching the limits of your credit cards. Few skyscrapers mar the clarity of the sky and the populace mostly walks or bikes from place to place. The historic center recalls Amsterdam's Golden Age as the command post of a vast trading network and colonial empire, when wealthy merchants constructed gabled residences along neatly laid-out canals.


2 nights in Dusseldorf

Badly destroyed during the war, Düsseldorf was carefully reconstructed and became the richest economic center in Germany. A relaxing walk along the Rhine or a panoramic view from the Rhine Tower will allow you to admire a "compact" city, where the modern downtown is nearby the Altstadt (Old Town) and the skyscrapers, banks and offices contrasts with the old castles and churches. The open-air pedestrian mall in the Old Town is remarkable by "the longest bar in the world" (260 pubs and taverns).


2 nights in Cologne

The world feels at home in Cologne, where people meet to enjoy a Kölsch. (Kölsch is a language, a philosophy of life and also the popular local beer.) The largest city in the Rhineland, Cologne is rich in antiquity. There is much to see from every period of the city's two millennia history: from the old Roman towers to the modern opera house. Cologne is also a bustling modern city with a decent shot at becoming the fine-art capital of Germany. The city of Cologne also hosts an annual Carnival.


2 nights in Mainz

This city situated on the Rhine has a rich history, started with the Romans coming here 38 B.C. The 2000 years heritage is revealed by both Roman relics and the impressive baroque palaces and churches built by talented architects and sculptors in the 17th century. The religion always occupied an important role in Mainz and a living proof is the cathedral dominating the Markplatz in the Altstadt (old town). The tourists may notice a remarkable, careful reconstruction after the air raids in 1945.


2 nights in Koblenz

This town was founded as a military post about 8 BC and occupied an excellent strategic position, as a triangle bordered by the confluence Rhine-Mosel and a line of strong forts on the surrounding hills - most razed to make room to the modern railway station. The visitor is invited to admire the Alstadt historical buildings (the church of Saint Castor, the municipal picture gallery) and also the palace Residenzschloss and memorial equastrian statue of the emperor Wilhelm I (in the new city).


2 nights in Luxembourg City

Luxembourg's diminutive capital is a delicious contrasting mix of the old and the new. Spend some time exploring the old city with its cobbled streets and imposing walls, and feast your eyes on ornate windows or jewel-like medallions. Come back to modern day as you pass contemporary constructions of glass and steel that house the many banking and business establishments in the capital. Take a lovely walk through Useldange where you can't miss the feudal castle surrounded by rolling plain.


2 nights in Paris

Paris assaults the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelled. Gaze at impressive monuments and savor its gourmet pastiche of cheese, chocolate, wine and seafood. Paris is a city of vast perspectives and intimate streets, of formal gardens and of quiet squares. Paris is relatively small as capitals go, with many of its major sights and museums within walking distance of each other. Stroll down the Champs-Elysees for the chic grand boulevard experience and Rue Cler for a more intimate snapshot of Parisian living.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Jardin des Tuileries, Latin Quater, Avenue des Champs Elysees and so much more!

Package Map Picture
France

France remains one of the worlds most talked-about and written-about destinations. Whether the romance of Paris sweeps you off your feet or you fall gently for the relaxed life of Provence, France is a place for lovers, and will leave you spellbound. Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's great cities, with enough monuments, museums, restaurants, theatres and shows to last a lifetime. The northern provinces of Normandy and Brittany are steeped in history while the Loire Valley is world famous for its châteaux. And there is more to explore.

Germany

Germany's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

Luxembourg

Luxembourg is one of Europe's oldest and smallest independent states. Although famous for its picturesque villages, medieval castles, and natural beauty, Luxembourg is one of the world's most industrialized countries and has the highest standard of living in the EU. The center of Luxembourg is Luxembourg city and there are a number of other beautiful small cities and villages that well worth a visit like Echternach and Vianden. All places can be easily visited in a day from the capital or neighboring Trier.

Netherlands

Visiting the Netherlands should mean more than Amsterdam. The vast flower fields, old windmills and bustling market towns make it an exceedingly pleasant place to explore. The Hague, Delft and Alkmaar are three cities with their own distinctive charms and are less frenetic than the Dutch capital. Also growing in popularity is the town of Maastricht in the far south. Undoubtedly, Amsterdam`s Rijksmuseum, packed with priceless paintings, will appeal to culture vultures. Outside of its beautiful cities, the Wadden Islands of the north are a Mecca for yachting enthusiasts, while the flat landscape makes touring by bike easy.
