Amsterdam to Bergen
A cruise through the German countryside along the Kiel Canal and three overnight stays complement this Baltic and North Sea adventure, one with the perfect mix of scenic fjord cruising, sparkling northern capitals, and less-visited ports. Bridges and canals are everywhere, lined by tranquil bike paths and well-preserved merchant houses. Historic warehouses cluster along waterfronts, repurposed into colorful cafes, shops, homes, and galleries: Copenhagen’s Nyhavn, where Hans Christian Andersen once lived; Bergen’s Bryggen with its medieval wooden boat houses; Heligoland’s heritage-protected lobster huts; and Lubeck’s red brick salt warehouses. Explore sparkling capitals like Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Visit a tiny island with just 1,400 residents and no cars or bicycles. Every day brings new discoveries.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Amsterdam
Amsterdam, the Venice of the North, where more than 1,500 bridges arch gracefully over scenic canals. The stately 17th century homes of Dutch merchants line the canals and museums are everywhere, filled with masterpieces from the Dutch Golden Age. Most of the sightseeing essentials are conveniently collected in the Canal Ring, the central area of the city which is designated as a UNESCO site. Here you’ll find the Anne Frank House, the Royal Palace, the Red Light District, and most of the museums. Mind all the bicycles!
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 2: Harlingen
This historic harbor town has a long history of fishing and shipping, and is filled with old canals, well-preserved merchants’ houses, and 17th century warehouses. Wander through town to the 18th century City Hall and wait for the next hour or half hour when the carillon will chime its pretty melody, or enjoy a pleasurable scavenger hunt as you search for gable stones. These carved and often painted stone tablets were set into the walls of buildings in olden times to help people navigate the streets before the advent of house numbers. Many give you clues to the building’s former purpose.

Day 4: Heligoland, Germany
Heligoland is a German island in the North Sea. It’s known for its spectacular red cliffs, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and diverse seabirds. Take a short ferry ride to Heligoland-Dune and enjoy the tranquil beach. You may even see a seal or two! If you can, make sure to try some lobster while on shore. Heligoland is known for its lobster and was once the center of Germany’s lobster fishing industry
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Hamburg
Bridges arch over tranquil canals – more than you’ll find in Venice. The spires of historic churches and the lovely Rathaus pierce the sky. It’s hard to know where to begin your day. Stroll the Museum Mile for a lesson in history. Venture to Reeperbahn (the Red Light District) to see where the Beatles got their start. Or just shop along the “Mo” (Monckebergstrasse), Hamburg’s version of Fifth Avenue.

Day 6: Kiel Canal
The busiest artificial waterway in the world, busier than the Panama Canal and the Suez Canal combined, this 61-mile-long canal saves a 250-mile detour.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Travemünde (Lubeck)
This seaside resort has been called the German St. Tropez, and was where the beautiful people of the Belle Epoque retreated to restore their creative juices. You’ll find it restorative too, whether you choose to wander the medieval streets of Lubeck, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or try your hand at making marzipan.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 8: Wismar
Walking into the heart of Old Wismar feels like stepping into Germany’s past. The medieval town was a major trading center of the Hanseatic League, an association that blessed it with endless gabled red brick buildings, Gothic churches, and a UNESCO designation. The buildings lining the Marktplatz give you a generous helping of this eye candy. Or spend the day in Berlin, where landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and Checkpoint Charlie lead you through Germany’s past.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 9: Binz
Few people outside of Germany know about this Baltic jewel with its sandy beaches dotted with Stranskorbs (beach baskets) and elegant seaside walkway. The island was the preferred playground of the German elite during the late 1800s and its iconic Belle époch architecture will charm you, but there’s lots more to recommend this secretive seaside resort. Binz is conveniently close to Jasmund National Park with its dramatic white chalk cliffs, as well as a U-boat museum. Climb the spiraling walkway at the Rügen Natural Heritage Center, circling around a soaring birch tree until you reach the viewing tower at the top. Or take the narrow gauge steam train to Jagdschloss Granitz, a dusty pink neo-Gothic hunting lodge/castle built in the 1830s.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 10: Copenhagen
This historic city of palaces, canals, and copper spires casts a sense of enchantment upon all who walk its cobbled streets. Little wonder that Copenhagen’s favorite son, Hans Christian Andersen, was inspired to write some of the world’s most beloved fairy tales here. Stroll the 17th century Nyhavn waterfront where Andersen once lived, complete with colorful row houses and historic tall ships. Enjoy world-class shopping on Strøget, the world's longest pedestrian street. Or find your amusement at world-famous Tivoli Gardens where tree-lined pathways lead to theaters, open air stages, restaurants, cafes, and over 80 attractions.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 11: Aalborg, Denmark
Aalborg is found in the Jutland region of Denmark on the shores of Limfjord. This university city is full of Viking history, 21st century architecture and a quaint medieval center. This is a small port that only allows one cruise ship at a time. Visit Skanse Park with its stunning view of the city and the fjord. Grab a drink at Jomfru Ane Gade, a charming street packed with locals frequenting the bars and restaurants there.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 12: Arendal, Norway
Arendal is a coastal town in Southern Norway known as the “Venice of the North”.  There’s something for everyone in this bustling town and charming archipelago.   Visit one of the many museums, wander through town, or visit the old church, a stone church dating back to the 13th century.  Arendal is filled with rich history waiting to be explored
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 13: Stavanger
Here’s a day for exploration. Your ship will dock in the very city center near the oldest part of town. A short stroll will take you to Stavanger Cathedral, the best preserved medieval cathedral in Norway, the city center and cobblestone pedestrian streets. Just an hour’s boat trip away is the 2,000-foot-high Pulpit Rock with its magnificent views of the lovely Lysefjord.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 14: Flam
A tiny town of only 500 residents, yet people have been traveling here from all over since the end of the 19th century. You’ll understand why when you arrive. Take one of the world’s most breathtaking railroad journeys up the mountain to gasp at the fjord below.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 15: Olden
The pleasant small village of Olden is located at the inner end of the 66-mile long Nordfjord, the sixth longest fjord in Norway.   Long known for tourism and industry, it is now also famous for contemporary design.  With fewer than 500 inhabitants Olden is an ideal destination for people who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, and is the gateway to Jostedal, the largest glacier on the European mainland. If you can, find a bottle of Olden Mineral Water, as close as you will get to a glacier on tap.
