We did a brief technical stop in Aschaffenburg to offload guests for a full day excursion which we elected not to do. After we unloaded the all-day people the ship continued down the Rhine. During the morning we had a glass blowing demonstration. The same fellow who has done it before for us. Mostly a salesman but a nice little demo. Later on in the afternoon, we stopped at Miltenberg for a walk around the small town with some free time. Neat little town – had a pretzel and beer. Then reboarded the ship on down the river at Freudenberg. After we were all-aboard we started to sail again for the remainder of the day.
The morning is spent sailing along the beautiful Main River as it winds its way through the Spessart region, home of the actual Snow White. During our sail, you will have the opportunity to learn about the region’s glassblowing traditions during a live demonstration. After lunch, we stop in Miltenberg, known for its half-timbered houses and Germany’s oldest inn. Join our walking tour that concludes with free time for you to explore. Alternately, depart the ship prior to our morning sail for an all-day optional excursion where you will gain a rare glimpse into the noble life, enjoying Privileged Access visits to two very different castles: Schloss Mespelbrunn and Schloss Löwenstein. We sail through the night.
