Tune in to Getaway over the next three weeks as David Reyne joins Scenic on a luxury Europe river cruise along the romantic Rhine and Moselle rivers. The Nine Network will be screening three full half hour episodes on Saturday 25 July, 1 and 8 August.
Join David as he explores the historic streets and canals of Amsterdam, the starting point of this 15 day cruise on board Scenic Opal. Watch as he uncovers the five-star luxury of his Scenic Space-Ship including a tour of his expansive Royal Panorama Suite with Scenic Sun Lounge, and dinner at Portobellos. As the cruise continues along the Rhine, David visits Belgium and its charming World Heritage-listed town of Bruges where he discovers one of its local delicacies – chocolate; the pretty Dutch town of Veere which he explores by e-bike; and the cities of Nijmegen and Maastricht.
The following week David ventures through the rolling vineyards and picture book castles of Germany, stopping in the city of Duisburg for an industrial coal mine excursion and picturesque Cochem, situated on the banks of the Moselle. Boarding a cable car in Koblenz to journey over the Rhine River, David is wowed by the impressive Ehrenbreitstein Fortress where he and his fellow travellers enjoy an idyllic Scenic Sundowner.
The last instalment of David’s river cruise sees a visit to the historic university town of Heidelberg; a cable-car ride to the Neiderworld Monument in Rudesheim; and an evening of grandeur in the Baroque Palace of Rastatt, brought to life during a classical music concert. The episode finishes off with a tasty visit to Mittelbergheim in the Alsace wine region and a walk through the Black Forest of Breisach.
