Your European river cruise continues with sightseeing in Passau, the “City of Three Rivers,” and Regensburg, to see the 179 AD entrance to Castra Regina fortress. You’ll dock in Roth for guided sightseeing of the Bavarian town’s timbered houses, or choose an excursion to tour Nuremberg’s historic sites, including Kaiserburg Castle or the Nuremberg Rally Grounds.
