Stepping Back in Time in Miltenberg
Friday, July 17, 2015
Viking River Cruises’ Viking Vidar entered Day 5 of her 15-day Grand European Tour today as we spent the morning cruising the glorious Main River.
A morning of scenic cruising seems to be just what the doctor ordered; most guests arrived down to The Restaurant for breakfast at about the same time I did: 9:00 a.m. River cursing is surprisingly hard work, and it’s nice to see Viking’s itinerary planners recognize this and build in suitable amounts of scenic cruising and free time.
Miltenberg, Germany – our first port of call along the Main River – crept up on us just after lunchtime, and Viking had planned an afternoon filled with multiple ways to enjoy it.
First up was the standard Walking Tour of Miltenberg. This would feature a leisurely walk around town, followed by free time and then a motorcoach transfer to nearby Wertheim, Germany, where Viking Vidar would sail in the meantime. There was also a Gentle Walkers group set up for guests
