<strong>Amsterdam by canal</strong>
Amsterdam is world famous for its four rings of canals round the oldest part of the city, its 1281 bridges and hundreds of 17th century houses lining the boat filled waterways.
The Plantin-Moretus Museum in <strong>Antwerp, Belgium</strong>, stems from the most important printer-publisher in the second half of the sixteenth century. A Guttenberg Bible, the oldest printing presses in the world, and well preserved record of sixteenth century domestic and commercial life make this museum with its thirty-four rooms well worth a visit. One of the most beautiful printed books preceding 1501 (incunables or cradle books) is without doubt the 36-lined Gutenberg Bible, made with the letter material of the book printing inventor. Post-incunables (books from between 1501 – 1540) are also amply represented.
<strong>Brussels</strong> is known as the capital of Europe because it has become synonymous with the project to unite the continent. Shopping around the Grand’ Place will be some of the best of the entire trip. Fashionable shops with good prices. The ornate Baroque guild houses with their burnished facades were completed in 1695. The end result of Louis XIV’s folly is Europe’s most sumptuous market square.
<strong>Luxembourg</strong> has always occupied a prime position on the map of international politics. From 1443 until 1839 it suffered no fewer than six foreign occupations, transforming Luxembourg into one of the most important fortifications in the world. Therefore, the scenery of both the country and city of Luxembourg is rich which historical castles, churches, bridges and fortresses.
<strong>Thun</strong> and <strong>Interlaken</strong>, two beautiful gateways to the Alps, sit on opposite ends of Thun lake. Thun features an unspoiled old town with fine buildings, attractive squares, and “double-decker” shops plus a world-famous castle and the Schadau Park. The mountains are so close you can almost touch them.
<strong>The Castle of Chillon</strong> sits on a solid rock island jutting out into lake Geneve. It was here that Lord Byron wrote his famous romantic poem “The Prisoner of Chillon.” The original surrounding wall of the castle was built before the 11th century. Inside the walls are three courtyards surrounded by the moat bridge entrance (originally a drawbridge), military quarters, cannon rooms, long loopholes for archers, dungeons and underground vaults. Its history is rich and well preserved.
<strong>Montreux</strong> has long been considered the diamond of the Swiss Riviera. You will find palm trees, balm weather, and flowering camellias alongside Lake Geneva. Experience a spectacular view of Lake Geneva by riding on the cable railway to Caux and the Rochers de Naye or take a 45 minute boat ride out on the lake and experience the breathtaking view of the Alps that tower above.
<strong>Rothenburg</strong> is the “medieval capital” of Germany. A walk through Rothenburg is just like a time tunnel. Not only stately towers, massive fortifications and patrician houses but also the historical festivals will bring you closer to the spirit of the middle ages. And there is no doubt that there is also a spirit of hospitality in this town.
