The incredible diversity of Germany awaits your discovery on this cultural jaunt aboard Braemar; which includes hours of daytime scenic cruising along stunning, highly-rated waterways and calls into some of the country’s most beautiful, historic and exciting destinations.

Sailing along the size-restricted Flensburg fjord, you’ll enjoy unspoilt views of the picturesque countryside lining both the German and Danish shores of this pretty waterway, and glide past the pretty Oxen Islands. Once ashore in Flensburg, there's time to sample the local brew at one of Germany’s best-known breweries, or perhaps journey into the delightful Schleswig-Holstein region and visit historic sites such as Gluecksburg Castle. Docking in Travemünde next, you can take a trip to UNESCO-listed Lübeck and admire the outstanding structures from the city’s Hanseatic past before sailing 53-nautical-miles along the calm, tranquil waters of the Kiel Canal – a feat that only smaller ships such as Braemar can manage.

An extended stay in Hamburg allows you plenty of time to explore the city and discover the many highlights, such as the imposing neo-Renaissance style Rathaus, incredible St. Michael’s Church and bustling HafenCity urban quarter – home to busy bars, trendy restaurants and lively plazas – at your leisure. You could even enjoy a glide across the beautiful Alster Lake in the evening on an unforgettable boat trip. A full day of scenic cruising along the enchanting Elbe and Weser Rivers is then followed by a call into beautiful Bremen. With Braemar closer to the heart of the city – rather than an hour away in Bremerhaven – you’ll find a multitude of attractions just a short distance from the ship. Visit the UNESCO-listed market square to see the impressive 15th century Town Hall and an abundance of gothic-style structures; then head to the modern Überseestadt district to catch a show at the theatre and grab a bite in one of many stylish cafés and restaurants.

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.

Please note, three for two and tips covered offers are not combinable with Anchor fares.

My cabin was under the show lounge stage; I could not only hear the music but also the taps of the tap dancing! Before the cruise I did ask the person I booked with whether the cabin would be noisy - they said they had never had any complaints. I mentioned the problem to reception on the Black Watch at both the start and end of the cruise.
