With a focus on centuries of maritime history and heritage, and the beauty of countryside scenes, this discovery of German waterways and cities packs in plenty of sights and highlights. Delve into the maritime industry of Hamburg, with its busy ship yards, naval base and International Maritime Museum, and of Bremen, home to imposing World War II U-boat bunkers and another of Germany’s important ship yards. Be sure to visit the Shipyard Museum during your visit to Flensburg too, to learn about boats and ships which sailed the Baltic Sea in the 18th and 19th centuries were built.[ReadMore]

You’ve ample time in Hamburg to visit attractions such as the Rathaus, towering St Nikolai Church and Miniatur Wunderland, and take a boat tour of Alster Lake too, while you could also seek out sights including the UNESCO-listed Market Square, 15th century town hall and medieval Schnoor district in Bremen. Docking close to the centre of Travemünde puts traditional German shops, markets and a beautiful beach within easy reach, while you’ll also be ideally placed for tours to UNESCO-listed Lübeck, with its rich Hanseatic history and collection of gabled houses, stunning churches and gilded steeples. Sailing the Kiel Canal – only navigable by smaller ships such as Braemar – and the winding River Elbe will bring picturesque, peaceful scenes of beautiful countryside into view, and help you make your own special maritime-based memories.

Braemar is the shortest of Fred. Olsen's four smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships, with dimensions perfect for cruising picturesque, size-restricted rivers and docking in the heart of fascinating towns and cities.

Like the rest of the fleet, Braemar assumes the welcoming feel and intimacy of a country house hotel, and a sense of timeless style and elegance flows through the ship's comfortable bars and lounges, restaurants and spacious accommodation for up to 929 guests.
