Scandinavian Impressions
MS Europa 2 Voyage 1416 - June 19-23, 2014 - Kiel-Hamburg

Travel on your short cruise from Kiel, the gateway to Scandinavia, to Hamburg. Unmissable and endearing Scandinavian cities await you, including the royal city of Copenhagen with its landmark, the Little Mermaid, the bustling Nyhavn district and Tivoli Gardens. On the following day, call at Gothenburg with its nostalgic trams. Cruise along Kiel Canal, one of the most travelled artificial sea lanes in the world, and enjoy docking at the port of Hamburg in an evening sea of lights to round off your cruise.

The highlights of this cruise:

  • Colourful houses and life: Copenhagen’s Nyhavn district*.
  • Ride past the Royal Danish Theatre and Tivoli on a bicycle tour* through Denmark’s capital city.
  • Gothenburg from a new perspective: kayak tour* around the old city centre.
  • The most travelled artificial sea lane in the world – Kiel Canal.

* These arrangements are not covered by the cruise price. The on-shore activities listed are in the planning stage. Subject to changes.

Date Destination
Kiel/Germany, departure 19.00 hrs 

Kiel is the “gateway to Scandinavia”. From this city, set sail with the EUROPA 2 – on the fjord – for Copenhagen, a city which combines city flair and a relaxed atmosphere.

Copenhagen/Denmark, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs 

Enjoy an atmospheric break with a wide range of impressions. Take a city tour* and meet the Little Mermaid and visit Amalienborg Castle, the residence of the royal family. You can tell whether the queen is at home or not by the flag. Afterwards, stroll through the bustling district of Nyhavn and the old town, where the half-timbered houses and cobbled streets lend a distinctive air. Copenhagen is suited to more than just pedestrians: nowhere else in Europe is there a higher volume of cyclists. The outstanding cycle path network offers the best conditions for a cycling tour* past the tourist highlights, such as the Royal Danish Theatre and Tivoli Gardens amusement park and pleasure gardens. Discover royal Copenhagen* with two of the most beautiful castles in Denmark and interesting insights into the monarchy: Rosenborg Castle presents the private collections of Danish kings, ranging from paintings to sculptures, and Christiansborg Castle was the royal residence until 1794.

Gothenburg/Sweden, 7.00 – 17.00 hrs 

On the following day, travel to Gothenburg. Just like in Copenhagen, this city has tightly packed sights and numerous shops. In the city centre, Goetaplatsen square houses the city’s landmark, the Poseidon fountain. Avenyn Boulevard features shops and street cafes and in Haga, the oldest district dating back to the 18th century, antique shops and fashion boutiques line the streets. Experience the true “Gothenburg feeling” on a historical tram tour* in a tram from 1928 – besides Norrkoeping, Gothenburg is the only Swedish city to use trams as means of public transportation. The country house Tjoloeholm was constructed in the English Tudor style between 1898 and 1904 – with lots of attention to detail and the latest technology of the time, such as Sweden’s oldest vacuum cleaner which weighs several tonnes. Alternatively, explore Gothenburg from the water on a kayak tour*. Enjoy the sea breeze as fishermen’s houses and colourful cottages line the banks of the Eskils canal.

Day passage along the Kiel Canal, 10.00 – 20.00 hrs 

Cross the Kiel Canal on the third day of your short trip: it is almost 100 kilometres long and is the most-travelled artificial sea lane in the world. Originally constructed for military purposes, today the Kiel Canal supports the trade of goods between coastal states on the Baltic Sea and their trading partners around the world. Let the northern German landscape drift by and take advantage of the range of opportunities on board, ranging from the latest methods of active fitness training to dancing in the atmospheric Sansibar.

Hamburg/Germany, arrival 1.00 hrs 

In the night-time sea of lights of the port, the EUROPA 2 will dock in Hamburg – the shimmering conclusion to your cruise.
