Amsterdam to Basel

10 Night River Cruise and Tour





Clarkson's Classical Rhine cruise tour has been designed especially for classical music lovers and features carefully selected music programs both on board and on land. Private concerts in the St. Thomas Church in Strasbourg, at the Dominicus Church in Amsterdam and in Beethoven’s house in Bonn form some of the musical and cultural highlights of the cruise, while famous artists such as the organist Daniel Maurer provide the grand finale of the concert cruise with their incomparable performances. Furthermore, the Dudok Quartet and the Nathan Quartet will provide musical entertainment for you on board. Be sure to check out our music program page for more details.


Onwards we visit the Museo del Violino, located in Cremona, the birthplace of the Amati and Guarneri families, and Stradivarius. The following day we enjoy an opera performance at the historical and iconic La Scala in Milan. Let's get dressed up and enjoy this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience in one of the most beautiful theatres in the world.
