City Cruises

The art of living - L'Art de Vivre – in France centres mostly on food. And drinks. And that is why we have invited a special tour guide on board: the sommelier Verena Herzog. The wine academic is well versed in the beautiful things in life and introduces you to the culinary variety of the region: from the famous wines to aromatic herbs. All of that and more thrives on the banks of the Rhône. And even if our chefs select fresh ingredients for you and treat you to a spectacular meal in the evening - a visit to the market should not be missed. Breath in, feel and – most importantly – taste! Every market stand praises its products and will proudly serve you some samplers. A tasting at local wineries is a real must for wine connoisseurs. And when one culinary revelation follows the next during dinner on deck, one suddenly realizes that the French are right. While enjoying good food and wine with nice people, forgetting the time, talking, drinking, laughing you will realize: Yes, this is the art of living. Or maybe even the meaning of life? Santé.

INCLUDED SERVICES ON THIS ROUTE

  • 3 gourmet dinners, prepared by our guest chefs Daniel Stütz (Hotel Paradies, Ftan), Dirk Schröer (Burg Schwarzenstein, Rheingau) and pastry chef Oliver Edelmann; one dinner will be accompanied by master sommelier Hendrik Thoma.
  • Wine seminar with sommelier Verena Herzog.
  • Dinner at Paul Bocuse in “L'Abbaye de Collonges”.
  • Champagne course with master sommelier Hendrik Thoma.
