Located on the west coast of Sweden, Gothenburg is a compact and accessible city, with wide streets and canals. Originally influenced by the Dutch, the city was constructed with a network of canals, similar to those in Amsterdam, and trams are a major mode of transport for locals. The world-renowned Trädgårdsföreningen, Garden Society of Gothenburg, features 19th century pristine lawns, flower beds and woodlands, and is one of Europe’s best-kept parks.

The Danish crown jewels are housed at Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by beautiful gardens. The diminutive Little Mermaid Statue, based on Hans Chrisitan Andersen’s 1836 story, sits on the shoreline looking for her prince; while the Nyhavn District reveals canals lined with historic wooden ships and brightly coloured townhouses.

Keil Canal Transit

Germany

Arrival - Early Morning  ~  Departure - Late Afternoon

Connecting the North Sea at the mouth of the Elbe River to the Baltic Sea at Holtenau, the Kiel Canal is one of the world’s most important shipping routes. Slicing a man-made path through the German countryside, on average this 61-mile long marvel of engineering allows vessels to avoid 250 nautical miles of sea sailing. Sailing slowly along the canal presents an opportunity to take in lush green countryside and a collection of interesting villages and towns flanking the still waters.
