21/05/2023 Eberswalde to Szczecin

The Niederfinow boat lift

Your ship departs early this morning.

En route to Schwedt you’ll pass a marvel of 20th-century engineering – the Niederfinow boat lift. Built between 1927 and 1934 it's the oldest boat lift in Germany.

Pause after breakfast in Hohensaaten from where you can join an optional excursion to the ruins of Chorin Monastery.

After returning to your ship in Schwedt you’ll continue cruising to Szczecin, arriving early this evening. Originally the German city of Stettin, this town was effectively the 'port of Berlin' and so suffered heavy Allied bombing during World War Two. Now it’s a Polish city and has since been rebuilt to recapture some of its original style and appeal.

Moor overnight.

Szczecin Poland Europe

22/05/2023 Szczecin to Swinemünde


This morning, enjoy an included tour of this restored city which has been rebuilt with wide tree-lined avenues and parks, based partly on Haussmann’s 19th-century rebuilding of Paris. Look out for the decorative Ducal Castle, the Cathedral Basilica of St Jacob the Apostle and the terraces of Waly Chrobrego, providing viewpoints alongside the River Oder.

The afternoon is at leisure for exploring independently or relaxing on board ship.

Depart late afternoon for Swinemünde, arriving during dinner and mooring overnight.

After departing Swinemünde you’ll pass the central lifting section of the former Karnin railway bridge across the river. The structures either side were destroyed in 1945, but this section has been preserved as a monument.

This small and peaceful island in the Baltic Sea provides protected habitat for many bird species and opportunities for visitors to enjoy hiking, biking and horseriding. There are just four villages here, the largest being Vitte where fishing boats once unloaded their catch and the ferries now unload visitors.

Stroll through the village or go exploring further afield on an optional tour in a horse and carriage.

The harbour front is a mix of original warehouses and lively bars and restaurants.

Your ship remains moored in Stralsund overnight.
