Liverpool was the European capital of Culture in 2008 as is also the birthplace of Beatles. You may like to walk through the Mathew Street to the Cavern Club, following in the footsteps of the Beatles.

Situated in the most north-easterly tip of Ireland and first built by Richard de Burgh, Earl of Ulster in the 13th century, the ruins of the castle are a huge tourist attraction.

The castle is surrounded by terrifyingly steep drops at either side; these would have been essential features to the Vikings and early Christians, who were drawn to this magnificent place where an early Irish ring-fort once stood. It is situated on a 100 foot high basalt stack with a sea cave underneath. The earliest features of the castle, the two large drum towers, about nine metres in diameter, can still be seen on the eastern side.

Ullapool 05/17/2024

Ullapool enjoys one of the most remote settings in the United Kingdom on the pristine shores of Loch Broom.

Kirkwall (Orkney Islands)

Kirkwall (Orkney Islands) 05/18/2024

The history of the Scottish Orkney Islands dates back millennia. Neolithic remains, including the ancient site of Brodgar, predate Stonehenge and the Pyramids. The 13th-century Norse Orkneyinga Saga told of Vikings who ruled here. Later, the earls took over, and the French Renaissance palace that remains is a legacy to their grandeur. Another castle, Balfour, stands regally in a stark landscape. While the northern Europeans greatly influenced this hauntingly beautiful archipelago, consider the Italian Chapel, built by the hands of Italian prisoners during wartime.,

Edinburgh (Newhaven)

Edinburgh (Newhaven) 05/19/2024

Edinburgh has been Scotland's capital since the 15th century, despite the fact that the Union of the Crowns moved it to London in 1603. There is no capital quite like Edinburgh, with its gorgeous setting on green rocky hillocks and splendid views of the sea. Edinburgh Castle, home of the Scottish Crown Jewels and countless medieval treasures, overlooks the city from Castle Rock; and the Royal Mile unfurls Edinburgh's architectural gems in all their finery, from the Canongate to St. Giles' Cathedral to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Scottish residence of British royalty.,

This charming port is the gateway to a breathtaking region that provides a fascinating glimpse into the days of warring clans, and into the legend of "Nessie", the fabled monster of Loch Ness.,

Lerwick, Shetland Island

Lerwick, Shetland Island 05/21/2024

The Shetland Islands may be remote, but history did not overlook them. At the excavation site of Jarlshof, tall, stone roundhouses date to the Iron Age and an ancient Norse longhouse tells of a Viking community. More recent history echoes through the streets of Lerwick, the islands' sleepy capital founded by Dutch fishermen. The main island, Mainland, gets much of its beauty from its diversity. Farmlands and dreamy meadows unfold toward seal-dotted beaches, rocky cliffs take a beating from the surf, and medieval castles overlook valleys and lakes.,

Art Tour with visit of Vigeland Sculpture Park and Opera House in Oslo with Rickshaw transfers – 4 hours
This art tour starts on three wells, a more sustainable way of discovering the city!
Your rickshaw driver will take you to Frogner Park, the famous sculpture park of Oslo. This enormous open space was laid out in the first half of the 20th century by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. Over a period of 30 years, he created his own world of human beings and animals from stone, iron and bronze. There are about 200 statue groups in all, which describe the course of human life from birth to death. The monolith, a 56-foot-high granite block carved with 121 figures stands as the unequivocal centerpiece of this well-planned park.

Aalborg 05/29/2024

Founded by Vikings in the late 900s, historic Ålborg enjoys a picturesque setting. The best-preserved Renaissance architecture in all of Denmark is here, most famously at the Jens Bang's House, built in 1624. Its clean symmetry helped lay the foundation for today's Scandinavian design. Ålborg, the nation's fourth-largest city, was founded as a trading post. The wealth that poured into merchants' accounts helped build many half-timbered mansions that still stand today. Ålborghus Castle, the seat of the modern-day governors of Northern Jutland, is perhaps the finest example.,

Focusing on the area around Stortorget (the town square) and lively Lilla Torget (the little square) Malmö's Old Town is a gorgeous warren of cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses.
Located about 2.5km northwest of the Old Town, buzzing, bayside Västra Hamnen represents the modern face of Malmö. It's a popular spot to stroll, sip coffee and browse boutiques, but mostly people come to marvel at the Öresund bridge and the Turning Torso
After Malmö we continue to Lund, founded by the Danes around 1000 AD and once the seat of the largest archbishopric in Europe, Lund is the second-oldest city in Sweden. It's also one of its loveliest, surrounded by beech trees and glowing with an impressive architectural legacy. Its magnificent, medieval old town is centered on its strikingly beautiful cathedral. Radiating around it is the country's oldest, most prestigious university (c 1666).

Copenhagen Walking tour in the pursuit of Hygge – 4 Hours



Hygge is as Danish as pork roast and it goes far in illuminating the Danish soul. In essence hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life in the company of good people. The warm glow of candlelight is also hygge. Friends and family – well that’s hygge too. 

In the summertime, hygge is spending time in the sun, over a beer at the pier, a picnic in one of the city parks or just hanging out with good friends in one of Copenhagen’s many picturesque and historical back yards.

This 4-hour walking tour will highlight what hygge is all about. The tour starts by exploring the area around the Latin quarters an around the pedestrian street Strøget. 

The Latin Quarter is one of the most entertaining areas of Denmark's capital city, with a young-spirited undertone around the vicinity of Copenhagen University. The Latin Quarter is well known for its hang-out spots, alternative shopping and 17th-century architecture. 

Part of Danish hygge is having coffee with friends, so we will pick up a cup of coffee to go and a cinnamon roll at Sankt Peders Bakery, Copenhagen oldest bakery which was founded in 1652. 

We continue our tour by visiting the church of our Lady. The Copenhagen Cathedral in its present shape is an unpretentious building in Neo-Classicist style designed by the architect C.F. Hansen. It is situated close to the University of Copenhagen. An inside visit to the Round Tower in included. It was built as part of the Trinity Complex, named after the Holy Trinity and designed to accommodate three things: the observatory at the top of the tower, the library on the floor above the Trinity Church and of course the church itself. From its vantage point you will be able to peak into some of Copenhagen’s old, historical and cozy court yards before we head over to the Kings Garden, a popular green spot in the city center.

Copenhagen Jewish tour – 4 Hours


Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark have nevertheless had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history. The sights on your tour includes The Round Tower with its golden Hebrew inscriptions; the statue of the world famous Danish Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr; and the Trinitatis church where the Torah scrolls from the Copenhagen Synagogue were hidden during the Second World War and were thus saved from destruction.

Christianshavn & Dragør tour – 4 Hours



Narrow cobbled streets, Michelin-starred restaurants and cozy cafes along the canal. Just across the bridge Knippels Bro is Christianshavn, officially part of Copenhagen city centre. Christianshavn is a much-desired area for Copenhageners to live. And it is easy to see why. It is central, full of bars and restaurants and has a unique maritime atmosphere. 

Dragør was founded in the 12th century, and it grew quickly as a fishing port. During the medieval period it was an international marketplace for Hanseatic merchants who came each year to buy herring. In the early sixteenth century, King Christian II invited a group of farmers from the Netherlands - at the time, a more agriculturally advanced nation than Denmark - to settle here to produce food for the royal household. You still find many Dutch names on the doors in Dragør. The town center is very idyllic with its characteristic yellow painted houses, thatched straw roofs and cobblestone streets, plus a charming harbor that is still an active fishing port.

Christiansborg Palace is located on the tiny island of Slotsholmen and houses Denmark's Parliament. It is the Prime Minister's residence and where the Queen of Denmark receives visiting royalty and heads of state in its royal reception rooms. In the Marble Hall, see the incredible, colorful tapestries displaying Danish and world history over the past 1,000 year.

Copenhagen Rickshaw tour – 3 Hours


If you want to get out and see the most of Copenhagen effortlessly, a Rickshaw tour is a great choice. Be part of this tour and experience Copenhagen on three wheels as your driver guide will lead you around the city and to its sights in style.
 
The Danish cycle-culture is as old as the bicycle itself. Copenhageners have used bicycles to transport themselves to and from work since the 1880s. Back then, commuting by bike was the fastest, easiest and most environmentally friendly way to move around the city – and it still is. Copenhagen got its first bike lane in 1910 but most parts of the current network of bike lanes have been established within the last 25 years. Today 50% of the Copenhageners choose to commute by bike every day. Most of them do it all year round – rain, hail, snow or sunshine.
During the tour you will see some of the famous landmarks of Copenhagen which include The City Hall, Christiansborg Castle, The Old Stock Exchange, Christianshavn, Our Saviours Church, The Opera,  The Kings Square, Nyhavn, Amalienborg Castle, Kastellet, The little Mermaid,  to name a few. While riding backstreets and crossing bridges, your guide will also show you some of the hidden gems the city of Copenhagen has to offer. Discover hip neighborhood’s, secret gardens, courtyards, and hidden churches. Continuing along the way there is a convenient stop for a coffer break, just like a real Dane,  and you will  pass by Christiania and hear the story about the free state around the big canal on the 'havneringen' route, hitting the Green Bike Lane before returning to the city center.

In 1933 the cisterns stopped functioning as a water reservoir and for many decades these subterranean chambers were forgotten until 2013 when the building became a part of The Frederiksberg Museums.  Today, the old subterranean water reservoir of Soendermarken is home of events and art exhibitions that awaken all senses.

Berlin (Warnemünde) 05/31/2024

After a decades-long postwar rift both between Berlin and the world and within the city itself, Germany's capital has been reunified and undergone a remarkable rebirth as a center of art, culture, and great architecture. It is still riding the wave of its newfound energy, and exploring its streets feels akin to browsing a newly opened museum. Risen from the ashes of war, many of its buildings that once stood for division now embrace unity. Among them, the Reichstag parliament building embodies a new transparency with its glass dome, and the city's Museum Island celebrates self-expression and creativity.,

The Battle of Berlin and the World War II Tour

Berlin Reichstag, Germany

After dreadful years in which the Nazi war machine killed over 10 million Soviet soldiers and over 11 million civilians, the Red Army reached the banks of the Oder River, 50 kilometres east of Berlin. In early April 1945, 1.3 million Soviet Soldiers found a severely weakened Nazi defence, consisting mainly of demoralized and poorly equipped soldiers, old men of the Volkssturm (Home Guard) and young boys of the Hitler Youth. They descended upon Berlin for what Marshall Georgy K. Zukhov called their ”final hour of vengeance.”

The Battle of Berlin and WW II Tour follows the crucial events and details of the battle, including troop movements, the master strategies of leading generals, and the experiences of infantry soldiers and Berlin civilians.

You will make stops at Reichstag, the place of the former Hitler’s bunker, the flak tower in Berlin-Gesundbrunnen and the German Resistance Memorial Center – Bendler Block

Berlin: Hackescher Markt and its courtyards – where tradition meets today’s lifestyle

Berlin Hackescher Markt, Germany

The Hackescher Markt is an extensive old town district which only can be found once in Berlin.

Historically the development of the courtyards is closely connected with the history and the urban development of Berlin. In the 17th century this area was outside the city walls. As at that time it was forbidden to store hay and straw inside the city walls, more and more barns were built. The historical name for the nowadays “Hackescher Markt” was and in some areas still is “Scheunenviertel”. The inflow of Jewish and french immigrants gave the district a cosmopolitan diversity that still exists today. The first synagogue and the jewish cemetery were built here.  


Nowadays the streets around the Hackescher Markt with its eight interlinked courtyards between Rosenthaler Street and Sophia Street are not only a tourist magnet, but still represent the cosmopolitan and modern way of life. Explore on a guided tour the diversity of this place combined with a stroll around the different galleries. 
Berlin Boros Collection

When Christian Boros acquired this Nazi-era bunker in 2003, he gained not only a 3,000-square-meter space for his modern art collection but also a piece of Berlin’s colourful history.

Built in 1942 to protect passengers of nearby Friedrichstrasse Station from aerial bombardment, the concrete structure found a sweeter post war use storing tropical fruit for East Berliners, who dubbed it the “Banana Bunker.” It then had a brief stint as a hardcore techno and fetish club, until city authorities shut it down in 1996.

 

Boros converted the bunker to exhibit his extensive collection featuring artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Damien Hirst, Terence Koh and more. In 2008, following five years of difficult renovations - reinforced concrete walls had to be cut out with diamond-tipped drills and broken up before being removed by hand - Boros and his wife took up residence in the penthouse and opened the bunker’s heavy steel doors to the public.

Bornholm 06/01/2024

Founded around the year 1000 as a fishing community on the Danish island of Bornholm, the village of Rønne has played an important role in the maritime trade of the Baltics. Germans, Swedes, and Soviets variously overtook the island throughout its history. Along Laksegade and Storegade streets, historic cobblestone lanes and the low-timbered, red-roofed houses of merchants exude the Rønne of yesterday. Today, Rønne is home to celebrated and talented artisans who uphold a long tradition of glassblowing and, more famously, of crafting longcase grandfather clocks.,

Gdansk (Gdynia)

Gdansk (Gdynia) 06/02/2024

Gdansk is widely known as the city of glowing amber and Gothic cathedrals. Its luster harkens back to medieval times when it was one of the most prosperous cities in the Hanseatic League, the mercantile powerhouse of the Baltic. The city's rich history is on display in the remarkably restored Old Town, a splendid mix of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles—from the royal residence of Green Gate to the 15th-century Artus Court, a merchant's palace. Traditional Polish pierogies or a glass of Goldwasser, a liqueur created here in the 16th century, round out any visit.,

Gdansk - Window to Freedom - Half Day Tour
In the Footsteps of Solidarity in Gdansk
Half day tour

In the late 1970s the city’s Lenin Shipyard saw the birth of the SOLIDARITY, the first independent trade union in the Eastern Block countries, which made Lech Walesa a household name and began the process of transformation across the entire region. 

We will visit the St Bridget’s Church, a record of the Solidarity period with the tombstone of the murdered priest Jerzy Popieuszko, a collection of crosses from the 1980-88 strikes and a door with bas-reliefs of scenes from Solidarity’s history.

Then will have a photo stop by the Monument to the Shipyard Workers, erected in memory of the workers killed in the riots of 1970 and will continue to the „Roads to freedom” exhibition, a moving tribute to the Solidarity movement. The exhibition is a real highlight. Its vestibule is a replica of primitive shop of the seventies, with not too many products to sell. The key place is the hall where the delegates of the strike committee and the representatives of Polish authorities signed first the post Second War history of Poland agreement between the representatives of the people of Poland and the communist authorities.

Everything is original here, just to mention: the table, chairs, boards with demands, historic ballpoint that Lech Walesa signed the agreement with etc. In one of the halls , the visitors can watch  moving documentary film, too.

A Pulsating Harbour - Gdansk/Gdynia/Sopot - Full Day Tour
A Pulsating Harbour - Tri-City Complex: Gdanks/Gdynia/Sopot
Gdansk, as fascinating and special city as one could hope to find anywhere, was once known as Danzig - name etched deep in European history. It is a major harbour, first German, then Hanseatic, Polish, Prussian, Free City and finally Polish. Desired by many, the city was often fought over. Indeed, it was the nearby Westerplatte that the first shots of history’s greatest war were fired in 1939. Later in the late 1970s the city’s Lenin Shipyard saw the birth of the Solidarity Trade Union, which made Lech Walesa a household name and began the process of transformation across the entire region. Gdansk has not forgotten its history. The lovingly restored buildings of the Old Town and waterfront provide picturesque and interesting surroundings, in which one may take a stroll, dine or shop for the city’s famous amber jewelry. In turn, the impressive Monument to Murdered Shipyard Workers gives the visitor a pause for thought about all that has happened since the 1970s.But further surprises await, for Gdansk is just the largest component of the Tri-City of Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. North-south development along the coast left beautiful and unspoiled woods and forests on hills just inland, and allows the visitor to travel smoothly from place to place by road or by local railway. Required stops for all include Gdynia, the lively naval, fishing and commercial port with its historical ships, beaches and the Oceanographic Museum; Sopot, an elegant beach resort of villas and hotels famous for its musical and cultural festivals; and Gdansk-Oliwa, a suburb boasting beautiful parks and a cathedral, whose world-famous organ Poland-largest entertains and entrances all who hear it. Lively, attractive, cultured, historical: the Gdansk area is as varied and eternally fascinating as the sea, which brought its fame and fortune.

Stockholm Drottingholm Castle tour - 4 Hours


Drottningholm Palace
is on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. It is the best-preserved royal castle built in Sweden during the 1600’s and it is representative of all European architecture that was to follow.

The castle was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder and was clearly inspired by French architecture and since its construction many royals have left their mark on the palace. Hedvig Eleonora, Lovisa Ulrika and Gustav III left powerful examples of their style, especially in the decor of the reception rooms. Hedvig Eleonora’s state bedchamber was at the heart of their reception rooms in the 1600’s and was created by the country's foremost artists and craftsmen.
There is also a series of rooms that were decorated for Gustav III during the 1700’s which includes the Chinese saloon, a very chic trend at that time.

In 1991 Drottningholm Castle was included on UNESCO's World Heritage list of sites of outstanding universal value to humanity. The Royal family moved into the Drottningholm Palace in 1981 and still today the castle remains the primary residence of the King and Queen. The rooms in the castle's southern section are reserved for the royal couple.

Stockholm City tour – 5 Hours

Sweden’s magnificent capital Stockholm is a city renowned for its characteristic structure, built on 14 islands magnificently bathed by the waters of lake Mälaren. Your tour will introduce you to the most characteristic locations and the most architecturally significant buildings, the first of which is the imposing City Hall, the city's political centre and the location for the annual celebrations that follow the presentation of the Nobel Prizes.

Having admired its imposing exterior that is surrounded by water and topped with three golden crowns, the symbol of the kingdom of Sweden, you will visit the sumptuous Golden Hall whose walls are entirely covered with precious golden mosaics composed of over 19 million tiles.
 
Continuing on your itinerary takes you towards the green island of Djurgården with its numerous historic buildings, monuments, museums, galleries, an exciting theme park and a magnificent open-air museum.

Uppsala and Sigtuna tour - 6 Hours


Uppsala is located 72 kilometres north of Stockholm and as early as the 6th century it was a political and religious centre. 
It was from here that the old pagan kings ruled. Legend has it that there was a splendid temple here that was decorated with gold.
The large historical Uppsala Cathedral was consecrated in 1435. Several famous scientists and kings have their chapels here. There is a fine museum in the north tower full of ecclesiastical textiles and gold and silver objects. In one of the cathedral's chapels lie the holy relics of Sweden's patron saint, St. Erik, in a gold Casket.
Uppsala University is the oldest University in Scandinavia. In the 17th and 18th centuries the university became a centre of research, mainly in the field of natural history. Many are the geniuses that have spread Uppsala's reputation worldwide and to date six Uppsala scientists have received the Nobel prize. The Gustavianum museum is housed in Uppsala University's oldest preserved building. Exhibited at the museum are the Augsburg Art Cabinet, discoveries from the Viking period, the history of the University of Uppsala, mummies and much more.
Sigtuna is a town north of Stockholm that sits beside Lake Mälaren, in the lush landscape of Uppland. The area prospered during the Viking Age, leaving a heritage of rune stones, graves and monuments, which to this day still stand in and around the town. Sigtuna is said to be home to the most rune stones in the world. They were erected during the Viking era to commemorate deceased men.
Sigtuna is Swedens first town and was founded in AD 980, as Christianity arrived, uniting Sweden as a single kingdom. With a royal mint and a bishop, Sigtuna was effectively the capital of Sweden until power shifted towards Stockholm and Uppsala in the 13th century. Three historic church ruins, St. Olof, St. Lars and St. Per, from the 12th and 13th century can be found in the medieval centre of Sigtuna. Here, you will also find the brick Church of Maria, which was built in 1247 as a Dominican monastery.

The 18th century Town Hall can be found on Sweden's oldest street, Stora Gatan (over a thousand years old). It is allegedly the smallest town hall in Scandinavia and is nowadays used as a museum.

Stockholm Jewish tour – 5 Hours



The northern city of Stockholm is one of the most stunning capitals in the world. It is situated on 14 islands and is surrounded by water so clean that you can swim and fish right in the heart of the city.  

Sweden’s Jewish community holds a very unique place in the continental European Diaspora. During the mid-20th century, Sweden was one of the only European countries to actually witness a growth in their Jewish population. During the Second World War there was no systematic persecution by the neutral Swedish government, and, in fact, the country gave asylum to thousands of Jewish refugees from Denmark and Norway. The community has continued to exist relatively undisturbed over the generations. 

Today, the Swedish Jewish community is the largest in Scandinavia and is primarily composed of descendants of pre-war refugees and Shoah survivors who arrived after the war. Most Swedish Jews live in the capital Stockholm. It is a unified community and all three synagogues in the city belong to the same organization. 

Today’s first stop is at the impressive panoramic viewpoint Fjallgatan. Here you have the opportunity to take some photographs while your guide points out the main sights of the city before your scenic drive towards Gamla Stan (Old Town). 

Here you will get an insight into the long lasting German influence and the many attacks of the Danes during the Middle Ages. Due to the Swedish neutrality nothing has been destroyed here in the last 400 years. You will experience the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old Town, passing the Royal Palace and on to Tyska Brunnsplan square, named after the German community that once occupied this area. Here stands the building which was Stockholm's first synagogue, founded in 1790. 

Continue towards the Conservative Synagogue, otherwise known as the Great Synagogue. Inaugurated in 1870, it still has an active congregation with more than one thousand members. The Great Synagogue is built in an Assyrian style whose organ resembles an open Torah scroll.

Leaving the Synagogue you pass by the beautiful Jewish cemetery whilst taking in the main sights and highlights of the city.

Stockholm Drottingholm Castle tour - 4 Hours


Drottningholm Palace
is on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. It is the best-preserved royal castle built in Sweden during the 1600’s and it is representative of all European architecture that was to follow.

The castle was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder and was clearly inspired by French architecture and since its construction many royals have left their mark on the palace. Hedvig Eleonora, Lovisa Ulrika and Gustav III left powerful examples of their style, especially in the decor of the reception rooms. Hedvig Eleonora’s state bedchamber was at the heart of their reception rooms in the 1600’s and was created by the country's foremost artists and craftsmen.
There is also a series of rooms that were decorated for Gustav III during the 1700’s which includes the Chinese saloon, a very chic trend at that time.

In 1991 Drottningholm Castle was included on UNESCO's World Heritage list of sites of outstanding universal value to humanity. The Royal family moved into the Drottningholm Palace in 1981 and still today the castle remains the primary residence of the King and Queen. The rooms in the castle's southern section are reserved for the royal couple.

All fares and offers are for new bookings only, as of May 1, 2014, are subject to availability, may not be combinable with other offers except Viking Explorer Society Travel Credit and Referral Rewards Credit, are capacity-controlled and may be withdrawn at any time without prior notice.

Cruise fares listed are cruise only in U.S. dollars, per person, based on double occupancy. Cruise fares listed are valid for U.S. and Canadian residents only. Cruise ship fuel surcharge may apply. 2-for-1 fares are based upon published full brochure fares; cruise fares do not include pre-paid charges, optional facilities and service fees, and personal charges, as defined in the terms and conditions of the Passenger Ticket Contract. Full brochure fares may not have resulted in actual sales in all stateroom categories and may not have been in effect during the last 90 days. Promotional fares may remain in effect after the expiration date. Viking reserves the right to correct errors or omissions and to change any and all fares, fees and surcharges at any time. Please call for the most up-to-date prices, as pricing and availability may change at any time. The cruise ship fuel surcharge is additional revenue to Viking River Cruises, as are any additional charges relating to currency fluctuation other than for fully paid cruise fares and full fares, which fluctuations are beyond our control. Additional terms and conditions may apply. Complete terms and conditions may be found in the Passenger Ticket Contract.

All fares are quoted in US Dollars.
