From Prague to Amsterdam

And all of the beers in between

From there, the group will sail on AmaWaterways' brand new AmaLucia into the heart of German beer country, with custom touring to a different brewery each day. The experience ends in Amsterdam, where guests will go beyond the iconic Heineken, Grolsch and Amstel brands to delve deeper into the fascinating world of Dutch beer. This customized river cruise will appeal to beer aficionados and casual quaffers alike.
