According to this interview, they are going to close down all german locks (Regionen = regions) simultaneously from Monday 9th until Sunday 15th.
If this really happens, it would stall ALL cruises but the Elbe river.

Just received email that we have to meet at Nuremberg train station and be directed to Bamberg instead of meeting ship in Nuremberg. Ship can't make it to Nuremberg. This is for the Amadolce. My question is will they be skipping Nuremberg? We are there now having come in a day early. Knowing this answer will affect our sightseeing of Nuremberg.Well, usually the ship will stay in Bamberg one day longer (as the whole itinerary has to be timed), and you are going to be transferred by bus to Nuremberg - takes 45 minutes on the motorway.
We loved the Smokey Beer in Bamberg we wouldn't mind being stuck there for a couple of days!!!After my in-laws' first trip to Bamberg, my FIL came home and asked my husband to brew him a batch of rauchbier so he made some. I'm not a fan, but my FIL and husband did manage to drink both of the kegs he brewed
I can't stand the smoked beer. However, there are around 300 other breweries here in northern bavariaMy husband (the homebrewer) chose our itinerary to get the best beer experience. It's pretty much the entire reason he wants to do a river cruise in Germany. The beers his dad has brought him back over the years piqued his interest for sure! (I lived in Belgium many years ago and prefer a saison but I will certainly be trying as many different beers as we come across) Beer is also the reason we booked a cabin with a teeny fridge. And I just ordered the book Prost about the history of German beer. Hopefully I'll be well-prepared
Great sense of humor and a GREAT attitude!....stay safe and enjoyThanks... I am a "make lemonade" type of traveler - so looks for the positive when ever possible.
Fran - I just knew that in the end the temptation of the sausages would be too much for you. Did you go to Wurstkuchl near the bridge for the bratwursts?Yes - and it was so worth it.
