In October, I took a trip with my husband to Europe to sail on a river cruise alongside Switzerland and Germany. I chose Uniworld, a boutique river cruise collection. My cruise, Castles along the Rhine, did not disappoint!
It’s always been my goal to make sure my clients experience the best. So I am purposeful about my scouting trips, and I’m dedicated to finding beautiful and unforgettable locations around the world.
We flew into Zurich, Switzerland. Then, we caught the train in Germany. Finally, we sailed from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands.
While we were in Zurich, we booked a room at the Park Hyatt. The rooms showcased comfortable and cozy seating areas with warm lighting from lamps and modern carpet. The bed and shower area made you feel like you weren’t miles away from the comfort of home. The lounge had plenty of low lighting. It was an inviting and relaxing place filled with colorful art.
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Intercontinental Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam. It was perfect for our vacation. Although it was not in the center of the city in the hustle and bustle of everything, it was still within walking distance to everything.
We loved our Canal view and highly recommend this for anyone’s stay. The service at the hotel was perfect and the Concierge was amazing. All we had to do was ask, and it was taken care of for us. In my opinion, this is a perfect Virtuoso 5* hotel in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful views of the canal.
I only got to see outside of the Anne Frank house. If you want to see the inside of this historic building, never book your trip two weeks before you travel. I was able to see the famous van Gogh portrait and explore the city. I also thoroughly enjoyed my meal at the Blue Pepper in the city of Amsterdam.
