Going above and beyond to provide exceptional experiences is something that Scenic strives to do all the time. With Scenic, your river cruise provides the best highlights and most unforgettable opportunities to see Europe in a way that no other river cruise line can. Aptly named Scenic Enrich, these specially crafted and tailored experiences are included in the cost of your cruise, giving you special access to a range of fantastic locations.
The Scenic Enrich programme ensures that any Scenic cruise you embark on includes an Enrich experience ranging from a private tour in a castle to dinner with a local family or wine tasting in a picturesque chateau. There’s something for everyone with Scenic Enrich, and here’s just a few examples.
Avignon Be treated to a gala dinner and performance in the Pope’s Palace.
Vienna A private concert in the grand Palais Liechtenstein.
Portugal Visit the Burmester Cellars for dinner and traditional Fado music.
What makes these experiences special is the sense of true exclusivity and luxury that Scenic crafts into them, from the stunning locations and venues (many of which are often UNESCO or World Heritage-listed), the sumptuous food or wine to the immersive performances and entertainment and the genuine passion and companionship of all involved.
A Medieval Evening at Marksburg Castle
One of Scenic’s most incredible experiences is the evening at Marksburg Castle, where guests enjoy a traditional medieval banquet in its grand hall. Overlooking the Rhine River on a hill near Braubach, Marksburg Castle is one of the region’s most famous and recognisable landmarks. Built in the 12th century, the castle served as a fortress protecting Braubach and the local area and was truly formidable in its many battles, never once falling to invading armies.
Formerly of the Holy Roman Empire and now acting as head office of the German Castle Association, the castle is open for public touring and sightseeing but available exclusively to Scenic guests is the opportunity to enter further into the great hall for a grand medieval feast. Enjoy sumptuous local specialties and flowing red wine while performers entertain you with traditional acts including minstrels, court jesters, players and bards.
Scenic Rouge in Lyon
Scenic Rouge is one of the newest Scenic Rich encounters and invites Scenic guests to a spectacular French extravaganza. Guests who choose this enriching experience can enjoy an exclusive gala packed full of dazzling performances including the acclaimed French Can Can. The special event takes place underneath a decked out big-top onshore in Lyon. A must for anyone sailing the south of Frane on a river cruise with Scenic.
