The River Rhine
RIVER CRUISES ON THE RHINE

Starting its journey in the Swiss Alps, the Rhine flows 766 miles before reaching Rotterdam. Europe’s second largest river, and undoubtedly one of its most important, the Rhine traverses six different countries and shows off Northern Europe at its finest.

This scenic river cruise will take in forested hillsides, craggy cliff edges and impossible vertical villages. A 65-kilometre stretch of the river, the Rhine Gorge, is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its Gothic churches, ruined Medieval castles and idyllic riverside towns.

A river cruise along this gloriously romantic river will serve up delightful quaysides, magnificent locks and wildlife aplenty. All of this is easily matched, if not bettered, by the offerings of the charming towns that you’ll visit along the way.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RHINE

Cologne

The iconic twin spires of Cologne’s famous cathedral will be the first thing you witness as you sail into the port. While this stunning Gothic masterpiece is well worth a visit, there’s so much more to Cologne than this iconic sight. Known for their friendly nature and joi de vivre, the locals will make you feel right at home in this historic city. After a tour of its impressive museums, you can visit the many beer halls of the Altstadt (Old Town) to soak up the atmosphere and hospitality. Chocolate lovers will be right at home in the Schokoladenmuseum, which is a temple to the art of chocolate making. The tour includes a sample of the chocolate fountain and a stop off at the well-stocked gift shop.

Koblenz

This flower-strewn city is situated where the Rhine and Moselle meet, and has a history that dates back to the Romans. It is known as the northern gateway to the Rhine and a stroll around this significant city reveals colourful houses, medieval cathedrals and picturesque plazas. Stolfenze Castle could have been taken straight from a Disney film, such is its picture-perfect perfection. The beauty of the place is further amplified by its preserved rooms, which remain largely as the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV left them in the 19th Century. When you are paying this monument a visit, be sure to explore the glorious surrounding forest land too.

Whether you’re looking to take in the breathtaking scenery, try out the region’s fine wines and beers or simply visit some of Europe’s most charming towns, a river cruise along the Rhine is the perfect choice.
