Rhine River Cruising

Experience the best of Europe

During its scenic route to the North Sea, the Rhine traverses castle-dotted landscapes and striking vistas, with nearby cities offering up a cultural fusion of medieval and cosmopolitan flair. Few journeys can compete with the romanticism of this historic waterway, and stunning sights like the UNESCO-listed Rhine Gorge testify to this region’s unspoilt splendour.

Each one of our Rhine River cruises commences in the quirky city of Amsterdam. From there, guests will sail in boutique comfort through Germany, either following the waterway’s path to the Black Forest in the West or edging out on to the Main, headed for Nuremberg and beyond. The Roman-founded city of Cologne is one of Germany’s oldest yet most modern destinations; Koblenz is a 2,000-year old gem located on the banks of the Moselle; and places like Miltenberg and Würzburg are filled with historical insights and cultural treasures. The Rhine, quite simply, is a river cruise rite of passage.
