Rhine River Cruises


2024 & 2025 RIVER CRUISES

They say the Rhine is a river for romantics. Yet as Europe's busiest waterway, powering its way from the Swiss Alps to the North Sea, it's also a river of trade, culture and history. Explore the river that remains the beating heart of Europe.

It's easy to think of the Rhine as a purely German river - and many Rhine river cruises concentrate on the German mid-section, letting you explore in gratifying depth. Yet the river's course also takes in Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and the Netherlands. That means your river cruise on the Rhine could take you from Basel's museums to Holland's windmills via the Black Forest and the World Heritage Site splendour of the Rhine Valley.
