Luxury Rhine Cruises


Cascading from the Swiss Alps and coursing for 760 miles, the Rhine is one of Europe’s best-known waterways, home to fairytale castles, Christmas markets and magnificent cathedrals. The river is a window into life in both Germany and the Netherlands.

Where to discover

Hidden among storybook villages, hillside castles and lush vineyards, the Rhine bends and bows to remarkable beauty and culture. From the German Black Forest of fairy tales to the North Sea, the river tiptoes between captivating cities and towns including Cologne, Koblenz, Rudesheim, Mainz and Heidelberg.

Venture into these Dutch and Swiss regions, soaking up the spellbinding delights of each destination. The Black Forest of Germany is the setting for countless Grimm Brothers’ fairytales, and you can certainly see why when you explore the depths. With half-timbered houses, cuckoo clocks and evergreen forests characterising the region, a river cruise reveals this unique character in all of its glory.

Further along the river, Koblenz is one of Germany’s oldest and most beautiful towns and the backdrop to the Rhine and Moselle confluence. With four mountain ranges, countless vineyards and plenty of forests to explore, the region has been recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty by UNESCO and awarded World Heritage status. Why not discover it for yourself on-board a luxury river cruise?

Cologne
One of the Rhine’s more famous cities, Cologne is home to the Dom, a true architectural gem and UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the old town, the docks and see the city light up when cruising here at Christmas, as it hosts one of the world’s largest and most exciting markets.
Koblenz
As the Rhine joins the Moselle at the Deutsches Eck, Koblenz is a popular port of call for its history and culture. Part of the gentler landscape of the Middle Rhine, this town is a mixture of modern and old, with a good collection of bars, restaurants and the pedestrian centre.
Heidelberg
A city that is enveloped by forest, Heidelberg hosts a beautiful riverside setting to gaze upon as you cruise through this great landscape. A university town renowned for its baroque Altstadt, explore the hilltop castle ruins and follow in the footsteps of Goethe, an 18th Century poet who described the region as ‘something ideal’.
