Summertime on the Rhine

August is one of the finest times to embark on our 8-day Rhine Highlights river cruise. From enjoying warm evenings on your private balcony to cocktails on the Sun Deck, you’ll make the most of the spectacular season as you travel in award-winning style from Amsterdam to Basel. 

There are so many things to look forward to during this cruise. Here are a few of our personal highlights…

After exploring the historic treasures of Cologne, which includes the magnificent Kölner Dom, you will be invited onto the Sun Deck of your ship to enjoy a Sundowner cocktail event as you make gentle progress down the tranquil river. This is the ideal opportunity to raise a toast to the beauty of the river as the sun begins to set on another spectacular day of discovery.

In Koblenz you can choose to take advantage of our complimentary e-bikes. These electrically-assisted bicycles make exploring a new town or city a breeze. Simply hop on and race your way through cobbled streets, grand squares and charming backroads – a real summertime treat.

One of the most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the agenda is the famous Rhine Gorge. Be sure to soak up the castle-dotted hilltops and mighty sweeping landscapes as you cruise the 65km-long stretch of water. Whether on the panoramic Sun Deck or your private balcony, you’ll feel as if you’re travelling through a fairy tale with remnants of the past lurking around every placid bend.

When the evening arrives in Rastatt, your presence will be requested at the nearby Baroque Palace of Rastatt. Here you are invited to attend an exclusive, Scenic-only classical concert and tour of the magical grounds. 
Crossing the border into France brings even more unforgettable moments, notably during a Freechoice excursion to La Petite France in Strasbourg. Half-timbered houses quietly line the idyllic streets, gentle rivers weave calmly through the town and quaint coffee houses offer a welcoming retreat from a spot of retail therapy. 

And don’t forget, almost everything you could ever wish for is included in the price of your cruise. For a fully list of inclusions click here. To find out more about this cruise view the itinerary now.
