Rhine river cruises

Discover the distinctive culture and wonder of the Rhine
The Rhine is an icon of the continent. This is a river of immense contrast, where medieval castles and sweeping forests conjure legends and fairy tales, and wondrous cities pave a fascinating link between the present and the past. A river cruise classic no less, and one that has become a rite of passage for many a discerning traveller.
From its source in the Swiss Alps, the Rhine cuts a hefty course through the heart of Europe, lingering in Germany for the longest stretch before veering northwest into the Netherlands, where it empties into the North Sea. Such is the influence of the Rhine that many of Europe’s most prestigious cities can be found on its banks, including Basel, Cologne and Amsterdam — providing a veritable melting pot of culture and architectural splendour. Book your luxury river cruise on the Rhine, and experience the distinct spirit and traditions of every region that exists along this majestic waterway — all in absolute luxury and comfort.

Perfect for:

  • Wine connoisseurs: Strasbourg, France
  • Architecture enthusiasts: Cologne, Germany
  • Nature-lovers: The Rhine Gorge, Germany
  • Creatives: The Black Forest and The Rhine Gorge, Germany

A Journey through Europe’s History


Once one of the continent’s great trade routes, the influence of the Rhine can be felt in the architectural wonders and unique traditions which exist on its banks today. Thanks to the diverse events and excursions of our Scenic Freechoice and Enrich programmes, unravelling the rich, historic tapestry of the Rhine is effortless. 

Delight in the medieval ambience during a magnificent feast at Marksberg Castle. Explore the fascinating exhibits of the Neanderthal Museum in Cologne. Soak up the traditional Germanic spirit of the Black Forest and the World Heritage-listed Rhine Gorge. Take a relaxing guided tour through Germany’s oldest city, Trier. Enjoy a classical evening concert at the resplendent Baroque Palace of Rastatt. Or dip into France and stroll through Strasbourg’s charming old town, where half-timbered houses and charming Alsation Winstubs await.
