Cruise Director Questions

Q&A with Werney Beyer

With their expert knowledge and attentive nature, Scenic Cruise Directors are the ultimate complement to a luxury river cruise on the waterways of Europe — providing help, guidance and a friendly face at every stage of your unforgettable Scenic journey.

From the moment you arrive at your destination airport to your final farewell, our Cruise Directors will be on hand to help ensure your tour goes off without a hitch.

We spoke to Werney Beyer, one of our most respected and experienced directors. Werney has been sailing the Rhine and the Danube for nearly ten years, giving him unparalleled insight into the local cultures and traditions of these great waterways.

We asked Werney where he recommends to eat in Germany, his favourite stretch of river and his most memorable Scenic excursion.

You've been sailing The Danube and Rhine for almost ten years, what is your favourite port?
Rudesheim along the legendary Rhine Gorge is one of the most famous wine towns in the world and well known for the Riesling grape and just happens to be my hometown.

What stretch of rover do you always look forward to passing?
The entire Upper Middle Rhine valley where you can see historical castles, steep vineyards, the majestic River Rhine and wonderful scenic beauty - that's the place to be in Europe.

What restaurant do you recommend to the Scenic guests when they visit Germany?
I like to tell our guests about the historic Bavarian sausage restaurant Wurstkuchl in Regenburg, to enjoy some Bratwurst with sweet mustard, and a Bavarian wheat beer.

What's your shopping tip for guests when they go ashore?
I recommend the Birkenstock shops for the famous German sandals at good prices (between 40-50 Euro) and you can find them in Nuremberg, Bamberg and Rudesheim.

What is one of your most memorable Scenic shore excursions?
A bicycle tour through the countryside from Breisach in Germany's Black Forest to Colmar in France. Along the way we pass little French villages in Alsace and have a cheese tasting at a local market in Nieuf Brisach - just stunning!
