the Rhine

Travelling through six countries and running for 766 miles, the River Rhine is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe. This waterway begins as a stream in the Swiss Alps before increasing in pace and volume on its way to the North Sea.

It takes in the mountain slopes of Switzerland, the lush Rhine Plains, the dramatic German river gorge, and the flat landscape of the Netherlands. Rhine cruises offer beautiful scenery and wonderful experiences all year round.

With Basel, Koblenz, Dusseldorf and Cologne just some of the beautiful cities that the Rhine carves through along its route, Rhine River cruises offer the chance to explore the rich culture, history and architecture that Europe is renowned for.

Travellers can enjoy a number of fascinating journeys along the Rhine or a cruise on the river en route to a further flung destination. With the Rhine linking with the Main and Moselle rivers, it is easy to explore even more of Europe and beyond.

There are more castles in the Rhine Valley than in any other valley in the world
