Rhine River Cruises

By Viator, November 2013

4 470 Reviews | Add your review

Enjoy the lush Rhine Valley from it's best vantage point - the Rhine itself!  Discover the beauty of the KD Rhine Pass, hop on and off as many times as you like from Cologne to Mainz, and on the Moselle between Koblenz and Cochen. See a cool castle? Disembark and explore. Hop off at Bonn to wander its winding lanes and visit Beethoven’s house, then watch the sunset from the Rhine with a nice German pilsner. Dream of castles and fairy tales while enjoying the breathtaking scenery, cruising by paddle steamer on the Nostalgic Route. Narrow lanes, medieval architecture and romantic half-timbered houses combine to make charming Braubach "the town of wine and roses."

As you travel down the Rhine, enjoy near-constant stunning views of the beautiful valleys buttressing the river , as you pass by beautiful riverside towns. One classic Rhine route takes you past the Loreley Rock to the picturesque town of Rüdesheim. The Rüdesheim Wine Festival is held every summer, with the coronation of the Weinkönigin (“Wine Queen”) and her princesses. Visit the Abbey of St. Hildegard of Bingen, Siegfried's Mechanical Music Instruments and the medieval Torture Museum. 

Visit the remains of the Roman Fort of Boppard, and Bad Salzig Spa Park. Victor Hugo described Bacharach (named for Bacchus, the ancient Roman God of wine) as one of the "world's prettiest towns." Marvel at the beautiful hilltop castles and lush green hills as you cruise along the river with the barges.
