First time. Every time. A Rhine River cruise is pure perfection.


A Rhine River Cruise is undoubtedly one of the most pleasurable first-time river cruising experiences a traveler can possibly enjoy. Like Huck Finn rafting down the Mississippi, a Rhine River cruise journey will relax your mind and body and make the stresses of a busy work-life seem thousands of miles away — after all, they are!

Flowing over 500 miles north — yes north, unlike most of the rivers and waterways in North America, which flow south — and east from Basel, Switzerland, the Rhine River can take you to ports in France and Germany on the way to Amsterdam and the awe-inspiring Waterways of Holland.

Enroute, you will experience a taste of what makes Europe: its outstanding museums such as the renowned Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank house in Amsterdam; spectacular gardens, including Holland’s fabled Keukenhof Gardens, home to over seven million flowers; Cologne with its spectacular, UNESCO-World-Heritage-designated cathedral; and castles, castles, castles along the upper-middle Rhine valley, a magnificent 40-mile stretch of Germany running between Koblenz and Rudesheim. This region, too, has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Only a short cruise away from all the remarkable castles is the magnificent Black Forest and its world famous spa town, Baden-Baden, the incredible family-owned winery in Cochem (you’ll love their Rieslings) and of course the Heidelberg and its remarkable "Schloss" (German for castle).

A particularly spectacular sight is Rhinestone Castle, which seems to sprout right out of jagged rock high above the river. One of the oldest castles on the Rhine, this fairytale fortress still has a working drawbridge. From the battlements, you will enjoy sweeping views of the Rhine River. From a vantage point just beyond the rock where the castle resides will provide you an unparalleled photo opportunity to shoot one of the most photographed and least know castles in the world — it’s a must photo-op.

The Rhine is fine almost anytime. If you want to avoid the crowds, take a trip in early May or October. If wine is your thing, then a fall harvest-time cruise in October is a must. For late September and October cruises, you’ll also pick up one of the “funnest” things we have ever done, what the Brit’s would call a “pub-crawl.” That’s the world famous month-long Oktoberfest the very festive time where almost all of German celebrates.
